I'm really not sure why so many of my colleagues who will use Botox daily in crow's feet (Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved ONLY for treatment of glabellar frown lines--use in other areas is considered "off-label" but is absolutely legal and appropriate for the informed patient who requests this) are so adamant in not using silicone gel implants in well-informed women under age 22 who request them!
SILICONE GEL IMPLANTS ARE LEGAL FOR WOMEN UNDER AGE 22!
Use of silicone gel implants in this age group is considered "off-label" (just as Botox in crows feet for any age women), and not only appropriate for the woman who is well-informed and consents to and requests their use, but preferable in slim petite women with little breast tissue. The incidence of visible rippling and wrinkling is much higher with saline implants in this type of patient, and silicone greatly reduces these concerns, while also providing a softer, more natural "feel" and NO chance of leakage or deflation EVER.
So find a surgeon who is informed and willing to give you the best results possible.
Sure, waiting is always an option, but will your anatomy or wishes for larger breasts change in 3 years? Or will your ability to accept and understand the informed consent process regarding silicone gel implants suddenly be better once you're 22? That's hogwash!
