Most women who receive a breast augmentation do so in their 20s and 30s, but what if you’re interested in this procedure outside that age range? We often see women who are considering breast enhancement surgery in their 40s, 50s, and beyond. Our experienced plastic surgeons recognize that the desire to feel and look beautiful does not have an age limit—and for the most part, breast augmentation does not either. If you’re at or above the age of 18 (22 if you want silicone breast implants), this cosmetic treatment may be appropriate. The factors that determine candidacy include:
- Good overall health
- Reasonable expectations for the outcome
- Ability to take enough time off to properly heal
During your initial consultation, our surgeons will complete a thorough medical evaluation and discuss your goals. With this information, they can help you decide if breast augmentation is the ideal approach for your desired outcome and unique characteristics—regardless of age.
