2 Minute Read: 

Designing Your Breasts 

Breast surgeries are appropriate at any age, from your 20s to your 60s. Younger women are likely more interested in increasing or decreasing the size of their breasts. In contrast, older women will probably have to contend with age-related and pregnancy-related laxity as an added concern. 

Keep reading for a complete guide on how to design your breasts based on your age.

Designing Your Breasts When You Are Younger (The 20s-30s)

When you’re younger, the only issue you’re likely dealing with is the size of your breasts. You might find that your breasts are too small, so you are considering breast augmentation. A breast augmentation can give your breasts the size and contour to make you feel confident and womanly.

On the other hand, some young women choose to get a breast reduction. If your breasts are too large for your frame, it can cause self-esteem issues, unwanted attention, and even back pain.

Designing Your Breasts When You Are Older (The 40s-60s)

As you age, your body changes, and you may have new issues with your breasts. If you go through one (or several) pregnancies, the rapid weight gain/loss and breastfeeding can drastically change your breasts.

Additionally, as we get older, many of us struggle with our weight as our metabolism naturally slows down. Significant weight gain, weight loss, or fluctuations in your weight can cause your skin to lose elasticity.

Lastly, as we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and the breasts start to sag. This is why older women more commonly opt for a breast lift to bring their breasts back up to their formerly perky position.

A combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift is a popular choice for older women. This combination will ultimately allow you to redefine the shape and height of their breasts.
