MakeMeHeal.com has an article addressing whether Miley Cyrus may have undergone a breast augmentation in the recent past. I doubt it.
Although the FDA does not recommend breast implants for anyone under the age of 18, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 4000 girls under the age of 18 underwent breast augmentation in 2004. While this is a tiny number compared to the nearly 350,000 women who had breast augmentation in 2007, it is still concerning that plastic surgeons are performing these procedures on minors. I do not perform this procedure on anyone under 18 unless they have some type of developmental deformity, and am cautious on performing the procedure on anyone under the age of 22 who does not have parental support... but that's just my opinion.
