How old do you have to be to get butt implants or a butt lift?

ANSWERS FROM DOCTORS (5)


Answered by The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery

There is no particular age limit outside the age of legal consent.

There are implant-related FDA recommendations on age but these are not law. Patients will commonly have implants placed at an age younger than the recommended FDA parameters. This is considered an "off-label" usage.

Ultimately, the optimal candidate is in good health and has reached a healthy, stable weight (preferably with a BMI < 30).

As always, discuss your concerns with a board-certified plastic surgeon (ABPS).

To receive butt implants or a butt lift, you must be at least 18 years old. But it may be wise to wait until you are a little older to be sure that is what you want and to ensure you are done developing physically.

Most states have laws that define whether or not you are an adult who is responsible for your choices. The usual age is 18 years, but there are exceptions for citizens who are independent and making their own living.
Ultimately, regardless of your age, your surgeon will have to make a decision as to whether you are emotionally able to go through the operation and deal with the results.

It would be best to wait until you are fully grown, as your body may change. That said, patients definitely must be 18 or older in order to undergo the procedure.
