Age - Am I too old for Breast Augmentation?
For all you ladies who are in your 40's and 50's (or older!) and think you're too old for a Breast Augmentation....
I'm 4 months post-op now, having undergone my BA in September. I am 47 years old and had seriously questioned my motives and sanity before finally committing to the surgery. I have always been athletic, slim, petite and youthful both in appearance and attitude. But... as gravity (and motherhood) took its toll, my once-perky little 34 A breasts began to sag and deflate. How I hated looking in the mirror! My stomach is flat, my butt is curvaceous, my body is toned... but there wasn't a damned thing I could do about my breasts. Except.... wait a minute! I could do something about my breasts!!!
And I decided to go for it. I got lovely, perky little 34 B breasts from my PIPs, 235cc, smooth saline unders. And I am SO happy I did it. For any woman trying to decide whether or not she is TOO old for Breast Augmentation surgery... consider the fact that we're all living well into our 70's and 80's now... if you get the surgery in your 40's or 50's... think of how many years you still have to enjoy your body! (And the hubby certainly doesn't mind either!) GO FOR IT!

Another middle-aged old bat here...LOL! I had mine at age 47 (see Visitor Photo #75), and I feel great! Don't let "age" stand in the way - it's just a number. I see a much younger, happier and shaplier person posessing a great deal of pride looking back at me from the mirror. Even my wardrobe has gotten "younger"!
I am 48, soon to be 49, had my 2nd b/a last March, getting ready for a possible redo in February to go to silicone. I don't think it is ever too late, if it is something you want and know you will benefit from. It can truly change your outlook on life, give you confidence, and make shopping for clothes and lingerie a whole new world. I know it has done all of that for me - and more! It's never too late to feel more of a woman than you ever have in your life.
I had my BA days before my 45th b-day. I have wanted to do this since I was about 30. The results are great so far and my PS doesn't foresee any future problems. My only regret is that I waited soooooo long!!
