I've been refusing to act my age for years, but I'd sure hate to look as young as I'm acting. I like
the way our local lineup shows respect for the geezer surfers. When I walk out onto a taekwondo mat today, I get respect just by walking out there under my own power. Today when I look at the 38-45-year-olds commanding submarines, they look so... so young and inexperienced. I used to think they were older than dirt.
If she's spending her own 10K pounds to reach her goals, then more power to her. But I think she needs some different goals. Healthy eating, more exercise, healthier living habits, lower stress-- at her age those could all be as effective as the surgery. Besides, there are a lot of things that can go wrong (and rarely do, but still) during elective surgery under general anaesthesia. It ain't like changing a car's head gasket.
If medical science could flawlessly restore my telomeres to their original length, of course, I'd be all over that in a heartbeat.

Is that a walking cane by her left hip, or a guitar stand?
Look at the way Jimmy Buffett has aged since the 1970s, too. It'd be interesting to learn whether he's had any nips/tucks either.
OTOH I have no doubt that Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, & Steven Tyler are sporting their factory originals...
