Breast Augmentation in your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

Introduction to Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures. Women of all ages experience breast augmentation benefits, like renewed confidence, restored breast tissue, and a curvy figure. There is no right or wrong age to consider undergoing this procedure. However, knowing how breast implants respond to different ages is important. Ultimately, no matter what age you are, choosing to get breast implants is completely up to you, so it’s important to be informed of the different outcomes different ages experience.  

Implants In Your 20s

Many young women are unhappy with their breasts due to various reasons. Although waiting until you are over 18 is recommended, as your body is done developing by then. Asymmetrical breasts or small breasts are some causes for young women to want breast implants.

The main benefit of having breast augmentation surgery in your 20s is recovery. Since your body is young and able to heal quickly, the recovery process will be faster and easier.

Some cons of undergoing breast augmentation at a young age have to have future implant replacements, as breast implants do not last forever. It’s common for women to have implant replacement around the ten-year mark, but some women can go longer. Another thing to consider is future pregnancy. If you plan on breastfeeding, your surgeon must use surgical

all techniques that do not interfere with breastfeeding abilities.

It’s also important to remember that undergoing breast augmentation is a permanent decision, so talk to your cosmetic surgeon about your options.

Implants In Your 30s

Choosing to get breast implants in your 30s is the most common and ideal time. By the time you are in your 30s, you typically have a better understanding of exactly what you want and can get ahead of changing breasts due to age. Breasts and aging can affect the density and tissue, causing your breasts to begin to sag.

Knowing your body is important to deciding whether breast augmentation is right for you. If you already have children and do not plan on breastfeeding, this could be an ideal time for breast implants. However, many women have not had children and plan on having them in the future. It’s best to wait until after pregnancy for breast implants, but your surgeon can use certain techniques to preserve breastfeeding abilities.  

 Breast augmentation is most commonly performed on women in their 30s. Typically, women are in the best financial standing to afford the surgery and are in good health, making recovery much easier than when they are older.

Implants In Your 40s

In your 40s, age starts to have a glaring impact on your breast tissue. Breast density lowers, and fatty tissue begins to weigh the natural height of your breast tissue down. Many women see the benefits of breast augmentation during this time in their lives. Additionally, most women are past the era of childbearing and do not need to worry about the impact of breast implants on pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Many women in their 40s undergo breast augmentation as a part of a mommy makeover procedure. Because they have had children and their bodies have faced permanent changes, a mommy makeover can greatly impact their mental and physical lives. If you want other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or liposuction, adding a breast augmentation can change your entire physique.

Implants In Your 50s

Most women think their 50s are too old to undergo breast augmentation surgery, but that’s not the case. Today, more and more women in their 50s are wanting breast implants. As long as your health is good and you don’t smoke, you can receive breast implants. However, there are more stipulations and recovery effects that you should be aware of.

First, it is recommended that you have a mammogram before undergoing breast augmentation surgery. Because your breast structure changes drastically as you age, a mammogram will give your surgeon a clearer picture of that structure. It also provides insight into any possible complications or risks before the procedure.

Second, most women who want breast implants do so because they’re experiencing changing breasts. It is often recommended to undergo a breast lift along with breast augmentation. When your breasts begin to sag and lose elasticity due to age, implants can worsen the sagging. A breast lift negates this effect, and the two can be performed together.  

The final thing that is important for women in their 50s to remember is that the recovery process might be a bit harder and longer. Your body does not bounce back as easily as someone in their 20s, and any underlying health conditions can impact the healing process.


Overall, there is no right age or wrong age to undergo plastic surgery. As long as you are healthy and over 18, your cosmetic surgeon can help guide you through your breast augmentation and give you the best insights to help you achieve your perfect figure.
