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

Are you in your 30s and thinking about breast augmentation? Lucky for you, your 30s is an optimal time for breast enhancement; you’re more confident, you’ve probably settled into a career, and you know yourself more than ever. If you’re curious about what having breast augmentation in your 30s will entail, check out our guide on getting breast augmentation in your 30s.

The Benefits of Breast Augmentation

In addition to being one of the most customizable procedures in the plastic surgery industry, breast augmentation happens to be the top cosmetic procedure in the world—and for good reason. Breast augmentation is a great way to remake your figure and give yourself a curvier, more alluring silhouette. To be more specific, breast augmentation can:

  • Enhance breast volume
  • Enhance your cleavage
  • Shape the breasts
  • Create fuller, firmer breasts

Optimal Breast Augmentation

One of the main issues with getting breast augmentation in your 20s is that your breasts might still be growing and maturing; once you’re in your 30s, however, that risk is almost nonexistent. Unless you have some major life changes-like pregnancy-getting a breast augmentation in your 30s is a great way to ensure your breast augmentation results will stand the tests of time.

Breast Feeding and Pregnancy

If you’re thinking about having children in the future, then it’s important to consider potential issues like how your breasts might change because of pregnancy or how breast implants might interfere with breast feeding. Since our breasts naturally change shape and size during pregnancy, it’s possible that your breast augmentation results might be affected. And while it’s not impossible to breastfeed after having breast implants, the amount of milk you produce might be compromised. If having more kids is a possibility in the future, you should make sure to discuss it with your surgeon.

Who You Are

Planning your breast augmentation is more than finding out what will look best on you—in fact, your implants should also fit your lifestyle and personality. Thankfully, a lot of women hit their stride in their 30s; women are a lot more self-assured at that time in their lives, and many of them have settled into lifelong careers and hobbies. By your 30s, you already know whether you’re someone who loves being active or someone who doesn’t mind a dramatic physical change, making it the perfect time to choose the kind of implants that will work best with your life.

Now that you know a little bit more about what it means to get breast augmentation in your 30s, let our surgeons educate you on the rest. Contact Aesthetx now, for a consultation.

ASAPS Meeting Recap: Aesthetx

Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz recently attended the ASAPS meeting in sunny San Diego, and as always, both doctors enjoyed catching up with colleagues, checking out the newest technologies, and having some top-secret meetings about yet-to-be-revealed industry developments.

Dr. Zeidler Featured on Facebook Live for miraDry

Aesthetx is one of the only practices to offer miraDry in Silicon Valley, and it’s wildly popular with patients. Aesthetx patients love permanently getting rid of underarm sweat, eliminating odor without wearing deodorant, and most importantly, the boost in body confidence. While at ASAPS, Dr. Zeidler demonstrated how quick and easy the miraDry procedure is on Facebook Live.

Fat Transfer, Renuva, and More

Dr. Zeidler also met with several companies with new technologies in development, including new ways to do fat transfer to the face and hands, without the need for the operating room and general anesthesia, making it easier and more attainable for more patients (and most likely more affordable). There is also a new product called Renuva that Dr. Zeidler will be starting a clinical trial for some time in 2018. It is fat in a syringe that can be used for filling small dents – great for cellulite and dimples created by surgery. The future studies will be looking at this product as a permanent alternative to HA fillers in the face.

Dr. Zeidler met with the CEOs of both Sientra and Allergan breast implant companies to see where the companies are going and how they plan to refine their products over the next several years. Dr. Zeidler is looking forward to the collaborations both companies are planning with Aesthetx, including supporting Dr. Z’s annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness day (BRA Day).

Dr. Z and Sientra CEO, Jeff Nugent, agreeing on the amazing new look of Biocorneum and their recent acquisition of SSP products for breast reconstruction.

Dr. Zeidler loved how down to earth Allergan CEO Brent Saunders was. He even followed us on Instagram and regularly “likes” our posts. Dr. Zeidler and Dr. Berkowitz are both excited about the incredible breadth of technologies Allergan is consolidating into programs that will give patients rewards – from BOTOX®, to fillers, to CoolSculpting, to breast implants. Sientra has some exciting new developments in their US manufacturing plant. Dr. Zeidler is their current Medical Director for their Clinical Trials and is currently working on writing their clinical outcomes paper on their 10 year breast implant study data. She looks forward to joining their Medical Advisory Board, and enjoys collaborating with their CEO Jef Nugent on the company’s plans for expansion.

Dr. Zeidler REALLY was excited about the first clinical trial meeting for the new breast implant company Motiva from Costa Rica. These implants have some exciting new features, including a special blue membrane to detect rupture, an implanted chip to provide more information about the implant size and history, and special shells and micro textures and super silicones, which may have some unique benefits to patients. The “ergonomic” breast implant is one that Dr. Zeidler has her eyes set on as it could potentially offer all the benefits of an anatomically-shaped implant, without the risks. The trial will provide more data on these special features.

The Motiva meeting was hosted at the San Diego Zoo, where Dr. Z dined amongst exotic animals from around the world.

The REAL Highlight of ASAPS

Although dinner at the zoo was amazing, Dr. Zeidler had to admit that her favorite part of her visit to San Diego was getting a ride in a bike taxi after walking around in stilettos all day!

Dr. Berkowitz Speaks on Innovations in Rhinoplasty

Dr. B’s time at ASAPS was just as busy! He was a featured speaker in a panel regarding innovations in rhinoplasty where he showed his 5-minute video of utilizing the ultra-high frequency piezo electric power tools. This generated quite a bit of discussion but with much greater acceptance of the validity compared to his prior presentations on the subject.

Dr. Berkowitz was also the co- chairman of the Rhinoplasty Symposium along with the president of the Rhinoplasty Society, Dr Geoffrey Keyes. The symposium was designed to educate plastic surgeons who are not members of the Rhinoplasty Society on what changes are being made. Surgeons from across the world were speakers in the program. The emphasis was on the more predictable and versatile approach to a more structured rhinoplasty result utilizing cartilage grafts from the nose, ear and rib donor sites.

Again power tools were featured by Dr Berkowitz as an innovation to improve outcomes.

After the Symposium Dr Berkowitz was a faculty member in a cadaver course on rhinoplasty where participants learned basic and advanced techniques in an open forum with their colleagues. Dr Berkowitz provided piezo machines from Comeg and Synthes for the participants to try out. This is the beginning of what will be a revolution if not just an evolution in our field.

Dr. Berkowitz and Dr. Zeidler had a great time in San Diego, but they’re happy to be back at Aesthetx doing what they do best – making you, you…only better.
