How Old Do I Have to be to Get Silicone Implants?
Last Friday we asked our Facebook fans if 21 year-old Miss Jessica Smith can have silicone implants. The answer to this is MAYBE. Yes, Jessica needs to be 22 years old to undergo breast augmentation using silicone implants IF this is her first time having breast augmentation and if this was strictly for cosmetic purposes. However, if Jessica was having revisionary surgery or reconstructive surgery then she is able to have silicone implants despite her age.
The FDA approved silicone gel-filled breast implants for increasing breast size (augmentation) in women age 22 or older and for reconstruction (after breast cancer surgery or other medical issues) in ALL women. Silicone implants are also approved for revision surgeries, which correct or improve the result of an original augmentation or reconstruction surgery.
