Do You Have Fully Developed Breasts?
Most doctors recommend against performing breast augmentation surgery on adolescent patients, whose bodies are still developing.

Patients fighting severe illnesses or infections should avoid having surgeries that are not specifically intended to address their medical problems. Patients who have untreated breast cancer should not get breast augmentation surgery, although they may be candidates for surgery after the cancer has been treated.
