Breast Augmentation for Older Women

Cosmetic Surgery in St. Louis, Missouri

Some people may consider St. Louis breast augmentation more of a young person’s procedure. The truth is that many women in their 40s, 50s and beyond are seeking breast augmentation to restore the youthfulness of their breasts. Age, pregnancy, and weight loss all take their toll on the breasts causing the breasts to lose volume and begin to sag. Older women who have focused much of their time and energy on their families are now at a point in their lives when they can begin to give themselves more attention.  These women are generally interested in breast augmentation to regain a natural, more contoured appearance rather than to achieve overly large, noticeable breasts.

Many women elect to improve their breasts with breast augmentation surgery when they are finished bearing children. These women are typically older than the stereotypical woman who opts for breast surgery in Missouri. These women are married with children and would like to increase their confidence by regaining their pre-pregnancy, youthful breasts.

Reasons Older Women Choose to Have Breast Augmentation

Women in their late 20s and 30s who have had children notice that their breasts have changed after pregnancy and breast-feeding. These women do not necessarily want to significantly increase the size of their breasts, but want to restore the size and shape of their breasts.

Women in their 40s and older notice that their breasts begin to lose volume and start to sag. These women wish to restore their breasts by eliminating the sagging and adding the volume to their breasts that they may have lost with age. In some cases, these women will want to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift. Breast augmentation will add volume to the breasts and a breast lift will help to eliminate sagging.

The increase in older women electing to have breast augmentation in St. Louis is due in part to the popularity of the mommy makeover. A mommy makeover combines several cosmetic surgery procedures to give women shapelier, more youthful contours. The mommy makeover typically will include a combination of the following cosmetic surgery procedures:
