Breast Augmentation After 40

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


A Maryland woman contemplates breast augmentation in her 40sBreast augmentation in your late 30s and early 40s is an ideal time to put yourself first. You’ve gone through pregnancy and are done having children, but the aftermath of being pregnant and breastfeeding has left you feeling insecure with your figure and breasts. The best way to know if breast augmentation is right for you is by scheduling a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Chiaramonte in Maryland.

Breast augmentation safety is our priority at Bella Cosmetic Surgery, and we want all of your questions to be answered. One question women usually have is about mammograms. You might be concerned that breast implants will impede on the mammogram specialist’s ability to see through breast tissue and detect abnormalities or cancer, but that’s not the case. The specialist will be able to adjust the machine and accommodate for the implants by snapping more images.

If mammograms are one of your worries, you can request for a subpectoral placement, which is done by inserting the saline or silicone implants behind your breast gland and chest muscle. Most women prefer a subglandular placement (under the breast gland but over the chest muscle). As long as the specialist adjusts the images for the implant you shouldn’t run into any issues during a mammogram.

Your 40s are the best time to reinvent yourself. The kids are around the age of independence, which means you get to spend more time pampering yourself and less time worrying. If you are considering breast augmentation in Maryland, please contact Bella Cosmetic Surgery today online or at (301) 567-6767 to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Chiaramonte. Dr. Chiaramonte welcomes patients from Washington DC and Virginia, including Alexandria and Fairfax.
