have I left it too late to have a breast enlargement?As a general rule, age is not kind to a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breast is not supported in a high, pert position on the chest but tends to sag instead. Nipples point to the floor and volume is lost. Breast enlargement surgery can solve these problems, but as an older woman, many wonder: have they left it too late? Mr Tariq Ahmad sees women of all ages in his Cambridge breast augmentation clinic; one question often asked by his older patients is: ‘aren’t breast augmentations really for young women?’ Feeling they should have taken action long ago, they wonder if they now just need to live with what they have.

What makes a good candidate for breast enlargement?

Every woman has a right to feel happy in her own skin, whatever her age – and women of all ages have breast enlargement. If you are in good health, you understand the risks involved, you have realistic expectations and if you still have a certain degree of stretch in your skin, you are likely to be a suitable candidate for surgery. During your Cambridge breast enlargement consultation, Mr Ahmad will take your medical history and conduct a physical examination, assessing both your frame and your skin condition. He will then advise you on the best course of action to achieve your goals.

Will the results look natural?

It is more often of concern to Mr Ahmad’s older female patients that it not look like they have ‘had work done’. Mr Ahmad’s approach to all cosmetic surgery is that the results look beautiful and natural, and work in harmony with the body’s frame and features. As a surgeon with many years’ experience, he has both surgical expertise as well as an artistic eye which enables him to produce breast enlargement results that look very much the best part of you.
