      I read all most your articles. I have not posted on the internet since FB started at school in 2003. Maybe I am naive, but this article is a sad joke. I don’t need my wife reading this. Pull it together.

      jg — “I don’t need my wife reading this”. Really?? Wow … controlling much?

    • Elissa Backas

      are any of these really worth the price tag? We all get old. Whatever happened to being happy with yourself the way you are?

        Wanting to maintain a youthful look does not imply one is unhappy with one’s self. Would you say the same about getting your hair colored or does that mean someone is unhappy with themselves the way they are?

        • Natalie

          Dying your hair does not involve invasive and potentially risky procedures (i.e. going under anesthesia or sticking needles into their faces) in the name of ‘beauty’. That’s what saddens me: people are willing to put themselves at risk or through painful procedures in order to live up to some ideal of beauty.

      If plastic surgery is more than a dollar, it’s too expensive. I hate the idea of plastic surgery becoming standard procedure.

    • B Joseph Smith

      I dont want to get too personal here, but I had some plastic surgery done in my 40s on a appearance feature that has bothered me since my teens. After the procedure, I have felt great and look better. My only thought was “why did I not get this done sooner”. The psychological benefits cannot be overlooked!

      Thanks very much for this article! I’m 43 and yes I have considered setting up a fund for my future cosmetic procedures. If the purpose of LearnVest is to help us all be responsible financially, I think being aware of our future lifestyle expenses is helpful.

      I love Learnvest and apply many of the suggestions. I have a suggestion to save money and get the same collagen stimulating results, lip plumping and neck firming benefits without any pokes. The doctors who created Proactiv now have an anti-age line. It is so affordable and so amazing. I loved the results so much, I started selling it myself. If u don’t believe me, just check out my website. Amyforsythe.myrandf.com

      One thing this article is missing is the “you should have an emergency fund before having one of these done.” If something goes wrong you will have to pay for medical bills and possibly other procedures to try and fix any damage. Also having a procedure go badly can lead to depression and job loss. I’m not against trying to make yourself look better. Just make sure you go to a board certified PS and have done tons of research. And have an emergency fund because nothing is risk free.

        That’s great advice Anon – thanks

      While I don’t judge anyone who chooses to have these procedures done, I don’t understand why this article is on LearnVest. Sure, I get the “bang for buck” aspect but unless you’re in a profession where appearance matters this article doesn’t really seem like appropriate content here.

      • I really believe you don’t get it. Appearance does matter in your profession, but don’t you think there is value in feeling good about the way you look to yourself? You are your own best investment.
