Buttock Augmentation

I would not do a buttock augmentation on a minor.  I suggest you wait and see how your body changes over the next several years before proceeding with surgery.  Donald R. Nunn MD Plastic Surgeon.

Age for buttock augmentation

I would not recommend elective cosmetic surgery until you're at the age 18. This is a guideline established by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Butt augmentation

Butt aumentation,a Brazilian butt lift, can be done at an early age but I would recommend waiting for your body will change with time, probably enlarge in that area as well as others and you may not need an enlargement. It is better to be more conservative for all surgery involves scars and can potentialy cause problems. I do do an increasing number of teen cosmetic surgery but it is usually breast reductions, nose reductions but some breast enlargement and even liposuction. Watch my videos!
