Unless there are unusual circumstances, such as significant breast hypoplasia/asymmetry associated with congenital breast development abnormality, 18 years of age is the earliest patients can have breast augmentation surgery.

If you are under 18, there is a possibility you can have your parents sign for you but silicone implants can only be used if you are over 22.

In brief: 18 in most states

Surgical consents require that the patient be an adult (unless a legal guardian signs) which in most states is 18.
The american society of plastic surgeons does not recommend that pure cosmetic procedures be performed in minors except in special circumstances.
