How Old Do I Need to Be to Have Breast Augmentation?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


You must be at least 18 years old to undergo breast augmentation with saline implants at Renaissance Plastic Surgery. For silicone breast implants, the FDA requires you be at least 22 years old. There is no upper age limit for this procedure.

Many women continue to develop into their early 20s - some developing well into their mid to late 20s - and it may be a good idea to postpone breast enhancement until that time. The best way to determine if now is the right time for your breast augmentation procedure is through a one-on-one consultation with board-certified Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata.

Good Breast Augmentation Candidates

Good candidates for breast augmentation should be:

  • Nonsmokers
  • In good physical and emotional health
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure and recovery period
  • Able to take time off from work and certain activities
  • Willing to follow pre and postoperative directions

The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who find their busts lacking in size or who are unhappy with the shape, projection, or space between their breasts. If you find yourself displeased with your appearance and you believe augmenting your breasts could help bring your body into more pleasing proportions, you may be the ideal candidate for this procedure. The most effective way to find out is by calling our office and scheduling a consultation with Dr. Fata.
