Women over 50

I am interested in finding any women over 50 who had or are having a first time BA and have lived all these years almost flat chested. Have you given serious consideration to having a BA since you were very young or not until you were older? I first gave it consideration and had a consult at the age of 45 but was not ready at that time. Then 6 weeks ago the idea came up again and now I am 5 days post op!

Wow! I guess I am the only flat chested woman over 50 that had a first time BA. All the rest of you women- consider yourselves lucky you didn't wait so long to have your done! It actaully does make me kind of sad that I waited so long. My husband did say to me, "I think the only thing you will regret is that you didn't have it done sooner." I am just thankful that I did finally have it done at all. Why did I wait until I was 53?

I would have replied if the thread was for over 40. And, yes, I totally wish I had done this sooner. So many things I wish I had done sooner, but this is way high on the list.

I am 43, and I wish I'd done it about 10 yrs ago (after I finished breast-feeding my last child).

When I first started considering it, I thought I was "too old." But in doing research, I found that many women over 40 - and over 50 - are getting BAs.

So while I'm right there with you on wishing I'd done it sooner (among other things), I'm glad I DID eventually get it done!! Better late than never!!

NOt quite there but almost. I was 48 when I got mine last year. Always wanted to and was completely flat. Hubby always was supportive and told me I should do it if I wanted. I always found a reason not too, usually had to do with home repairs, remodels and then spoiling the son. Last year I did a google search to see how common it was in women my age and was surprised. That day I made appointment for consult and booked surgery for the following month. Love them even with some complications and revision and so wish I would have done it at 25.

I still can't believe there is not a single woman on this forum that is over 50. I guess I am a real rarity! Oh well! Better late to the party than not to show up at all! I don't have any grandchildren but I could be the boob grandam or the mother of all boobs! At least I can recieve an invitation if there was sucha party! We would all show up topless (women only, of course) and we would all feel completly unashamed because most of us have already seen each other braless anyway! It would be completely unporographic or exhibtionist.

I'll turn 50 less than a month after I have my BA, so I think I'm close enough.
It's some thing I would have liked to have when they first became popular, though as far as the cost, just a dream for me.
Then silicone's were banned and I didn't give it a thought for many more years.
Now that they have been approved and improved, I am finally in a position to afford it, and my fairly new husband {we'll be married a year June 10th}, is very supportive of me, I'm finally ready for the breasts I've always wanted.

My mom had a BA and lift in her 50's. That's what motivated me to get over my misconceptions about being "that kind" of woman and just go for what I wanted.

Age is truly just a number, and good for you if it makes you happy!
