How Old Is Too Old for Breast Augmentation?
The purpose of breast augmentation is to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. While the lower age limit typically begins around 18, depending on several factors, many individuals wonder if there is a recommended upper age limit as well. Our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Charles Perry, performs breast enlargement on women from a broad range of ages. He indicates the most important factor will be that the patient is a nonsmoker in good general health. It’s not uncommon for women in their 50s and 60s (and beyond) to undergo this procedure or another type of breast surgery, including breast lift with or without breast implants. We are also witnessing an increase in women requesting autologous fat transfer to supplement their breast enhancement, and to improve their overall look as well.
If you’re interested in breast augmentation, Dr. Perry can evaluate your anatomic factors and overall well-being during your initial consultation. You and Dr. Perry can then develop a customized treatment plan that best suits your desired outcome.
