Breast ironing is a form of body modification practiced in parts of Cameron. Unlike other body modifications which are cultural or are believed to increase beauty, breast ironing is use for young women’s safety.

Breast ironing is believed to lower physical attractiveness in young girls. This is believed to reduce the risk of rape and early marriage. Breast ironing is performed on a young girl when she reaches puberty. A heated object will be pressed hard against the young girl’s breast in order to stop the breast’s formation. Side effects of breast ironing include pain, tissue damage, breast cancer, and problems with milk production. Several organizations are trying to stop this practice.
