How Old is Too Old for Breast Implants? We frequently see women in their fifties who request breast augmentation. In the vast majority of these patients, breast augmentation can be performed without any difficulty. It’s important to realize that as we get older changes occur our bodies. Many women in their fifties have had multiple pregnancies. In many cases they have developed loss of breast volume and associated breast sag. For these reasons many of these patients will need breast lifts at the time of their breast augmentation.
In addition, as we age we frequently develop other health problems. It’s therefore important to have an appropriate medical evaluation before proceeding with surgery. This might include an EKG and laboratory studies.
Even when these issues are considered, patients who have undergone breast augmentation in there fifties report high satisfaction rates. In today’s world, fifty is still considered young.
