Genetic disposition is the most significant determinant of breast and areola size
Thank you for your question. Genetic disposition is the most significant determinant of breast and areola size. At 13 years of age your breast and body are rapidly changing. Your final areola, breast, and body will not be stable for several years to come. Unfortunately, there are not any non-surgical means to reduce the areola. Furthermore, most surgeons would wait until your growth has plateaued before offering surgical reduction. If you are very distressed discuss your concerns with your parents so that they may consider a consultation with a reputable plastic surgeon.
