Wanting to look as good as they feel, more 70- and 80-year-olds are seeking plastic surgery, doctors say. "People say, just because my life age is 84, doesn't mean I have to be happy or content looking 80," said plastic surgeon Norman Rowe. Most older people seek modest enhancements, Rowe and fellow plastic surgeon Julius Few said. A recent study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found the risks from plastic surgery no greater in people older than 65 than in those younger.
