Breast Implants: Q&AAsk a Question

Fantastic question - But also one that is very difficult to answer. The shape of your breasts as you age depends largely on the elasticity of the skin and the strength of the Cooper's ligaments which are suspensory structures within the breast tissue. These are the two forces at work to keep your breasts from sagging. Larger breasts place more force on these structures and are more likely to cause sagging. The larger the implant, the larger the breast and the larger the sag. Things that...
The appearance of breast implants when your 50, 60, or 70+ years old is highly correlated with how your breasts will appear when your 50, 60, or 70. No one can necessarily predict how your breasts will appear as a result of menopausal changes. This comes down to fortune telling and is similar to asking how your belly will look when you have children. No one can predict whether you will or will not have stretch marks.

Like anything else, it his difficult to predict. It depends upon many variables including genetics, age, skin laxity, weight fluctuations, etc. There really are so many different affects on implants and the breast.
Assuming that the body weight will stay the same, it is expected that the breast tissue will droop with time. If not stronge capsule forms, the implant will go down with the breast, which is good. This will create a droopy but natural look. If a capsule forms the implant could stay higher while the breast tissue goes down.
Implants can look good regardless of one's age if they don't have a capsular contracture and if your tissues have retained good tone and do not need a lift. Also, the better shape you keep yourself in, the better your implants will match your well cared for body.
