Am I Too Old For Breast Implants?
21 Jun 2018 Am I Too Old For Breast Implants?
We usually tend to think of only the young vibrant women getting implants, but regardless of age, breasts are important to all women. Breasts help define a woman’s femininity and help make her feel complete. While there is a minimum age for receiving breast implants (18 for saline and 22 for silicone), there is no real age restriction for women who desire to have implants later in life. Women of all ages have successfully undergone breast augmentation to increase their volume and restore the shape of their breasts. Breast implants and whether you can receive them is not dependent on your age but rather your overall health.
Are You In Good Physical Health?
You must remember breast augmentation is surgery. Your body must be physically capable to undergo surgery and be able to recover safely and effectively. A physical evaluation and blood tests will need to be conducted to ensure you are healthy for surgery. A major concern, no matter your age, is always being put under anesthesia. Your primary care physician, as well as Dr. Keith Neaman, will need to medically clear you to prevent any possible complications. If you live a healthy lifestyle and practice good habits, such as not smoking or drinking, you are more likely to have a successful surgical outcome.
What are Your Breast Augmentation Expectations?
Along with being in good physical health, you must have realistic expectations. Most young women considering breast implants desire to enhance their chest to achieve a fuller and curvier frame. On the other hand, most older women contemplating breast implants are looking to restore their fullness and reverse signs of aging, such as volume loss, excess skin and breast drooping. As a result, a breast lift combined with breast implants may be recommended to achieve optimum results.
