Granny Implants

Marie Kolstad, an 83-year-old great-grandmother from Orange County, Calif., surprised her family last month when she underwent breast augmentation surgery, according to CBS Los Angeles. The $8,000 [U.S.], three-hour operation boosted her from a size 32A to a 36C, and she’s loving the results. Ms. Kolstad, a widow, thought that her family wouldn’t approve of the breast lift and implants. That’s why she didn’t tell them about it until the day before the surgery, according to CBS. Ms. Kolstad has four grandchildren. The New York Times first reported her story. Ms. Kolstad told them that “My mother lived a long time and I’m just taking it for granted that that will happen to me. And I want my children to be proud of what I look like.” Dr. Anthony Youn, a plastic surgeon from Michigan, told Good Morning America that health is more of a consideration than age is when contemplating cosmetic surgery. He added that, in some ways, “70 is the new 50.”
