Although age and genetics play significant roles in the appearance of your breasts, achieving attractive breast augmentation results often depends less on age and more on your cosmetic surgeon’s ability to perform a procedure that accentuates and enhances your frame. This means that even in your 40s, 50s and sometimes older, you may be a viable breast augmentation candidate.

Determining Breast Augmentation Candidacy At Any Age
Although many women choose breast augmentation in their 20s and 30s, women over the age of 40 account for more than 25 percent of all breast augmentations annually, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Frankly, as long as you meet the right criteria, you can safely undergo surgery at age.
Factors to consider when determining your breast augmentation candidacy include:
- Your general health – You will need to be physically healthy enough to safely undergo surgery.
- Your childbearing history – For older women, pregnancy and nursing are usually in the past. While this is ideal for undergoing breast augmentation, you may actually benefit from a full mommy makeover if your body is showing the lasting effects of motherhood not only in your breasts but in your abdomen as well.
- Your aesthetic goals – If reducing the appearance of sagging breasts due to natural aging is your primary goal, a breast lift might actually be a more beneficial option.
- Your skin health – The quality and longevity of your breast augmentation results is dependent upon the health of your skin.
- Mammogram efficacy – While breast implants will not harm you or impact cancer mortality, they can make cancer harder to detect by reducing the visibility of your breasts during mammogram screenings.
Whether you consider yourself old or young, breast augmentation can offer a range of benefits to the right candidates at any age.
