Here at the practice of Dr. Semira Bayati, we see patients from virtually all walks of life and of many different ages who are considering breast augmentation. While the minimum age requirement for breast augmentation is 18 years old for saline breast implants and 22 years-old for silicone implants, there is technically no “cap” on your eligibility for the procedure in terms of age. In fact, many women in their 50s have had successful breast augmentation procedures and have beautifully rejuvenated the appearance of their breasts. While there is no upper age limit for breast augmentation, it is important to keep in mind that there are other factors to consider that will have an effect on candidacy, and some of them are age-related.
As we age, we are more prone to developing certain health problems, which makes it more important than ever to have regular check-ups with your primary care physician. If you are considering breast augmentation, you should have a full medical evaluation and ask your doctor if you are at an acceptable risk for surgery. Once you come in for a breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Bayati, she will perform a comprehensive examination and go over your medical records in addition to talking with you about your needs and goals. During this meeting, Dr. Bayati can determine your candidacy for the procedure. Patients who are reasonably healthy and do not present a heightened risk for surgery are often candidates for breast augmentation regardless of age; however, it is very important to have a comprehensive medical exam, talk with your doctor, and be honest with your plastic surgeon about your medical history to increase the chances of safe, effective treatment with results that meet your expectations.
