84-year-old had boob job to bag a man

06 December 2011

An 84-year-old woman who had breast enlargement surgery has revealed that she couldn’t be happier with the results. Marie Kolstad is officially the oldest person in the world to have had breast enlargement surgery and the pensioner stands by her decision. Kolstad, from California, spent £5,000 on the surgery, which saw her go from a 36B to a 38D and have her breast lifted at the same time.In an interview, she 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.” Of the boob job, the mother of four – who also has 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren – said: “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.” Her daughters were concerned about the operation, given their mother’s age, but Kolstad insists she wouldn’t have gone ahead if she wasn’t in the best of health. To those who question her decision, she has a very simple answer: “Why shouldn't I look as good as I feel?”
