A 19-year-old female asked:
if you develop anorexia before puberty (causing delayed puberty), after recovery, will your breasts ever reach their full potential size?

Maybe: If the anorexia occurs after breast development, the fat loss in the breast will be replaced during recovery. Hard to predict if it will be the same amount if no anorexia. If the anorexia occurs during breast growth, then it could affect duct and gland growth.
