What is the Best Age for a Breast Lift?


Breast lift surgery improves the appearance of the breasts by removing droopy skin and firming the breast mound. The procedure gives a perkier and more vibrant look to the chest and can even improve the contours of the entire upper body.

Things that can cause breast tissue to sag include weight fluctuations, pregnancy and nursing, and a loss of elasticity due to the simple process of aging. Gravity, lifestyle choices, and genetics can also play a role in breast ptosis.

Many breast lift patients elect to wait until they have finished having children to undergo the procedure. As was recently highlighted by Kirstin Cavallari on her Instagram, having a breast lift after breastfeeding (three children, in Ms. Cavallari’s case) can produce a natural-looking and incredibly appealing look to the chest. However, not all women choose to become mothers, making this particular gauge sometimes irrelevant.

You Don’t Have to be a Mom to Want a Breast Lift

There is no minimum age requirement for adult women to undergo a breast lift. The best age for you to consider the procedure is whatever age you happen to be when you decide you’d like firmer breasts. If a breast lift seems appealing in your 30s, great. In your 40s? Yes. In your 50s and beyond? Absolutely. There is no upper age limit for the procedure.

The best way to learn if a breast lift can help you reach your goals is through a one-on-one consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. Dr. Andrea Doyle, a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience, welcomes the opportunity to meet with you, assess your frame, and help you decide if now is the best time for you to undergo a breast lift procedure.
