How Old Is Too Old for Breast Augmentation?

How old is too old for breast augmentation?As a plastic surgery practice in Las Vegas, we see patients from all walks of life. While many women choose to undergo breast augmentation in their 20s and 30s, this is by no means the only age range in which breast enhancement can be performed. Our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Samuel M. Sohn, typically performs breast surgery on individuals 18 and up, and there is no specific upper age limit for this procedure. If you’re thinking about getting breast implants but are concerned about whether you qualify, he can determine if this procedure may be right for you based on your unique anatomic needs and desired outcome.

Some of the factors that should be weighed when considering breast augmentation include your current health. If you have any adverse health conditions that could affect your ability to undergo surgery or to heal properly, these indications must be taken into account. Additionally, if you’ve had one or more children, you may have significant skin laxity in your breasts. You may recognize this effect as drooping, sagging, or general volume loss. In this case, our surgeon may recommend a breast lift with implants to help achieve the fullness, shape, and size you desire. When you arrive for your initial consultation, Dr. Sohn will develop a customized treatment plan that can optimize your results.

Many women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond undergo breast augmentation. If you have always wanted breast implants but have been putting it off, or if you are considering this procedure after having children, our experienced plastic surgeon may be able to help.
