What is the Best Age for Breast Augmentation?

Mar 1, 2013

The decision to undergo breast augmentation is a highly personal one, and the best age for your breast augmentation depends on your unique circumstances and aesthetic desires.

The Right Age For This Procedure

It is important to note that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved saline breast implants for women 18 years of age and older, and approved silicone breast implants for women 22 and older. Aside from meeting those requirements, board-certified St. Petersburg, Florida, plastic surgeon Dr. Antonio Gayoso can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for breast augmentation.

According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), most women choose breast augmentation in their 20s or 30s. Approximately 30 percent of breast augmentations are performed on women in their 20s, while about 35 percent are performed on women in their 30s.

That said, women who are in their 40s and 50s and who are seeking to restore contour, volume and youthful profile to their breasts may also benefit from this procedure.
