What’s the Best Age for a Breast Lift?

What’s the Best Age for a Breast Lift?

If you’re concerned about the appearance of your drooping breasts, a breast lift might be the solution for you. This popular surgery repositions your breasts, pulling them up to give them a tighter, perkier appearance — and the number of people having this surgery has increased by 70% over the past two decades. 

At Carl N. Williams Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada, our providers help patients look their best at every age. If you’re considering a breast lift, you may be wondering if this is the best time in your life to get one. Here, you can find out more about breast lifts and the best age for this procedure. 

Reasons to consider a breast lift 

There are many reasons to get a breast lift, but most relate to age or sagging (ptosis). Common reasons that people with breasts consider a lift include wanting to: 

Some breasts also naturally droop or sag. Getting breast lift surgery addresses all of these issues. It may also help with minor back pain related to the ptosis of large breasts. 

The best age for a breast lift

Surprisingly, your age isn’t the most important factor when it comes to determining whether or not you’re a suitable candidate for a breast lift. Rather, your overall health is most significant.

Medical conditions such as a clotting disorder or a condition that negatively affects your ability to heal may have an impact on whether you’re a good candidate for this surgery, regardless of your age. 

Overall, there’s no single best age for a breast lift. Once you’re 18 years old, breasts are fully developed, so young women can consider breast lift surgery. Patients in their 50s to 70s with good overall health experience great results with breast lift surgery. Most women wait until their 40s or after they’ve had children to undergo a breast lift. 

Dr. Williams asks you questions about your medical history and health and examines your breast tissue to determine whether you’re a good candidate for a breast lift. During the surgery, Dr. Williams expertly removes excess skin and reworks the contour of your breasts to enhance fullness and firmness. 

We customize the procedure to your needs, depending on how much sagging you have, your breast volume, and skin quality. After the surgery, your breasts don’t change in cup size but are repositioned higher on your chest to be more youthful-looking and perky. 

If you’d like to know more about breast lifts and whether this procedure is right for you, set up a consultation with Carl N. Williams Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery. Give us a call at 702-703-6929 or request an appointment online today.
