What You Should Know About Breast Implants After 40

With childbearing behind them, more women over 40 are choosing to have breast augmentations.

Cleveland Clinic plastic surgeon Andera Moreira, MD says older women typically voice concerns about age-related changes to breast appearance, including loss of volume and sagging skin.

But concerns about mammograms after a breast augmentation may prohibit some women from moving forward with the procedure. Another area of concern is excess skin on the breast due to childbirth or weight loss, which may need to be addressed with a breast lift along with an implant.
