According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more women between the ages of 19 and 34 undergo breast augmentation than any other age group. At over 140,000 augmentations performed in 2015, these young women account for nearly 50 percent of all breast augmentations. With statistics like these, it is evident that breast augmentation at a younger age is undeniably popular. Here, we explore what makes your 20s and 30s an ideal time to consider breast augmentation.
Your Breasts Have Fully Developed
Just as you settle into your 20s, so too does your body. Fully developed, your breasts will have finished growing. During this time, you may discover that you are unsatisfied with the size or shape of your breasts. Like women of all ages, younger women want implants for all different reasons. Finding their breasts not full enough, ill-proportioned, or slightly saggy are amongst the most popular requests at our Raleigh practice.
Your Body is Healthy and Adaptable
Like any surgery, breast augmentation is physically demanding. Still in the early stages of your life, you are likely to be at your healthiest and strongest. At the height of your physical fitness, your body is better able to handle the stress that surgery can place on it, and you are likely to experience fewer complications.
At this young of an age, your body is able to adapt to the changes of breast augmentation. With an ample amount of elasticity, your skin can easily stretch to cover the addition of an implant. Still malleable, the skin is able to support the implant—keeping it at an upright and perky position.
You’re Not Thinking About Having Children Soon
While you cannot stop your biological clock from ticking, you are able to plan around it. The earlier you choose to undergo breast augmentation, the more time you will have before body-changing events like pregnancy, childbirth, and breast feeding. By the time you are ready to have kids, you will have been able to enjoy your implants for a number of years.
