Has anyone had this operation after the age of 65?

A former colleague of mine had it done when she was 58. She had huge breasts although she was slim. The scars were quite bad, but she was very happy with the results.

The surgery involves a lot of incisions, how you heal and your pain threshold should be taken into account.

Yes perhaps not for the faint hearted, though some people who have had it done when younger have been pleased they did.

It’s not too late I know a couple of women who had it done in their 50/60s neither with any regrets. It’s a great weight off back and shoulders.
