5 Reasons Why Women Over 40 Choose Breast Augmentation

Happy Woman Over 40 Who Chose to Get a Breast Augmentation at Kirby Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth

Are you 39+ a few years and considering breast implants? At my Fort Worth plastic surgery practice, we regularly see women of all ages to discuss breast augmentation. Patients love the life-enhancing confidence having more feminine curves can bring to their 40s, 50s, and beyond.

Understanding other women’s motivation for choosing breast augmentation is a helpful way to determine if you, too, are ready for the procedure. Below, we outline a few unique reasons that women in their fabulous 40s give for choosing breast augmentation. Let us know if any (or all) of these resonate with you!

1. Life events inspire women to reshape their figure

It is normal to experience a perspective-changing life event in your 40s. Changes in your close relationships or career are common; weight changes may also inspire you to reshape your figure. For many women, breast augmentation brings newfound confidence as they enter an exciting new chapter of life.

2. Many women age 40+ are done having children

Having completed a family, many women feel ready to reclaim their figure via a mommy makeover, which may include breast augmentation combined with a breast lift. When it comes to maintaining your results, you will be at an advantage if you have no plans for future pregnancies!

3. Women over 40 are ready to do something for themselves

Perhaps you desired breast augmentation throughout your 20s and 30s, but never had the time or available budget for the procedure. Your 40s are an ideal time to make changes you may have thought about for years. Patients aged 40-54 account for the majority of cosmetic procedures each year.

4. Women find their breasts need a boost

Breast volume loss and sagging are closely associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight changes, and aging, and affect most women after age 40. A breast augmentation restores volume; adding a breast lift will also tighten sagging tissues and position the breasts higher on the chest to create a more youthful, full bust. If a breast lift is part of your procedure, the nipple and surrounding areola can be reshaped and/or resized to fit your desired appearance.

5. Women are embracing a realistic weight

Many of us tend to gain a little weight each year, and this gradual accumulation can start to catch up with us by the time we reach our 40s. Breast augmentation can balance your upper body proportions with your hips and other features, allowing you to maintain a realistic weight while having confidence in your overall shape.
