Published: Fri, February 28, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.



Friends say you look tired. You suddenly realize how much you look like your mother -- or grandmother. You practice pulling back the skin of your cheeks. You're thinking of a "procedure."

Do you want a lift? A mini laser lunchtime treatment? What about liposuction?

Whom do you ask? For starters, research with the new book Change Your Looks, Change Your Life: Quick Fixes and Cosmetic Surgery Solutions for Looking Younger, Feeling Healthier, and Living Better (HarperResource; $27.95) by Michelle Copeland, a physician who specializes in cosmetics surgery.
