They say that 40 is the new 30, and in many ways it’s true. Some characteristics of being in your 40s make this decade an ideal time for breast augmentation for many women. Whether you’re getting your first breast augmentation in your fourth decade or updating a breast augmentation from your college years, there are some important factors to take into consideration.
Effects of Pregnancy
Nowadays, it’s becoming more and more common for women to focus on their careers in their 20s, marriage in their 30s and starting their families in their 40s. While the demands of motherhood may be the same at any age, the body responds differently to pregnancy in your 40s than it would when you were younger. Breast augmentation can help improve the size and shape of your breasts if pregnancy and nursing leave them looking deflated.
Your 40s is likely a time when you’re concerned with how you can age gracefully, and breast augmentation is one of the most common ways to revamp your figure. As you’re now nearing middle age, you may wish to embrace your years while still maintaining the curves that made you feel sexy and feminine when you were younger. Your breast augmentation can be customized to provide a subtle boost to your figure or a more dramatic bust line, depending on your preferences.
Consider a Breast Lift
For many women in their 40s, combining a breast lift with implants offers optimal results. A breast lift removes excess skin, repositions the nipples and elevates breast placement. The two procedures can be performed simultaneously and complement each other nicely, adding volume to the breasts while maintaining a youthful breast position.
