I've always hated my breast and wanted to get implants, right now I'm 17 and thinking "Should I wait or get them ASAP?" I'm tired of waiting but if it would be better for me to wait, I will. I just need advice right now because I don't know much about my options, and does anyone know about how much it will cost me and payment plans?

Silicone Breast Implants in 18 year old
The FDA approval for the use of silicone gel filled implants is only for women who are 22 years old or older. Saline filled implants do not have any age restriction associated with their use. In my practice, the minimum age for breast augmentation with saline filled implants is 18 years old assuming that they are a good candidate and emotionally mature.

If you want silicone implants you will have to wait until you are 22 as recommended by the FDA. Sorry.
