Thank you for your question! You are never to old for cosmetic surgery. If you are healthy and don't have any serious medical problems then you should be fine. Seek a board certified plastic surgeon and have a consultation with him. Best of luck!

Hello! Thank you for your question! Age alone is not a contraindication
to a surgical procedure. There are a few medical
comorbidities that contribute to a higher risk during any surgical
procedure including infections, wound complications, delayed wound
healing, bleeding, anesthetic risks, etc. Factors such as diabetes,
hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart problems, lung problems,
etc are more common in the elderly. However, if you are healthy, or
these conditions are well-controlled, you would certainly still be a
candidate for a surgical procedure. If your complaints or desires are
great enough to consider the surgical option, I would seek a
consultation with a plastic surgeon to discuss your complaints and go
over the options as well as risks and benefits of the procedure.
should obtain medical clearance from your primary care physician that
are at an acceptable risk for undergoing a surgical procedure. For
elective or aesthetic procedures, your surgeon may want to get you to a
reasonable health status prior to consideration for a procedure.
Discuss all of
your medical comorbidities and medication with your surgeon prior and
discuss these risks. Also, discuss this with your anesthesiologist as
proper monitoring and medications will be watched closely. This
procedure should still be very safe for you and hope for an
uncomplicated course with an excellent result! Hope that this helps!
As long as you are healthy, you are never too old to have a breast augmentation! We all care about our appearance and 52 is not too old to have a procedure that will help you feel better about yourself! In fact, you appear to be a great candidate! There will most likely be a few tests to take and a mammogram will be needed but definitely go see a board certified plastic surgeon to go over your expectations and discuss your options that will give you optimal results. I have done breast augmentations on women much older than you. Best of luck! ac
Age is not a contra-indication to implants, however,
I believe you need a simultaneous lift. I
recommend a new technique called Breast Augmentation with Mini Ultimate Breast
LiftTM. Using only a
circumareola incision it is possible to reshape your breast tissue creating
upper pole fullness, elevate them higher on the chest wall and more medial to
increase your cleavage. Through the same
incision, implants can be placed.
Aligning the areola, breast tissue and implant over the bony prominence
of the chest wall maximizes anterior projection with a minimal size
implant. Small round textured silicone
gel implants placed retro-pectoral look and feel more natural, are more stable,
less likely to ripple or have complications needing revision. Implant profile is irrelevant in
retro-pectoral position since the muscle compresses it. This technique can restore the beauty of your
breasts to it’s pre-pregnancy appearance.

Thank you for your question and photos. You appear to be a very good candidate for breast augmentation. As long as you are healthy, your age should not be a deterrent to this procedure. Best wishes.
Thank you for the picture.
I don't believe that age has to do with anything when making you feel better by having larger breast. This will give you a great looking result, I suggest 375- 400 cc's high profile.
Hello and thank you for your question.
Good news! Not only are you not too old, but from the bit I can see in your picture, you look like you'd have a great result!
I recommend seeking a board certified PS and having a consultation to have your questions more thoroughly answered after a full history and physical examination is performed.
Best of luck to you.
You appear to be a very good candidate!!! Best to seek IN PERSOB consultations from only boarded PSs in your area..
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation is someone who desires to restore their breast size to what they were prior to child birth. It is very important to be in good health, to have good skin tone, and not be a smoker. Age is not a limiting factor.
There is no age criteria for breast augmentation as long as your healthy.If any medical problems they should be well controlled prior to the augmenation.
