Breast Augmentation for Older Women
When it comes to breast augmentation, your physical health is much more important than your age in determining whether or not you are a candidate. Many adult women – even those in their 50s and 60s – undergo breast augmentation surgery with successful results.
While older adults may be at an increased risk for certain breast augmentation complications, this is true for any kind of surgical procedure. Ask your primary doctor if they believe your body is healthy and strong enough for a breast augmentation, and be sure to inform Dr. Kim of any medical conditions you have.
Restoring Your Confidence
In the past few years, more middle-aged and older women have elected to have a breast augmentation. Unlike younger women, who usually want a breast enhancement to make their breasts larger, older women are often looking to restore the volume and shape that their breasts have lost over time.
Multiple pregnancies and breast-feeding – along with the natural effects of age – can all cause your breasts to sag and lose volume, compromising your overall appearance. A breast augmentation, often combined with a breast lift, can address these issues, providing you with more youthful, proportionate breasts.
The recent popularity of the mommy makeover procedure is part of why more older women are choosing to have breast augmentations. Mommy makeovers are personalized combinations of plastic surgery procedures designed to help women regain the shapelier, more attractive figure they had before pregnancy.
Mommy makeovers typically include procedures such as:
- Breast augmentation
- Tummy tuck
- Breast lift
During a personal consultation, Dr. Kim will examine your medical history, your skin’s elasticity, and other factors to ensure you are a good candidate for a breast augmentation. Approval from your primary doctor may be necessary before you qualify for surgery, but no matter how old you are, it’s never too late to consider a breast augmentation.
