Plastic Surgery for Senior Citizens

I spent some time last week in Tallahassee and Thomasville, Ga., working on a New York Times story about senior citizens getting cosmetic surgery. Mary Graham is 77 and had a facelift and breast implants earlier this year. She's possibly the most eccentric person I've ever photographed. She works seven days a week, running one restaurant and making plans to open another. She has boundless energy, plenty of money, and doesn't take 'no' for an answer. She certainly does not look 77.
