A Teenager Who Looks Like a Grandma

Zara is a  teenager, but has a rare genetic condition that makes her look much, much older than her years.

Lipodystrophy is a genetic disease. It is hereditary. It robs the body of the ability to produce fat cells beneath the skin. Unfortunately, there is still no known cure – Zara also received a sort of “facelift” surgery which did not produce dramatically different results.


  1. Greg Oden the N.B.A. player must have this also...

  2. She's still beautiful. She shouldn't be bullied in anyway at all... She didn't ask for it, so she shouldn't have to suffer the consequences of what the luckier ones got to say. It must already be very hard on her, I believe she is a very strong girl. She should stay strong. Go for it.(:
