18 is the age for most cosmetic procedures.  Butt Augmentation is especially important that you have reached full physical and emotional maturity.

18 is the legal age.

By law, you have to be at least 18 years of age for any surgical procedure, unless you are emancipated from your parents.  If you are under 18 and the surgeon recommends you to move forward with surgery, you can have your parents or legal guardian sign for you.  It is always smart to wait until you are a little older to make sure that surgery is what you want with no regrets.

Age for buttock augmentation

Most patients undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery should be at least 18 years old, especially for a buttock augmentation. There are a few exeptions, but you should discuss this in person with a board certified plastic surgeon. If you are under 18, you will need the consent of your parents before any type of surgery.

Appropriate age for buttock augmentation

In general the ethically acceptable age for cosmetic plastic surgery is 18 years old.  That being said other factors are important such as physical and psychological maturity and parental approval.  Additionally, some adolescent patients have extreme physical conditions that make it more acceptable and/or functionally necessary to undergo surgery prior to turning 18 years old.  Best of luck...RAS
