Health History More Important Than Age for Abdominoplasty
If you are in good health, age is less of a consideration. With my older patients, I try to shorten the procedure as much as possible. The longer the procedure, the more risk for an older person. Sometimes that means prioritizing procedures.
Should I live with it.

Keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative procedure may not be in your best interest. I would suggest that you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
