How Weight Loss Could Affect the Results of Your Breast Enhancement Procedure

  • Written by News Company


Women make the decision to undergo breast enhancement for a number of reasons, with pregnancy and weight loss being two of the most common.

Whether you are interested in breast augmentation or want a full mommy makeover, it’s important for your weight to be stable if you want to maintain the results of your surgery.

Weight Loss or Gain & Breast Enhancement

During your consultation, your surgeon will take you through the ins and outs of the breast augmentation process and get clear on your specific goals. You will also need to make some decision on the size, shape and placement of your implants. It’s during this consultation that you should discuss the effects of weight loss on your results.

According to Dr Reddy, a Central Coast plastic surgeon, patients should be at or near their ideal weight before surgery and lead a healthy lifestyle after their procedure if they want to maintain their results.

Your current body shape and weight will also affect the volume of your breast implants. Women with smaller frames won’t be able to select implants that are too large. Shapelier women would look better with slightly larger implants because it will suit their frame.

Losing or gaining a few kilograms is not going to make a big difference to your results but losing or gaining a significant amount of weight will. If you had to lose a lot of weight, your implants will appear larger and look disproportionate to the rest of your body. Your breasts will also droop and look less full after dramatic weight loss.

Women who have chosen subglandular implant placement have a higher risk of their implants showing if they had to lose a lot of weight.

Why Breasts Change after Weight Loss or Gain

Pregnancy, medications and hormones can all change the size of your breasts and since your breasts are made up of fatty and glandular tissue, it’s easy to see why the shape and size would change with weight gain or loss.

Women who have higher volumes of fatty tissue in their breasts are more likely to notice a change if they had to lose or gain weight.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with losing a healthy amount of weight, provided you aren’t yo-yo dieting. Yo-yo diet cycles can have a negative effect on your health, which also won’t put you in the best position for surgery.

If you are interested in breast enhancement, take steps to reach your ideal weight in a healthy way and make lifestyle changes that will be easy to maintain after your surgery too.

If you struggle with weight gain and loss, work with a dietician and a personal trainer to develop new lifestyle habits that you can easily carry forward into the future.

If you are worried about the effects of weight loss or gain on your breast augmentation results, get some professional advice and recommendations from your surgeon during your consultation.
