Is There a “Right Age” For Breast Augmentation?

We tend to view aesthetic changes through the prism of age. For example, a common choice for a woman in her 20s is breast augmentation. When she reaches her 30s and has had children, she’s ready for a tummy tuck and breast lift, also known as a Mommy Makeover. In her 40s and 50s, it’s time to turn back the clock with anti-aging facial treatments. It sounds logical.

However, when I see women considering breast augmentation at my practice serving Naperville, Plainfield, and Downers Grove, IL, many are in their 40s and 50s. What explains that? Let’s explore whether or not there’s a “right age” for breast augmentation below.

Women Of All Ages Want to Improve Their Breast Appearance

It seems that attitudes about aesthetic enhancement cut across generational lines, according to a survey from the popular online plastic surgery forum RealSelf. The survey showed similar interests among women across all age demographics. When it came to their breasts, more than 40% of women in their 20s and 30s weren’t satisfied with their appearance. Older women who felt the same way topped 30%, proving that the desire for beautiful and proportional breasts is shared amongst women of all ages.

Age Isn’t a Factor for Breast Augmentation

So what does this survey tell us? I’d say the message is that age isn’t a major factor when it comes to achieving satisfying results from breast augmentation. In fact, that’s the message I communicate to my patients when they come in for a consultation and express worries that they’re too old for breast enhancement surgery. Clearly, women of all ages deserve to look and feel comfortable and confident in their own skin by undergoing breast augmentation and other life-changing cosmetic procedures.

Safety Is Key For All Breast Surgery Patients

There really is no such thing as an age limit for personal satisfaction. My primary concern when I consult with any patient is safety. The overall health of a potential patient is much more important than his or her birth date. Of course, age plays a role in my assessment. For example, a woman in her 20s is less likely to need a breast lift than someone in her 50s. Older patients may have concerns about anesthesia, and younger patients may have questions about breastfeeding with implants. I thoroughly address all areas of concern during our breast augmentation consultation so that women of all ages can embark on their transformation with confidence. The bottom line is that all women are potential breast augmentation candidates.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon who has performed breast augmentation for women in every phase of life, I’ve personally seen patients across the age spectrum enjoy the confidence-boosting benefits of this transformative procedure.
