Can Losing Weight Affect My Breasts?

After losing a significant amount of weight, you deserve to be proud of your accomplishment and see the results on your body. Unfortunately, weight loss can cause some cosmetic concerns, including changes to the breasts. Specifically, weight loss can cause lost volume, lost shape, and sagging of the breasts. 

While losing weight can alter the appearance of your breasts, there are multiple cosmetic treatment options that can restore your full, perky breasts. The breast lift procedure, in particular, can counteract the effect of weight loss on the breasts to give you the appearance that you desire. 

Why Do Breasts Change After Weight Loss?

The breasts are mainly composed of fat tissue. So, when you lose fat tissue in other areas of the body due to weight loss, you also lose fat tissue in the breasts. This causes the breasts to shrink in size, leading to loose, sagging skin. 

What is The Breast Lift Procedure?

The breast lift procedure is used to remove excess skin and restore the position of the breasts. When the excess skin around the breasts is removed, the sagging or drooping appearance will be eliminated. Dr. Roach at the Bayside Center for Plastic Surgery will also raise the remaining breast tissue so that the breasts sit higher on the chest.  

Breast Augmentation

If, in addition to removing excess skin, you also want to enhance the size of your breasts after weight loss, you may want to consider breast augmentation surgery. In this procedure, implants are used to increase the size of the breasts to your liking while removing excess skin and lifting the breasts as needed. This cosmetic procedure can give women the fully sexy breasts that they want after weight loss.
