I am 65 years old. Had open heart surgery in Nov 2015. Am I a candidate for breast lift and some reduction?

Also, please make sure you are seeking consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons who preferably work with board-certified anesthesiologists in fully accredited surgery facilities. I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.

I don't blame you for not wanting to post photos. It seems standards of personal privacy are gone today. In any case you may have a breast reduction which lifts you as well, it's typically a 3 hour procedure under general or IV sedation. A medical clearance by your cardiologist or internist is necessary prior to surgery to ensure that your medical condition is stable for the surgery. I encourage you to look into it as most women are very happy with the results of this operation.
