I am 16, 17 next month, and I would like a breast augmentation.

I've spoken with my mother and she supports me on my decision. Is my age a problem? My breasts have stopped growing and I am going to consult my doctor soon. I am very asymmetrical and have small breasts.

You should meet with a board certified ASAPS member surgeon in your area. All breast augmentation is both cosmetic and reconstructive and only an evaluation of your particular anatomy will allow your surgeon to determine their comfort level with performing the procedure to help you.

Quite honestly, it depends on how you are planning on paying for the procedure. If you are hoping insurance will cover the procedure, they may have a policy that you need to be 18 years old. If you (or your parents) are planning on paying cash for the procedure, then it could be done anytime if the surgeon is comfortable performing surgery on you. Personally, I have performed this surgery many times on young women like yourself with great results.

Good luck,

Unfortunately, Breast Augmentation is limited to women over the age of 18 for saline and 22 for silicone. However, It can be done at an earlier age if you have a developmental deformity. Mild asymmetry doesn't qualify. You should definitely consult a Plastic Surgeon in your area to be evaluated in person.

Good Luck
