Breast augmentation is a very safe procedure, but it does not come without the risk of serious complications, especially for young women under the age of 18. Hematoma, infection, allergic reaction, delayed wound healing, scarring, excessive bleeding and implant rupture are some of the potential complications.
Furthermore, your body is still developing during your teenage years before and after puberty. Even during your 20s, your body is still growing and changing. Your breast size may increase naturally after your body has finished developing. However, there are some exceptions to this, so it’s important to discuss your wishes and concerns with a surgeon who is experienced with breast augmentation procedures. He or she will best be able to advise you whether or not you should wait or if you’re a good candidate for surgery right away.
