Boob jobs on rise among girls aged 11
An increasing number of obese American girls, as young as 11, are undergoing breast reduction surgery, a new report has revealed.
The research found that more than 100 young girls have had boob jobs in the past five years after suffering severe back pain, the Daily Star reported.
Although health experts have put the problem down to a rise in obesity, the Department of Health figures have sparked concerns that the girls are too young to have the procedure because their bodies have not finished developing.
"Obesity on top of large breast size would make the back pain worse," Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, said.
"The solution is not to get fat.
"I wouldn't consider breast reduction in children," Fry added.
