At What Age is a Breast Augmentation Appropriate?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we understand that every woman is unique. As such, it’s impossible to say exactly when it is appropriate for you to undergo a breast augmentation. However, there are some guidelines to keep in mind if you’re considering an augmentation in Denver.

First, women should wait until their bodies are physically mature before undergoing a breast augmentation. Everyone matures at different rates and at different ages. It’s important to exercise patience when considering a breast augmentation.

Second, there are age minimums involved when considering saline vs. silicone breast implants. You must be at least 18 years old before receiving saline breast implants. The age minimum for silicone breast implants is 22.

A majority of breast augmentations (more than 60 percent) are performed for women in their 20’s or 30’s. These are often the ages when our women are in a stable financial position and sound overall health.

Ultimately, however, the decision as to timing is up to you. We are committed to making sure you are a sound candidate for a surgical procedure.
