Not usual for disk: With the muscular atrophy and neuritis, it might be best to undergo further testing. There are many possible causes, including diabetes, autoimmune, endocrine, to mention a few. At your age, a complete workup is indicated.

Genetics rule: Unfortunately we are all given a genetic MAP for our body we cannot escape. Skeletal muscle cells do not increase in number only size with exercise so your existing muscle gets larger . You should know that many body builders have plastic surgery implants performed to make their muscles look the way they want them to. Exercise, lose weight and see what you look like then, there are no shortcuts.

Repair is normal: Acl repair is standard for most cases as it is so vital to knee stability especially at such a young age. The methods are so refined now that the outcome is usually very good as long as you do your part with rehab. Pcl repair is evaluated at the time of acl reconstruction. Each case is different so see at least one surgeon and then decide.
