Meet the woman who got a facelift at 80 years old

Did this really happened? Well, 80 years old Elizabeth Moore said she got it because her ageing face with all it wrinkles no longer matched how she felt inside. Despite her family warning her against, 8 months ago, the retired university lecturer got a facelift, dermabrasion and fat injections into her cheeks. The five-hour operation cost her about $15,000
"I hoped I could go back to looking as I did a decade ago, when I felt more confident. I wanted to look the very best I could, and now I feel I do. I look in the mirror and feel much more confident about what I see. I no longer look tired and miserable, which I did previously because my cheeks were sunken and I had deep lines near my mouth. I now look rested and well." She said...

‘I never thought of myself as particularly attractive, so it wasn’t about trying to recapture the beauty I once had and then lost. I’ve just always tried to make the best of myself because I think the image you present to the world is important - people judge you by it." she says.
Usually doctors advice people over 65 years to reconsider having plastic surgery but according to recent survey, more older women are going under the knife these days: more than 60% of surgeons reported a marked increase in over-65s seeking an image overhaul.
