I’ve had rapid breast growth, want breast reduction surgery, what age should I typically get this surgery?

I am a 17 year old female who isn’t over weight and a healthy weight at that. Since I was in middle school I’ve had rapid breast growth considering my genes but I have overgrown all my relatives even the overweight ones. Because of this I’ve had tremendous back pain which I’ve seen a chiropractor which hasn’t helped much. So I’ve come to decide the choice of a breast reduction, I will be going from a DDD to a C. I was wondering what age I should typically get this surgery and if I do plan on getting pregnant will that effect the reduction. I also want to know if I can put the tissue from my breasts into be butt.

hi
i think you should see a endocrinologist first to see if some hormonal therapy can get the breast size reduced instead of directly jumping to surgical option.
If at all,the surgery is required and planned,you can get it anytime after the age of 20 yrs.
It won’t affect your pregnancy chances,Don’t worry.
Thanks

It is OK to get a breast reduction surgery done at your age if you are experiencing back and neck pain although it is advised to try exercise first .
It may lead you later to produce less or no milk in breastfeeding stages.
I do not support your idea of grafting the tissue into buttocks as it needs to be sent for labs first before regrafting.
And you should get some time to get used for your body’s new contour and shape before going to buttock surgery.

HI
BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY CAN BE DONE AT YOUR PRESENT AGE TOO BUT IT WILL BE BETTER IF YOU WAIT FOR ANOTHER 2-3 YEARS TILL YOU ACHIEVE FULL GROWTH.
IF PROPERLY PERFORMED,IT WILL NOT AFFECT YOUR PREGNANCY

hello there
rapid breast growth at this age occurs due to hormonal surge due to puberty.
some hormonal tablets can help you reduce the size to some extent.try and avoid surgery for atleast 5 years from now.
may affect pregnancy due to hormonal disturbances thereafter
