Christina writes, “I am 15 and I hate my chest. My cup size varies from from DD to E. To make it even worse, my left breast is a lot bigger than my right. I know that a slight difference is normal but there’s a huge difference in my case. Also my breasts are not perky and I have huge areolas – huge as in with a diameter of about 9 cm (little bit less than 4 inches). What’s wrong with me?? Isn’t there anything that can get done?”
Let us take each part of your question one at a time:
- You have not indicated if you are also overweight but if you are, you will need to lose weight – overweight/obese women have large chests. Chances are that your breasts will also reduce in size with weight loss though sagging will be an issue you will need to correct with a breast lift. If you are within your acceptable weight range, though, then clearly you need to consult with a plastic surgeon, particularly if you have back and shoulder pain. A simple solution for you would be to reduce your breast size, but in most cases doctors would ask you to wait till you are fully developed. However, since yours is a medical condition, chances are that your health insurance company would pay for it.
- The two breasts are not of exact same size and it appears that you notice the difference even more because of your large size, but only a doctor can check to find out if there is a medical condition in your case.
- Regarding perkiness, it is a problem that almost all women with a C cup or larger face, and large breasts sag almost immediately due to their weight – no matter what your age is.
- I am not sure if large areola is a medical condition – even women with small breasts can have large areolas. If there is nothing else wrong, the size itself should not be a reason for concern.
