The Maitreya is a relatively petite body to begin with. It's very easy to make a teen-like avatar with it.

The most effective way to alter an avatar's apparent age is by picking a head with the right facial features.

And size. A teen head will be slightly larger in proportion.

For some, maybe, for a majority, not really. Or, at least, not by very much at all.Ā By the time most humans reach the ages of 14-16 bone structure is pretty close to being set and it is the soft tissue that begins it's change-spurt. What @Wulfie ReanimatorĀ says will be the most profound effect as far as SL Avatars go: it will be the shape of facial features (in the soft, fleshy bit) that helps determine age in a visual way.

A couple examples are the Catwa Steffi head and one from Ca/Eg <?> - but also with the right skin, one that does not add a lot of shadow under the cheek or create a squarish jaw-line as most teens still have a relatively softer-looking face.

I don't claim to be an expert in the subject, other than to say I deal with human imagery in my day job a lot and have studiedĀ human proportions in-depth (there is actually a mathematical relation to "within normal natural limits" and so on.). :)
