How Old Is Too Old For Breast Augmentation?
The reasons a woman decides to undergo breast augmentation are both personal and unique to the individual. While our popular culture commonly associates breast augmentation with women in their 20s or 30s, the truth is that women of all ages seek out an experienced plastic surgeon to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. According to Dr. Scott Miller, there is no particular age limit for breast augmentation; the most important criteria is that you are in good overall health to undergo surgery and that you maintain realistic expectations for the procedure.
During the consultation process, Dr. Miller will conduct a physical exam, review your medical history, discuss your cosmetic goals, and determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. It is important to remember that breast augmentation is designed to increase the size of the breasts to create a fuller bust line and a more proportionate figure. Conversely, a breast lift is designed to reverse the effects of the natural aging process, reduce sagging, and elevate the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest wall.
Some of our older patients wish to address both of these common concerns simultaneously and opt to combine breast augmentation using breast implants with breast lift surgery for a more comprehensive rejuvenation. Your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Miller is a time to openly communicate your wants and goals so he can create a custom-tailored surgical approach that can meet your needs and expectations.
