Breast lift for 70 year old; is it possible to have a natural looking breast lift and is it safe?

Im a healthy young looking active 70 year old who has lost some weight and would like to have my breasts lifted - (not enlarged). Can travel to Asia to keep costs down.

I appreciate your question.

I perform a liposuction breast lift that removes tissue from the areas you don't want such as near the armpit and the lower portion hanging near your stomach. Once I use this to shape the breast I then remove the skin to tighten the breast and create a better shape with nice cleavage. Since I perform this less invasively the recovery time is faster. The size would depend on the proportion with your body versus going for a cup size.

It takes 6 weeks to heal and I wait 12 months before any scar revision.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.  Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery.


Best of luck!

Certainly is possible

It certainly is possible and safe to have a breast lift at the age of 70 and the results, depending on your tissues and the surgical skin of the practitioner, can be very good.  Physiologic age is much more important than chronological age as there are many who are 70 and are healthier than people who are younger than 60.

Breast lift for 70 year old

Your age is not a limiting factor for breast lifting surgery, although good health is. I would ask that medical clearance be obtained from your primary physician. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to determine whether you are a good candidate for breast lifting surgery. I would avoid "travel to Asia". Best wishes.

Breast lift in 70

Providing that you are in a good helth breast lift is very safe, predictable, painless and lifestyle changing surgery. The only problem I have with your plan is doing it out of the country because of decreased costs? Beside difficulties with travel and prolonged stay, what happens if you develop complications and/or if you are not happy with result? Whom are you going to see? Revision surgery may cost your more then original surgery. 

Your should start with a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon with  good reputation in breast surgery to discuss your options. Good luck.
