Breast Augmentation Series: What You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation in Your 30s

You’ve matured, you know what you want and are ready to make important decisions which affect your life. If you’re in your 30s and are contemplating breast augmentation, this post is for you.

The most popular aesthetic surgical procedure for women in their 30s is breast augmentation. It accounts for 37% of all cosmetic surgeries done in Canada and the United States. In 2015, more than 102,000 women in their 30s decided to have the procedure.

Why Have Breast Augmentation in Your 30s?

There are several motives for women in their 30s to choose breast augmentation. I have consulted with many women in their 30s who desire this procedure and these are their top reasons:

  • To increase breast size or correct asymmetry
  • To reverse changes brought about by pregnancy or weight loss
  • To improve self-confidence
  • To look and feel younger

What to Consider for Breast Augmentation Patients in their 30s

Performed by the right surgeon, breast augmentation is safer and more effective than ever before. More women get breast augmentation in their 30s than in any other age group. Here are some important considerations to ensure optimal results:

  • You may require a lift – if nursing and pregnancy-related weight gain and loss have led to sagging, a breast lift may be needed to raise the nipple and breast to a more youthful position. This can be done with or without implants.
  • It is safe to go through pregnancy and delivery after breast augmentation – Even though pregnancy may change your breasts, there is no risk to you or your baby if you have breast implants.
  • Have You Thought About a Mommy Makeover? – If you’re done with childbearing and you have noticed changes to your abdomen, you may want to consider a mommy makeover. This procedure includes treatment of both the breasts and tummy.
  • Are you healthy? – Women in their 30s are generally in good health and are in ideal shape for breast augmentation. Your health history and physical examination will allow us to assess risks and choose wisely. If you smoke – stop. Smoking can cause complications during and after surgery.
