For the right candidate, breast augmentation can have tremendously positive outcomes. Not only will you breasts be fuller, but you may feel more attractive and have increased confidence, which can lead to anything from increased professional success to better enjoyment of sex.
We are often asked if there is a right age for breast augmentation. The truth is the right age for each woman is as individual as you are. There is no one best age for breast augmentation, but in determining the best age for your procedure you should consider your maturity, stability, and level of desire.
Maturity is important. You should be physically mature. The FDA only recommends breast implants for women age 18 or older (22 or older for silicone breast implants), but you should talk to women in your family about when they developed, because not all women’s breasts mature at the same age.
Stability is also important. If you are considering breast augmentation, you will need the support of friends and family to help you get to and from the procedure and help you during the first stage of your recovery.
Finally, you should gauge your level of desire to change your figure. Breast augmentation should not be entered as a casual decision. It should also not be decided during the stress of a transition, such as a divorce or other personal crisis. You should only undergo cosmetic surgery when it is truly what you want to feel comfortable and confident in your own body.
