Am I too young to have surgery?

Posted by Dr Jamie Burt on 14 September 2015

Making the decision to have a breast reduction at any age requires serious consideration, but when you are considering still growing as a teenager it takes on another level of consideration. When Modern Family's 17 year old star Ariel Winter underwent a breast reduction in June of this year, it is likely that younger women with breast issues took notice.

The breast reduction surgery took her from a size 32F to a 34D. Ariel has a petite frame 5 foot 1inches and admits to wearing big jumpers to hid her breasts or even strapping them down. After hunching over on set and admits to a lot of back problems. After years of emotional and physical stress Ariel decided this was right for her.

If you are young and thinking of a breast reduction make sure you ask a lot of questions before you do and do your research. Check out our FAQs.
