Breast Lift Surgery & Weight Loss
Dramatic weight loss following a breast lift (or mastopexy) may affect the appearance of your breasts, and Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim recommends that patients be at or near their ideal weight prior to undergoing a breast lift procedure.
Of course, the effect of weight loss after a breast lift procedure varies widely depending on the individual and the amount of fatty tissue in the breasts. Women who have substantially more fatty tissue in their breasts have a greater tendency to see their breast size and shape fluctuate with their weight. Those with less fatty tissue in their breasts seem to be less affected by weight change.
In general, losing a substantial amount of weight following your breast lift may cause your breasts to droop noticeably or have less volume. If the weight loss causes extreme changes in the size and shape of your breasts, breast revision surgery may be necessary to correct the effects.
Being at or near your ideal weight prior to breast lift surgery can help provide a more predictable and desirable appearance, as well as reduce your risk of complications during and after the breast lift procedure.
