Marie Kolstad, an 83-year old grandmother of 12, recently became the oldest woman to receive breast implants. She’s not alone as WorldCrunch reports:

Marie Kolstad’s case may seem a little over the, er, top, but it nevertheless reflects the latest trend in plastic surgery. If traditional surgery patients in their 30s and 40s are trying to forestall aging, this new group aims to recover their youth. In the U.S., over-65s now account for 8% of the clientele at plastic surgery clinics. The American Society for Plastic Surgery’s 2010 statistics indicate that nearly 700,000 operations were performed by plastic surgeons in the U.S. on patients over 65. Aging baby boomers clearly have the time and money to polish up their golden years.
