Breast Reduction in Your Late Teens or 20s
There has been a lot of publicity around Modern Family actress Ariel Winter undergoing breast reduction surgery last summer at the age of 18. Winter has been very public about her surgery, explaining that she opted for a breast reduction because her 32F breasts had been causing her physical pain for years. Today, as a size 34D she says she feels so much better about herself.
Young women today are taking advantage of the minimally invasive surgery options to relieve the pain associated with having very large breasts. Winter is not the only patient in her late teens or 20s to undergo breast reduction. In fact, Jimmy S Firouz, MD FACS performs breast reduction for many women in this age range. Dr. Firouz is a double board certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills with special expertise in breast reduction procedures.
When is a good time for a breast reduction?
Most women’s breasts reach their maximum size when they are done going through puberty, usually around 16 to 18 years old. If at this point a woman already has breasts that are very large and begin causing her neck, shoulder, and back pain, or maybe she feels very uncomfortable with how she looks because her breasts are disproportionately large for her body, she may be a candidate for breast reduction.
There are several reasons women choose to undergo breast reduction, and every patient has a unique goal in mind for what she wants her breasts to look and feel like. At The Firouz Institute of Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, Dr. Firouz tells his patients that if they have already started to think about a breast reduction, even in their 20s, then they should have a serious consultation with a plastic surgeon to see if they are in fact ready, both emotionally and physically, to undergo surgery.
What is breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction reduces and reshapes the size of the breasts so they are smaller, lighter, and firmer. This procedure provides results that are both physically and emotionally beneficial. Physically, the smaller breasts after surgery give the patient a more proportionate body, as well as get rid of the neck, shoulder and back pain felt from the heavy breasts. In addition to the physical results, after surgery many patients tell Dr. Firouz that emotionally they feel so much better. Many women with large breasts are unable to live their daily lives comfortably or enjoy physical activities because of the discomfort and pain their large breasts cause them. After the surgery when the extra weight has literally been lifted off their shoulders, they are pain free and are able to lead a more comfortable and healthy life.

However, the most common procedure involves an incision that circles the areola. From the areola, the incision goes down and follows the natural curve under the breast. Dr. Firouz then removes excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. Next, the nipple and areola are repositioned to a higher position and held in place by stitches. During your consultation, Dr. Firouz will explain in detail the surgical techniques he thinks will benefit you the most.
