Possibly: There are cases of massive breast enlargement in young women, and this includes 13 year-olds. You should seek out a board certified plastic surgeon as sometimes early surgery is necessary.

Yes...: Possibly. In my practice, timing of breast surgery is determined on a case-by-case basis. Great operation for the right patient, even teenagers. Learn about the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure. For example, unsatisfactory scarring is one of the potential complications. Make sure you also understand that further surgery may be necessary in the future.
