What is the Best Age for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation can improve the size, shape, profile, and symmetry of your breasts. If you are over the age of 18 and unhappy with any of those things, now may be the best age for you to consider breast augmentation. However, many women continue to develop into their mid-20’s and may wish to put surgery off until after that point.

The truth is, there is no one right age for breast augmentation. Every woman is entitled to choose when she feels the time is right. Virginia plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman would be happy to meet with you and discuss your options to help you determine if now is the right time for you.

Silicone Breast Implants

The FDA has not approved silicone breast implants for women under the age of 22. Silicone breast implants may look and feel more like natural breast tissue and are less likely to exhibit aesthetic imperfections when placed above the muscle in the chest. If you are interested in silicone breast implants and under the age of 22, breast augmentation may be something you choose to put off for a bit.

Dr. Desman is an experienced plastic surgeon who strongly believes that every woman deserves to look and feel her best. During your breast augmentation consultation he can answer any questions you have and provide you with honest information about when it may be best for you to undergo this procedure.
