11-year-old girl with rapidly growing massive breasts undergoes successful surgery
A class five pupil from Roman Catholic primary school, Mamie Sam, is currently recovering after she underwent a successful surgery, to reduce her huge breasts.
The young girl from Sierra Leone apparently revealed that her breasts started growing bigger sometime last year after she accompanied her grandmother and a few women to fish somewhere in Segbwema, Sierra Leone.
Her condition is however something that has been witnessed before. It is a rare medical condition of the breast connective tissues. The indication is a breast weight that exceeds approximately 3% of the total body weight.
Having a small body, the girl was helped out by well wishers who paid for her breast reduction surgery and according to a Nigerian tabloid the young girl is currently doing much better with normal sized boobs.
