Breast Reduction in Teenagers Can Improve Quality of Life

Teenage girls with excessively large breasts can suffer from a number of physical as well as emotional issues which can add stress to their lives. A recent study published in the July 2012 issue of Pediatrics, suggests that teens can have a lower quality of life if they suffer from large breasts. Excessive breast size can influence self-esteem, eating behaviors and physical limitations and discomfort. This is independent of their body weight index.

Fortunately, breast reduction surgery is usually outpatient, recovery is usually relatively short and satisfaction rates are very high. Further in this younger age group, who has not yet developed significant amounts of breast sag, satisfactory breast reduction can often be accomplished with liposuction alone. Thus scars are minimized while volume and weight reduction are accomplished and the potential for later breast feeding of infants is maximized.
