What is the Right Age for Breast Augmentation?


Breast augmentation is an important decision. The best way to get a personalized recommendation is to schedule a consultation with Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. John Corey, who will provide guidance in your decision making.

You are the best judge of whether the time is right for you to receive breast augmentation. Factors you may want to consider include:

  • Your age: Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for women age 22 and older, while saline breast implants are approved for those age 18 and older. These are the lower age limits for breast augmentation. There really is no upper age limit.
  • Future pregnancies: Pregnancy changes the appearance of your breasts, so breast augmentation results can be lost following pregnancy. If you are planning to become pregnant very soon, you may want to postpone your breast surgery.
  • Breast dissatisfaction: An important aspect of breast augmentation candidacy, is dissatisfaction with the size or shape of your breasts.  This problem can be addressed with Breast Augmentation Surgery.

If you feel ready to get the look you want, now may be the best time for breast augmentation.
