From the Publisher:
At the age of forty-seven and married to a man seven years her junior, Helen Bransford decided it was time to recapture that face she no longer saw when she looked in the mirror. Her surgery involved a "touch of lipo" under the chin, a forehead peel, an upper eyelid tuck, dermabrasion under the eyes, and a standard lift, and she chronicles it all--with lots of sage advice for the uninitiated--from the moment the decision was made to that day, a month after the event, when she was "dead certain" she'd done the right thing. From first to last, she provides invaluable guidance and suggestions that can come only from experience.
