When it comes to cosmetic surgery, age is often a common concern for younger patients seeking a breast procedure. Younger patients may wish to address overly large breasts, asymmetrical breasts, or enhance breast size to fit their body’s proportion. Prior to undergoing a procedure, it is important for young patients and their families to always uphold a cosmetic procedure as real surgery and to take necessary steps in planning a safe treatment plan.

Our Athens plastic surgeon, Dr. Ed Pittman always reminds patients to conduct thorough research, maintain realistic expectations, and demonstrate emotional and physical maturity and growth. Many young patients who request breast augmentation often have breast asymmetry where one breast is larger or positioned higher than the other. For patients who have overly large breasts that cause back and neck pain, bra strap indentions, or self-image concerns, breast reduction surgery can be performed on young patients to relieve these issues.

For younger patients who may also wish to treat more minor concerns such as acne and scarring, the staff at Pittman Plastic Surgery offers chemical peels as a non-surgical alternative to address skin conditions. Medical grade skin care products are also available to maintain healthy skin and reduce the appearance of acne. Regardless of age, Dr. Pittman and Dr. Ski will meet individually with each patient during consultation to discuss their concerns, answer all questions, and understand cosmetic goals to make sure you are confident and well educated prior to your procedure.
