Our Phoenix breast surgeons, does not believe there is a “best age” for breast augmentation. The age you choose to undergo breast augmentation is your own personal choice. Many women choose to undergo this procedure in their 20s, 30s, or 40s, but breast augmentation for older women is also common. The determining factor in your decision to have breast augmentation should be your level of comfort with the appearance of your breasts. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of your chest, now is the best age for this procedure.

Age Factors

There is no upper age limit for breast augmentation candidacy, but you must be at least 18-years-old to have this procedure. If you decide to have breast augmentation prior to the age of 22, your breast implant options will be limited. Because your breasts will continue to develop into your early 20s, many women choose to wait until after the age of 22 for breast augmentation. This increases your breast enlargement options and also helps ensure the final aesthetic results compliment your fully developed frame.

The decision to have breast augmentation is a personal one and is not dependent on age. During your initial consultation, we will listen carefully to your concerns, assess your entire frame, and help you determine if now the best time for you to have this procedure.
