Am I too young for a Breast Reduction?

Q:

I'm 20 years old and my bra size has just hit 38 I. I have horrible bruising on my shoulders, neck, and back; I have shoulder pain and headaches as well. I also get short of breath easily. I know I have more growing to do yet, but my breasts are causing a lot of problems for me aside for medical. Am I too young for this procedure or is it okay to go ahead with it? Thanks

A:

It is best to do a breast reduction after full breast development. However, for someone with symptoms like yours, it is very reasonable to proceed with a reduction as long as you accept the possibility that you may need another procedure later. To account for this in cases like this, we generally reduce the breasts slightly more than ideal. I have never gone back, but it is a definite possibility.
