Breast Augmentation Series: What You Need to Know about Breast Augmentation in Your 50s

You are in your 50s and life has just begun! If you’re enjoying this new decade, but feel a certain change or alteration in your appearance could boost your self-confidence, or even help to rejuvenate your life, then why not go for it?

Specifically, if you want to learn about breast augmentation in your 50s, then you’ve come to the right place!

Chances are, a little bit of doubt has managed to work its way into your head. Perhaps you’re even wondering if you’re too old for a breast augmentation. The short answer: no, you’re not . . . and here’s why!

Generally speaking, women in their 50s are not only more confident, but also self-assured, meaning they know what they want and go for it. Women in their 50s may even be more financially, emotionally, and mentally prepared to undergo plastic surgery. However, as stated above, for those who may need it this type of surgery can also help boost confidence.

It’s no secret that the aging process causes our bodies to change, and not always for the better. In particular, breasts are a common body part known to negatively change for various factors, such as:

  • Pregnancy and/or the act of breastfeeding can cause breasts to lose volume
  • With age, it’s realistic for breast to droop or sag
  • Breasts often change due to weight loss and gain
  • After time, nipples may begin to point downward

Breast augmentation can successfully assist with all of the issues listed above by increasing the size and fullness. Breast implants come in different shapes, sizes, and materials, meaning you get to take control and personalize your own look.

While it’s necessary to ensure you’re healthy before any type of cosmetic procedure, despite your age, the fact becomes more important for women who are older (i.e. in their 50s). Again, with age comes change, change in the form of medical conditions, weaker skin, and the inability to properly heal after procedures. Therefore, before you decide to pursue breast augmentation, it’s recommended you speak to your family physician and verify that you and your body are both fully ready for plastic surgery.
