    On the one hand it is your money and if the face lift will make you feel better about how you look there is nothing wrong with wanting that. However, surgery is surgery whether an elective like a facelift or major like open heart surgery. There are always risks when you go under the knife. At your age the risk for stroke and heart attack goes up. Look at Joan Rivers situation. She went to have a throat polyp removed and lost her life. My own mother had routine hip surgery and suffered a stroke right after coming out of anesthesia. She was never the same after. I am not trying to scare you but there is no guarantee that the face lift be what you expect. So you must seriously consider if it is worth the gamble.
