83 Year-Old Great Gramma Gets New Boobs
A California woman made the national news after getting breast implants at age 83. Now she is thick in the controversy.
The culprit or hero is shown on the right, the boob itself.
Marie Kolstad who, at 83, is a full-time property manager with a total of 25 grandchildren and great-grandchildren made a statement.
She put it this way: "Your breasts go in one direction and your brain goes in another." So she spent $8,000 on a boob job -- specifically a breast lift with implants.
"Physically, I'm in good health, and I just feel like, why not take advantage of it?" she told the newspaper, adding, "I want my children to be proud of what I look like."
She also probably likes the stares she gets from men admiring her new assets.
ABC commentators debated the merits, and safety, of such surgery while over at ThirdAge.com, Kolstad was cheered on: "Can't take it with you ... go for it grandma!"
For now Kolstad is trying to keep a low profile, although her new stand-up boobs make that more difficult.
It is not known if Kolstad has a boyfriend and if so, what he thinks about her body enhancements. Kolstad reportedly is thrilled.
