A teen has revealed she begged her parents to get her 28EE boobs reduced at 16 as she "hated" her large chest.
Lilli Maki, now 18, said she used to be "a huge target for cruel taunts and unwanted attention from older guys" because of her breasts.
She also says her large boobs used to cause her constant pain.
The 5ft teen from, Washington, US, got the $10,000 (£7,000) procedure done at just 17 to get her 28EE breasts surgically reduced to 28B.
This saw surgeons remove 15lb of fat from her chest – and Lilli’s self-esteem has skyrocketed ever since.
The teen says she feels like “brand new person because the weight was literally taken off (her) shoulders”.
Lilli said older men used to make unwanted comments on her chest,
She also claims creeps as old as 50 would make advances on her when she was underage.
She said: “Having big boobs made me a huge target for unwanted attention from older guys particularly.
“They tried to be friendly or tell me: 'You're so mature for your age'."
She said she hated her body so much at that time, that sometimes comments like this could be a confidence boost.

The teen added: "It was so gross and uncomfortable but at the same time, I found my body disgusting so hearing that anyone liked it almost made me feel good.
She also said she was bullied by a group of boys in her school, who even made a video mocking her body and sent it her classmates.
Lilli said: “I remember being the butt of everyone's jokes – them mocking me about how I looked.
“That same group of boys continuously messaged me and harassed me on my Instagram pictures.”
The teen had 32DDD breasts by the time she was 15, with the weight of her chest putting tremendous strain on her back and shoulders.
She recalled: “I had constant pain in my shoulders, my lower and upper back.
"My neck was constantly hurting from holding myself up all day. It was exhausting.
“Not only was it draining for my body, but for my mind as well
"I couldn't get away with wearing clothes most girls my age were wearing, and if I did, I got called names – not just from kids but from adults too.
“Physically, it was hard for me to enjoy being active.
"Running and cheerleading were the two main activities I had done, and I was never comfortable. I constantly felt held back by my chest.”
Lilli asked her parents Nona and Mat, both 45, if she could have breast reduction surgery when she was 16.
Then in April 2020, she booked her first consultation.
She commented: “I'd always wanted one, I think since I was a sophomore and realised they weren't going anywhere.
"At the time right before my surgery I measured 28EE.”
The teen had her reduction surgery in August last year, and it cost around $10,000 but was mostly covered by insurance.

Lilli says she's enjoying athletics now after the surgery.
She revealed: “I'm not breathless anymore is one of the main things and I can run without having to wear two bras.
"It felt like I was wearing a straitjacket and having to be active while wearing that is crazy.
“I never in a million years thought I would buy a bikini in an XS, that would fit both my body and my boobs.
“I have a new found confidence and appreciation for my body. My self esteem and confidence is the ultimate gift I've gotten from my surgery.”
