Op-Ed: 84-year-old becomes oldest woman to ever receive a boob job

By Christopher Bates     Dec 5, 2011 in Odd News
While the majority of 84-year-old women aren't too worried about having cosmetic surgery, Marie Kolstad is one-of-a-kind, having recently undergone a breast enlargement operation.
The Californian widow is now the oldest person to have ever received a boob job, after spending £5,000 ($7,800) on her new implants.
The surgery, which Marie is delighted with, took her from a 36B to a 38D.
Marie said: "I would love to find a new man. But all the men my age want women 20 years younger. I thought I'd better take action so I can compete."
"I want someone successful but not because I want wealth. I just want someone who can stand on his own two feet and not need looking after."
"The boob job will help me because it's made me feel good about myself. People say I look 20 years younger. My girlfriends are all asking me about it and wondering how it feels."
Marie, who has four children, 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, admitted that her youngest daughter, Renee, wasn't too happy about her decision.
"She didn't like that I was getting surgery. She was worried about the anaesthesia, but she also didn't think that I needed to have anything done to my body," Marie added.
"Renee wanted to take me so she could see first hand what was going to happen. She was very nervous and had a lot of questions, but I was happy it was going ahead.
"If I wasn't already in great health I wouldn't have done it. Why shouldn't I look as good as I feel?"
Yesterday I reported on an 84-year-old woman who felt embarrassed after claiming Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents strip-searched her at JFK. Somehow I don't think Marie would mind.
