How Old Is too Old for Breast Augmentation?
There is no reason breast augmentation, or any type of breast surgery, should be limited to women in their 20s and 30s. As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the nation, breast enlargement appeals to a wide range of women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond who desire fuller, shapelier breasts. While there are some considerations to weigh during the consultation process, our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. James A. Matas, can help you determine if breast enhancement surgery will be right for your anatomic needs and desired outcome.
Your health and safety are the most important considerations for Dr. Matas, and he will carefully examine you prior to developing a customized treatment plan. Many women undergo a breast lift or breast augmentation following their childbearing years, and they may wait a year after having their final child, 10 years, or more! What matters as far as candidacy requirements is that you are in good overall health and have good quality of skin.
After establishing your health, Dr. Matas will determine which procedure can provide the best possible results. In some cases, breast augmentation alone can achieve the desired outcome. In other instances, the presence of skin laxity may determine that a breast lift with breast implants can best provide the preferred volume and shape. Dr. Matas utilizes a wide range of implant types to help you achieve the results you want most.
