Breast Development – Stages In Teen Girls

By on January 31, 2011

Breast Development – Stages In Teen GirlsOnce you step into your teens you are most likely to undergo a major transition in your life- a change from a girl to a woman. This would involve a couple of bodily changes wherein you experience your menarche i.e. your first period but at the same time you also experience the development of your breasts.

At this time you feel confused and filled with doubt and anxiety and a lot more questions. Besides being a mere attraction to the opposite gender at later stages breast serves as one of the most important biological functions of feeding your child with milk when your body becomes capable of producing it.

The development of breasts is something that is quite normal and a natural aspect of a woman’s life. Every human is born with the basic breast tissues, nipple and areola but it is only in the women that it further develops and not men. Usually, the development of breast begins approximately a year prior to the menarche. There are five stages towards the development of the breast among teens.

The first stage is of breast development where the breasts still appear child like i.e. flat where, the areola is nothing but simply brownish spots. The first stage continues right until the girl is about 10 years of age or less.


But, she may enter the second stage of breast development between the age group of 8 to 13 years. In this stage small buds begin to form in preparation of the ductal tissues of the breast. At the same time the areola also increases in size and the entire breast seems raised. Obesity may be one of the factors that trigger an early development of breast in women.

The third stage usually occurs around the age of 12 to 14 years wherein the breasts seem slightly enlarged. At this stage some amount of pain or discomfort is experienced. The fourth stage entails the mound of the breasts becoming more prominent.

The skin around that area may stretch in order to make up with the growing mound but it will fade off overtime. The fifth and the last stage involves the breast becoming fully mature and to its normal size. This stage usually extends from the age of 14 to 18 years.
