I'm 50 but people say I look 20 years younger – I sold my house to pay for my facelift and other plastic surgery | The Sun

A WOMAN who sold her house to help afford a $14,000 facelift says strangers now tell her she looks 20 years younger.

Kelly Beasley, 50, decided she wanted to undergo the anti-aging cosmetic procedure when she noticed her face was “dropping fast.”

The blogger takes pride in her appearance and has been getting Botox since her late 20s — and fillers for the last 15 years.

After researching, Kelly opted for an extended facelift, neck lift, lip lift, and fat transfer from her thighs in Tijuana, Mexico, on February 14, 2023.

With the total cost coming to $14,000, she sold her house as a “cushion” for the expense of the procedure and now travels full-time in a van.

Kelly said the surgery was “easy” and after wearing a “face bra” for two weeks, she has now fully recovered and said she looks better now than she did in her 30s.

Strangers tell her she looks 20 years younger and Kelly hopes that sharing her journey will stop the shame surrounding plastic surgery.

Kelly, who is currently in Lake Tahoe, California, said: “I like to look nice.

“Around 48, my face started dropping fast. The changes were astounding.

“Fillers were not going to make a difference."

After the procedure, she said the results were "beyond what I expected" because she "didn't expect to look younger."

“People say I look in my 30s," she gushed.

“I’m loving my look and looking my most fabulous that I can.”

Kelly started researching plastic surgeons in the US after deciding she wanted to undergo a facelift.

A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that makes the face tighter and smoother by lifting and pulling back the skin.

Kelly said: “Some were really expensive — I was quoted $50,000 to $60,000.

“Then I saw a lady on TikTok talking about plastic surgery. I was astounded by her results.

“She had it [done] in Tijuana in Mexico. I wasn’t sure but I didn’t completely dismiss it.

“She said she had it for $14k — I was blown away.”

Kelly found a Facebook group for Elias Ortiz and Company plastic surgery, where she got the surgery in Tijuana, Mexico, and began looking at other women’s experiences.

She decided to email the company photos of herself and was sent a quote for $14,000. She was then signed up to be put on the cancellation waitlist.

Kelly had already put her three-bedroom house in Marana, Arizona up for sale to raise funds for the surgery.

In January, she was notified of a cancellation and was told she could book her surgery, but she didn't feel ready.

“A month later, they had another cancellation," she said — and thistime, she thought: "Let's do this."

“It was on February 14 — Happy Valentine's to me," she added.

Kelly traveled to Mexico on February 13 and had the four-hour surgery, which involved taking fat from her thighs and putting it in her lips and face, the next day.

Though she woke up with her head "wrapped in a giant crazy bandage," she was in "zero pain," just discomfort.

She also wore a "face bra" for support for two weeks.

“I started taking pictures immediately," she said.

Kelly spent six nights in a hotel in Tijuana, Mexico, before driving back to the US: “It was like six days of vacation. It was just easy.”

Kelly said she now looks and feels “phenomenal” and is happy with the “natural” results but did have to adjust to her new face.

She said: “After about a week and a half I had a minor ‘oh crap’ moment.

“Your brain is having a hard time adjusting to your face. I would look different from mirror to mirror.

“Now I absolutely love it. I’m having fun putting on makeup again.

“Before, I hadn’t been liking putting make-up on. My eyes were heavy and putting on eyeliner wouldn’t look right.”

Kelly is now constantly told she looks 20 years younger and said she prefers how she looks now to how she did when she was 30.

She said: “I think I look better now.”

Kelly is sharing her journey to advocate for plastic surgery and stop the shame surrounding it.

“Plastic surgery is shamed. If we do too much, we’re vain or insecure.

“If you don’t do anything, wear makeup or do your hair, they say: ‘You’ve let yourself go.'
