All women experience body changes as they age. Some seem to have genetics on their side, and while that may be true, no one can completely avoid the effects of their years. But getting older doesn’t have to mean accepting those things you dislike about your appearance. Getting older can mean taking matters into your own hands and creating that confidence you want. If your breasts are smaller or flatter than you’d like, or even asymmetrical, breast augmentation

is the best way to address those issues. Breast surgery works well for adult women of all ages. It’s never too late to feel more beautiful and feminine with help from a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. David Creech.

Improving Confidence with Implants Later in Life

Things like wine, jeans, and 401(k)s get better with time. Unfortunately, our bodies usually do not. As women age, gravity starts to take its toll and breasts can appear deflated and small. That youthful volume and perkiness tends to fade as the childbearing years pass. Gaining more confidence is something we expect as we get older, but it can be difficult to do when feeling insecure about the way you look. Breast augmentation is a great option for women of any age, but for women past their thirties, if can offer a youthful femininity and make confidence soar.

Further Considerations Including Breast Augmentation Recovery

Women who are more mature in age are often mature in their decision making. Having life experience and self-assurance gives them the perspective they need to weigh the benefits of breast surgery. Their reasons for getting breast implants and their expectations for the outcome are different than those of younger women. It is important for women over 40 to take into consideration the following factors when planning for breast augmentation:

  • Overall health – Every breast augmentation patient needs to be in good general health to be considered a good candidate for the procedure. Healthy eating habits and regular exercise are key, but if you have certain health issues, the surgery may not be right for you.
  • The condition of your skin – As the skin ages it can stretch, sag, and lose elasticity. The placement of an implant could make these problems worse. Your doctor may recommend a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation to address these issues.
  • Breast Augmentation RecoveryIf you are in good health, your body should be able to handle recovery well. Taking time off work and family responsibilities is often easier to do as you get older, so getting the rest you need after breast surgery can (and should) be a priority.
  • Mammograms – Breast cancer screenings are important and your breast implants should not interfere with them. An implant in good condition should not rupture during the screening and implants that are placed under the muscle help to improve the visibility of the breast glands.

Leave Compromise Behind With IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants

IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants are the latest in implant technology available on the breast implant market. They are filled with saline (sterile saltwater solution), and have an internal structure that gives them a beautiful look and feel. Women who choose the IDEAL IMPLANT no longer have to compromise between feelings of security or beauty; now they can enjoy the peace of mind of saline implants along with the natural-looking beauty of silicone gel implants.

Although it is saline-filled, the IDEAL IMPLANT will not ripple or wrinkle because movement of the saline inside the implant is controlled by separate chambers. These chambers also benefit women because if there happened to be leakage, only the outer layer of the implant would be affected, so the breast would not look completely deflated. Dr. Creech says,

“The bottom line with choosing an implant is – what are the pros and cons? What I emphasize is the downside with silicone implants is their silent rupture. The upside with the IDEAL IMPLANT is there’s no silent rupture. The surgery to replace an IDEAL IMPLANT is more predictable if it leaks, versus if the silicone leaks. To me that’s a big advantage from a surgical standpoint to have a good result.”

Make Silent Rupture a Thing of the Past

The IDEAL IMPLANT doesn’t just look and feel great. It has zero risk of silent rupture, unlike silicone gel implants. You will never need an MRI to see if your implant is leaking – you can tell by simply looking in the mirror. And, there is no reason to worry about whether your implants need to be replaced in the future – they can stay in indefinitely unless an issue arises. Dr. Creech has noticed the popularity of the IDEAL IMPLANT with his breast augmentation patients. He says,

“There are some patients that come in and want silicone gel breast implants. Once I show them the IDEAL IMPLANT advantages and the disadvantages of silicone, many of them are converting over to the IDEAL IMPLANT. I think that’s a great choice because all they need is a mirror to figure out if the implant is broken.”
