Am I Too Old for a Breast Lift?

Are you tired of watching your breasts drift down while your age ticks up? A breast lift may be the solution you need. At Brooks Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on helping people in and around Hollywood, Florida, look their best at every age. 

Our practice offers breast lifts to improve the appearance of your breasts. And you’re not alone in wanting to improve the appearance of your breasts. In fact, in the past two decades the number of breast lift surgeries has increased by 70%.

But how old is too old for this popular cosmetic procedure? Board-certified surgeon Dr. Christopher Brooks answers your questions in this informative post.

What are the reasons to consider a breast lift?

Women come to Dr. Brooks at Brooks Plastic Surgery seeking breast lifts for many different reasons. But most of the time, these reasons relate to age or sagging (ptosis). 

Some of the more common reasons women consider breast lifts are to:

There are also women who inherit breasts that naturally droop or sag. Breast lift surgery can address all of these issues, and it can help with minor back pain related to ptosis of larger breasts. 

How old is too old for a breast lift?

It may be hard to believe, but age isn’t the most important factor when it comes to determining whether a breast lift is right for you. Instead, your overall health is the most significant consideration. 

Certain medical conditions, like a clotting disorder or condition that affects your ability to heal, may impact whether you’re a good candidate for breast lift surgery, no matter your age.  

The truth is that there is no age cutoff for breast lift surgery. In fact, women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s experience amazing results with breast lift surgery as long as they’re in good overall health.

Once Dr. Brooks determines you’re a good candidate for a breast lift, he uses the best surgical techniques and technologies so you enjoy a safe and effective procedure. He customizes the procedure for your needs, taking into account how much sagging you have, the volume of your breasts, your skin quality, and your age. 

In most breast lifts, you keep the same breast volume, but Dr. Brooks repositions the breast mound and tightens the skin to give you perkier, more youthful-looking breasts.
