You should obtain medical clearance from your primary care physician that you 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! Best wishes!
Too old for breast reduction/lift?
Pablo Prichard, MD
As long as you are in good health, 66 is not too old for a breast lift or any cosmetic surgery. If your breasts are 'heavy', you may even want to consider a breast reduction, which can be a covered procedure under the ministry of health for Canadians.

Breast Lift and Age
Dear Ms. Elias,
Your general health is more significant than your actual age. You can have a routine physical exam with your family physician, and discuss your desired goals with a board certified plastic surgeon. He/She will also review your breast exam, skin quality, etc and its impact on surgical outcome. I would also recommend that you make sure you are up-to-date with your mammogram before having surgery. Warm regards,

Age and surgery
You are not too old for most cosmetic surgery as long as you are healthy and your request is reasonable.
Surgery at any age
Age is not a limiting factor for breast lifting surgery, although good health is. For patient’s 50 years old and above, a medical clearance, mammogram, and EKG is required prior to surgery. I ask that medical clearance be obtained from your primary physician. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine whether you are a good candidate for breast lifting surgery.
