Absolutely NOT!! Assuming you are in good overall health, breast reduction surgery is well tolerated with a relatively easy post-op recovery, In fact, reducing the size of your breasts should relieve your back , neck and shoulder pain and allow you to live a much healthier active life for your next 30 years!!
Thank you for the question.
You are absolutely not “too old” for the breast reduction procedure assuming you are “cleared" for the procedure by your medical doctor. Hopefully, your only regret after the procedure, will be that you wish you had done it sooner in life. Breast reduction is one of the most patient pleasing operations we do.
Please make sure you are working with a well experienced board certified plastic surgeon.
Probably the singlest most important factor is your overall health rather than your chronological age. Depending on several factors including techniques used, there may be additional concerns about viability
Breast reduction at age 62: only regret is not doing it sooner!
Assuming you are otherwise reasonably healthy, there is no age limit for a breast reduction. Breast reduction is one of the most gratifying surgeries I perform--nearly every woman wishes she'd done it sooner (no matter her age!). See a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Best wishes!
There is no age limit on breast surgery, as long as you are a healthy nonsmoker. Many of my patients are older, and are so thrilled with the results of surgery, results can be life changing. Go for a consult!
I have not yet discovered an age limit for breast reduction surgery. Every woman will benefit from the symptom relief. As you age, the symptoms will become more of an interference with your activities, and a breast reduction may allow you to be much more comfortable. Of course, there may be health factors which may affect your candidacy, but age alone is not one of them.
If you are wearing a 36J bra and are having symptoms, you are definitely a candidate for a breaqst reduction if your overall state of health is reasonable. I have performed reductions several times in patients who are older than you.
