What is the ideal age for a breast augmentation?

Is there an ideal age to get a breast augmentation? I'm 24 and plan on getting one within the next 3 months. Is 24 a good age to get a breast aug?

There is no ideal age for breast augmentation.  Patients younger than 22 years of age are only eligible for saline breast implants per FDA recommendations.  Discuss your goals with your cosmetic surgeon.

Hi Megan,

Absolutely! The ideal age for a breast augmentation is when you are emotionally and physically ready to have the surgery.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon with a lot of experience in your area to discuss this further an plan for surgery. 

Best of luck!

There are a few things to consider. If you have wanted an aug for some time, feel it will help with your self confidence, then the age does not matter. Additional considerations include if you are thinking of having children soon or in the process of loosing weight. These things will change the shape of your breasts. You may want to think about the timing. Thanks and good luck
