To spend £700 on a liquid facelift?

I am in the process of sorting out myself after putting everything except myself first. I will be 50 in a few months. Basically I am in process of losing weight and toning up. Skin not too bad as never smoked or been a sun worshiper and have always taken care of skin.

However my cheeks have lost volume and I have hollows under eyes. Cheek fillers and tear troughs will sort this out but the cost is about £700.

Filler can last up to two years. I have my cheeks done and it makes the world of difference. I don't think it's vain to want to look a bit less knackered and harassed. Mine doesn't make me look younger than my 43 year old self and neither do I want it to but it does make me feel better when I look in the mirror.
If your face is sliding, cheek filler will put it back where it was. Get that done first as you might find you don't even need tear troughs done after it.
I will post a couple of pictures so you can see my results.
Alternatively, you could consider a PDO threadlift? Gosh - sound like a right enabler Wink

I don't know if you can tell from this photo but cheek filler definitely works- was more of a melted triangle beforehand. I can show you a photo a few days after having filler where I am still a bit swollen but hopefully not too Madonnaesque or Jocelyn Wildensteiny - others may beg to differ though.

Jeezo dame

I am a couple of years older than you and I reckon I would pass for at least 20 years older than you Sad

Self pity aside, you look great.

Ha, ha Sheldon you should have seen the befores! I really should be nursing my elderly, overheated cat ( that's why I am up at this ungodly hour) not enabling and encouraging folk with my injection- happy ways.

I think that is good advice IceBeing.

What does 'getting your cheeks done' mean? Mind is boggled!

DameDoom · 05/07/2015 05:53

That means you don't need it Destiny. It's the day you wake up, look in the mirror and don't recognise yourself anymore. When you look even more knackered than you feel.

Hi MN - can you move this to S&B for ghost? I'll PM her. Thanks.

sad that cosmetic threads are friendly and supportive and breastfeeding ones are cruel competitive and bitchy.

I would do it, I have hyoloric acid but it only lasts a few months. Botox around the eyes is my answer to everything. finally don't get told I look knackered every 5 minutes.

and my self esteem is fine. Better than fine actually maybe even too good. I find myself feeling sorry for the sad little haters.on MN most of the time.

alrayyan nowt better than a bit of Botox - it's a wonder my head isn't on back to front!

Op you've every right to treat youself - it's your money and your face. However since you've asked for opinions, mine is that you'd be starting a battle you're never going to win.

It's not just that fillers aren't permanent, it's that ageing comes at you in all kinds of guises and from all directions. Fix one symptom and two more will pop up to take it's place. Plus once you're into your fifties, it accelerates. However good DameDoom looks, she's she's only 43 and I doubt she's hit that stage yet.

I'm definitely not one of those who say thinking about your looks = low self esteem - I'm in my late fifties and as vain as I ever was! I just think that with fillers and the like, all you're doing it buying a bit of time before the next thing hits. If you're happy with that then fair enough.
