Nearly 115,000 women underwent breast reduction surgery last year. A growing number of those women are teens. These young women are making the decision to have teen breast reduction surgery because they experience pain, low self-esteem, and have difficulties with daily activities. The number of teens undergoing breast reduction surgery is expected to increase with actress Ariel Winter’s honest and brave public discussion of her own surgery and the phenomenal success she experienced.
The Modern Family actress made her first major public appearance post breast reduction surgery on the Emmy Red Carpet wearing a stunning red strapless gown by Romona Keveza. Prior to the surgery, Ariel suffered from severe back and neck pain and was bullied and body shamed online. But after undergoing breast reduction surgery, she has publicly stated that it was the best thing she has ever done for herself and her self-esteem. Ariel told “E!” on the red carpet that she can reach a lot of people her age and make a difference by talking about things going on in her life. She hopes to inspire other young women with her own story of transforming her life and health for the better. Many other celebrities have bravely shared their stories of breast reduction to support teens and adults considering making this life improvement.
I have performed lollipop breast reduction procedures in teens with phenomenal results for many years and have seen the positive transformation of their lives. Teen patients do exceptionally well and recovery is quick with most teens back up and running one week after surgery.
