What is the Best Age for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is an ideal way to improve the size, shape, symmetry, and profile of your chest. If you are over the age of 18 and unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, now may very well be the best age for you to consider breast augmentation. This is something that can be determined during a one-on-one consultation with board-certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. David Bottger.

Silicone breast implants cannot be placed in women under the age of 22. If you are considering breast augmentation before that age, your breast implant options will be limited. This is not to suggest that women under the age of 22 are not good candidates for breast augmentation, but those who would benefit more from silicone implants might find waiting a better option.

Another important consideration to make before committing to breast augmentation is your future plans for pregnancy. If you plan to have children in the future, Dr. Bottger can design your procedure to help prevent interference with breastfeeding, though changes to the appearance of your breasts may be unavoidable during pregnancy and while nursing.

The best way to learn if breast augmentation is right for you at your current age is by having a frank discussion with our board-certified plastic surgeon. Your comprehensive initial consultation will allow Dr. Bottger to answer your questions, discuss your options, and assist you in choosing what can best help you reach your goals.
