Breast augmentation and weight loss
One of the most common questions asked is if the weight loss will affect breast augmentation results. To put this in simple terms, breast implants are not affected by the fluctuation in weight, but the breast tissue may get affected by it. Women may choose to undergo breast augmentation as a part of a rejuvenation package like a ‘mommy makeover’ plan to improve their overall appearance and to boost their self confidence. Since building muscles or losing weight is very common after breast augmentation, many wonder if that will have any impact on their results.
While weight loss will affect the results after augmentation, it is not easy to say at which level. Surgeons recommend to sustain a stable weight before undergoing breast augmentation. If there is too much breast tissue due to losing weight, opting for larger implants is the right choice if there are plans to continue losing weight. However, in case of failing to follow through with such plan after getting implements, the result will be a bit larger breasts than originally desired.
The level of breast volume that will be lost with weight loss depends on the level of fat percentage in breasts. There are women who may have high proportion of fat compared to tissue in their breasts. This means that they will have high fluctuations of breast volume when their body weight changes. For instance, if a person did not have large breasts before, that would mean that there is not too much fat in her breasts, so the weight loss cannot affect breast volume too drastically.
What's the verdict?
In reality, it would take a significant amount of losing weight to have any impact on the breasts and implants. The main deciding factors are the fatty tissue present in breast and the ratio of glandular tissue. Since it is not possible to predict what will happen, it is advised to talk with surgeon whenever considering weight loss and unsure how it will affect the implants. The volume of the implants may not change with weight loss, but the shape may be affected.
