How old do you have to be to get breast implants?

I'm 18 years old and really want to get breast implants. I've read online that you have to be at least 18 years old before you can get breast implant surgery but I wanted a for sure answer.

Most plastic surgeons will not place breast implants until your 18. However you should be 22 before having the new cohesive silicone gel breast implants.

Most plastic surgeons follow FDA guidelines and perform breast augmentation after age 18 with saline implants and after age 22 with silicone implants.

Hello,

For cosmetic reasons we recommend 20 years old as a minimum age. However in cases of severe hypotrophy in breasts with too little development of breast tissue and in case of abnormality with different volume, so called asymmetry, the surgery can be done before that age. In younger ages under 18 years old the surgery is very rare and should be done only with the consent of parents. Start with consulting a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate the possibilities in your case and the timing of the procedure.

Good luck
