Is 16 to Young for a Breast Reduction?

Avoid boat anchor incisions
Breast reduction under 18
If your breasts are too large at age 16 they are not likely to get smaller as you age. If your large breasts are symptomatic with neck, shoulder, and back, pain a breast reduction procedure may be beneficial. Keep in mind the small risk of nipple numbness.
What age for a breast reduction
I strongly feel you are not too young for a breast reduction at 16 years old. My daughter had the procedure performed at that age. It was great for her, as she is a swimmer as well. I would suggest you get a consultation from a board certified plastic surgeon with your parents to be informed about the procedure.
