Breast Augmentation and Other Options Your 20s
Like many people, you assume that plastic surgery is suitable only for older patients. Therefore, if you are unhappy with your appearance, you may feel at a loss. But if you’re in your 20s, you do not want to wait another 20 years or more to achieve the figure of your dreams. Fortunately, there are a number of procedures that are entirely suitable for younger patients. Breast augmentation is one of the most common options for women in their 20s. Dr. Suzanne Yee offers a full selection of breast implants, and she will help you select the right type for your goals. She can also explain your other surgical and non-surgical treatment options.

Enhance Your Figure with Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a common procedure that can benefit women of all ages. The procedure may be especially suitable for younger women who have overall healthy bodies but long for a fuller, more voluptuous figure. Additionally, women in their 20s will often heal faster than older patients.
If you choose to undergo breast augmentation, Dr. Yee will help you choose between saline and silicone implants. Both types are safe, but one may be more appropriate for your goals and body type. She will also help you decide on the right placement for the implants. She can position them over or under your pectoral muscles, depending on your preferences. Breast implants can last a lifetime, so you can enjoy your enhanced figure for decades. As a younger patient, you may worry about the health effects of implants over so many years. Implants pose no adverse risks, and they will not affect your ability to get pregnant or breastfeed. However, if you opt for saline implants, you may want to schedule more frequent breast MRIs.
Breast Reduction Can Sometimes Benefit Younger Women
Breast reduction is another treatment that may be suitable in your 20s. If you naturally have larger breasts, the procedure can make you look slimmer and more youthful. You may enjoy additional benefits, particularly if your large breasts impair your physical activity, cause back pain, or lead to skin irritation. Although the results of breast reduction are permanent, weight gain or pregnancy later in life can change the size of your breasts.
Facial Surgery in Your 20s
Most plastic surgery procedures, such as facelifts, neck lifts, and brow lifts are intended to address the signs of aging. Therefore, they are not typically appropriate when you are in your 20s. Nevertheless, there are a few treatments that can enhance your appearance at this younger age. Rhinoplasty, or a “nose job” is one of the most common options. Dr. Yee can remove bone or soft cartilage to reduce the size of your nose or correct irregularities. Alternatively, she may graft tissue to build up your nose or fill in depressions on the bridge. Otoplasty, also known as “ear sculpting” is another option for younger patients. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your ears, Dr. Yee can trim away some cartilage to achieve a more pleasing form. She can also position your ears closer to the sides of your head.
Body Sculpting for Younger Patients
Though more common among patient in their 30s and 40s, there are several body sculpting procedures that can benefit younger women. The most common include:
- Tummy tuck
It is important to remember that aging and pregnancy could minimize the results of these treatments later down the road. Dr. Yee will help you make a fully informed decision to determine whether these procedures are right for you.
