Breast Growth After Twenty

Although breast growth varies from patient to patient, it generally stops between 16 and 20 years of age. Even though growth stops, the breasts continue to undergo changes for the remainder of a woman's life. This is affected by weight gain, pregnancy, lactation and gravity.



Unfortunately, how these factors impact any particular woman is variable. In many cases, weight loss might actually make the breasts smaller. For this reason, the most reliable method of addressing breast hypoplasia in someone in your age group is with breast augmentation surgery.



Under these circumstances, consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is appropriate. This surgeon should be able to formulate a treatment plan that addresses your anatomic findings and achieves your aesthetic goals.

Breast development

By age 20, most women have completed breast maturation and development.  In rare instances, the breasts may develop later in adulthood.  Breast size does change with weight fluctuations.

While the breasts will change over time, the volume you have now is probably what you will have unless you gain weight.

Breast size throughout life can be variable.

The most likely reason for you to gain significant breast volume would be substantial weight gain. Hormones can certainly change the volume of the breast as with pregnancy. What specifically is going to happen to you is unpredictable.

Will breasts change naturally after age 20?

By age 20, your breasts have pretty much reached their adult size and are unlikely to grow much larger naturally.  At this point, weight loss/gain, pregnancy, etc. are most likely to affect the size of your breasts.

At 20's most women breasts are already fully developed . So , unless you gain weight or get pregnant there are very low chances of them getting bigger .
