Can Teens Get Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is possible in the late teens. Saline implants are FDA approved for cosmetic breast enhancement in women that are 18+. Last year, breast augmentation was one of the top surgical cosmetic procedure for women in their teens with 7,840 procedures performed in the U.S. If you’re at least 18 and want to change the size, shape, or appearance of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation. You can get breast augmentation only if you meet specific criteria which can be determined during a personalized consultation.

Can I Get Silicone Implants as a Teen?

Saline implants are FDA approved for women 18+, but silicone implants are only approved for women aged 22 and older. If you want silicone implants, it may be best to wait until you’re a little older. The good news is, saline implants are an excellent choice for many women. When placed by a highly skilled breast surgeon like Dr. Sajjadian, saline implants can look and feel very natural. They are also more cost effective than a similarly sized silicone implant.

If I Get Breast Augmentation as a Teen, Will I Need Implant Replacement in the Future?

Implants are long lasting, often working beautifully for decades or longer, but replacement is sometimes necessary. Plan on at least one future surgery after your initial breast augmentation. Implant replacement, breast lift surgery after pregnancy, or the desire to change implant size are all common reasons for another breast surgery. A subsequent surgery would be likely even if you waited until your 30s or 40s for breast augmentation. If you are ready to enhance your body now, don’t wait.
