What is the right age for Breast Augmentation in New Jersey?

Breast Augmentation Lift

The question of age-appropriate breast augmentation in New Jersey has been a hot topic for many years. As this cosmetic procedure rises in popularity around the world, it becomes more accepted by people from all walks of life and all ages. Often, potential patients will ask either, “Am I too young to have a breast augmentation surgery?” or, “Am I too old?” Many would be surprised by the wide range of acceptable ages, but there are a few key guidelines.

When Are You Just Too Old For Breast Augmentation In New Jersey?

First of all, there is no magic number,and advanced age is less of an issue than many people think. Instead, plastic surgeons look for signs that a person may have difficulty healing or not handle the effects of general anesthetic well. It’s possible for someone of any age to have health factors that contra indicate cosmetic surgery. With advanced years, medical conditions become more common for some. When considering breast augmentation in your 50’s 60’s or even 70’s, expect to have lab work completed and a physical assessment of heart function or other factors. Medications that many people take can interfere with surgery or recovery, so you’ll need detailed pre-operative planning to make sure you’re all clear. It’s not uncommon for women to wait until they’ve fully raised their children and taken care of many other big, life commitments before turning attention to things that will help them feel better about themselves.

On the plus side, many older people are realistic and well-informed about the process. They know theirbodies well and are quite confident in their decision once they’ve made it. If you’re in an older than average age group when you get around to body enhancements, you’re not alone. We recommend that you schedule more than one consultation with board certified plastic surgeons to discuss your options.

How Young Is Too Young?

Breast augmentation surgeons have an obligation, like all reputable and well-trained doctors, to carefully assess a patient’s suitability on a few levels. They can use their discretion, and most will ensure a patient has stopped growing and is fully capable of making independent, adult decisions. In most cases, this will mean that they are 18+ and some breast implant manufacturers will stipulate that their fully warranty does not cover use in individuals under the age of 22. The key questions for a surgeon to ask are: is this person aware of the health risks and long-termconsiderations for breast surgery? Are they mentally and emotionally stable and mature? Do they have realistic expectations? Will they follow instructions for a safe and optimal recovery?

Breast augmentation is permanent and carries risks inherent to any surgical procedure, so it’s never a decision to be taken lightly or without the patient themselves giving full informed consent.
