If you are in your late teens or early twenties and you want to get a boob job, you are not alone. In fact, as a way to make you look and feel sexier, boob jobs are popular amongst young girls everywhere. However, due to your body, lifestyle, and opinions changing as you get older and more mature, you might want to reconsider getting your breast enhancement surgery done until you are in your mid-to-late twenties. Read on to learn more.
Your Body Changes
If you are still in your teens and want to get a boob job, consider the fact that your body is still changing. In fact, you still might have a body that resembles more of a preteen than an adult, which means that you might not get the correct size of implant that will be suitable for your adult shaped body as you get older.
Your Lifestyle Changes
Yes you may be into things like working out a lot when you are in your late teens or early twenties, but after you graduate college and start your career, your lifestyle is likely going to change, meaning that things like working out might either take more of a precedence or might take a back seat. And because things like physical activity can make having larger sized breasts uncomfortable at times, your lifestyle will make a big impact on the size of breasts you are going to get.
Your Opinions Change
The older and more mature you get, the more you start to develop into your own person with your own opinions. And although the thought of having large perky breasts when you are 18 might sound like a good idea, your 27 year old self might want implants that are a bit smaller and more subtle.
Just like with many things in life, it’s better to wait than be sorry later on. If you are in your late teens or early twenties and are considering getting breast enhancement surgery, consider waiting until your mid-to-late twenties instead.

As a parent all you can ask for is that your child is both healthy and happy. If your child was born with a cleft lip or palate, you might think the worst and let your anxiety get the best of you. And although a cleft lip or palate is far from ideal, there are surgical procedures that we do here at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants that can help to restore your both your child’s appearance and functionality. Read on to learn more about these procedures.
Cleft Lip Surgery
Our office recommends that cleft lip surgery be done when an infant is approximately 3 months old. During the surgical procedure an entire team will be involved including pediatricians, speech pathologists, orthodontists, oral surgeons, and more in order to ensure that your child gets the best results possible. Although a scar will be visible directly following the surgery, the scar will eventually fade and not be visible.
Cleft Palate Surgery
As a more serious condition, a cleft palate requires immediate surgery which involves a few weeks of recovery and will require medication and medical treatment. During the surgery, the opening in the roof of the mouth will be closed up by rebuilding the palate and joining the muscle together. After surgery, your infant should slowly be able to learn to eat properly. Additionally, during recovery and as your child ages, it will be recommended that they see a speech pathologist in order to help them enunciate and speak properly as their palate continues to heal and form properly.
Both cleft lip and cleft palates are birth defects that are very serious but that are also very treatable. Here at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants we know just how important the health of your child is and treat all of our patients with the utmost precision and care.
