Fortunately, you decide when the right time for a breast augmentation surgery is. However, there are several factors that you should take into consideration, such as:
- Financial Situation
- Family and Life Plans
- Work demands
Factors such as when you intend to start a family, or how much vacation time you can schedule for your recovery, can affect when you choose to undergo the procedure you want. During your consultation, we can help you determine whether breast surgery fits with your current lifestyle.
The majority of women who have breast augmentations are in their twenties or thirties. The FDA has approved implants for the following ages:
- 18 years of age for saline implants
- 22 years of age for silicone implants
Many of our patients seek breast augmentation once they have completed their family and finished nursing. There is no upper age limit on receiving breast implants or having breast surgery. We have had several patients in their late sixties and early seventies, and they were extremely pleased.
If you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure, you can benefit from the confidence that this surgery can help you attain.
The biggest concern when women become older is their overall health and possibly a longer healing process.
