Breast Augmentation - Am I too young to be having this procedure?



For any surgery, patients must be of legal age to make a decision as an adult, which is the age of 18. In regards to breast augmentation, you must wait til the age of 22 to have silicone implants placed. This is a recommendation by the Food and Drug Administration, the government agency that regulates breast implants. However, you can sign paperwork to have silicone implants before the age of 22 but this may nullify the warranty provided by the implant maker.
