The indication for breast imaging prior to breast augmentation depends mainly on 2 factors:
- Your age
- Family history
Typically, I recommend a mammogram in any woman over the age of 35 prior to any breast surgery. In women with a strong family history, and particularly if a family member has the breast cancer gene (BRCA 1 or 2), I would recommend a mammogram or MRI even prior to the age of 35.
