Breast augmentation and tummy tucks are some of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures today, with thousands of American women choosing to receive them each year. It’s not uncommon for women who have had children and wish to regain their pre-pregnancy body to choose to have both as part of a Mommy Makeover.
What does Breast Augmentation Involve?
Breast augmentation procedures are designed to increase the size and fullness of breasts and to improve their shape. This is accomplished by surgically placing saline or silicone implants in the breast, either under or over the muscle.
Is There an Age Requirement for Breast Augmentation?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved saline implants for women 18 years old and older. Silicone implants are approved by the FDA for women 22 years of age and older.
