Did you know that a majority of women who get breast augmentation are in their 30s and 40s? Think about it: women in their 40s are usually done having children, have rising careers, and know themselves enough to understand what they really want. With that wisdom and maturity comes certainty—making them the ideal candidates for a breast augmentation. Want to find out what it’s like to be 40 and undergoing a breast augmentation? Read through our helpful guide on everything you need to know about getting breast augmentation on your 40s.
This Is Your Time
Your 40s is the perfect junction between your experienced, more mature years and your younger, more physical years. You’ve braved through pregnancy, life changes, and motherhood—think of your breast augmentation as an affirmation of how much you’ve gone through, and how much you deserve to feel confidence and pride about your body. If you get a breast augmentation in your 40s, then you can look forward to:
- Perkier, firmer breasts
- Enhanced cleavage
- Feeling more alluring and feminine
- Fuller breasts
- A curvier figure—allowing you to wear new styles of clothing
Lift Yourself Up
Women in their 40s might be beginning to experience the beginning stages of aging on their breasts, so you might need to have a lift with your breast enlargement. Implants have weight and can stretch out loosened breast tissue. A breast lift can:
- Lift sagging breasts
- Resize overly large nipples
- Prevent implants from causing further sagging in the breast
- Make the breast perkier
Remember Your Mammogram
Most doctors suggest that women get regular mammograms once they hit 40, so if you’re concerned about the effects of implants on mammograms, don’t be. Implants won’t interfere with a screening—although it’s highly recommended that you give the technician prior notice about your implants before every test. If you want, you can ask your surgeon about a clinic with radiologists who have experience reading mammograms of women with implant.
