In brief: All ages!

Under 18 requires both parental consent and a patient that has a legitimate need for surgery and has completed her breast growth.
Certain congenital deformities would qualify, but rarely is cosmetic augmentation done before age 18. After that, any age is appropriate for the informed and consenting patient, right up until the 60's and even a few in their "young 70's.".
