Weight Loss and Breast Augmentation

Morristown women should know that weight loss may or may not actually impact their breast implants. It really does all depend on your body and your breasts. But here are some things to consider.

  • The risk of “rippling” – For women who want to lose weight but have breast implants, the concern is that the lost weight will make your implants look bad. Women who lose a lot of weight after getting breast implants can reveal more of the implant, which produces a rippling effect.
  • How much weight do you want to lose? If you’re average size and looking to lose 10 to 20 pounds, then you may notice some breast sagging if your breasts tended to change with weight loss before surgery.
  • Think about the past – Think about how you have lost weight in the past. Did you lose a lot of weight in your breasts or was it primarily in other areas of your body? Thinking about how your unique body reacts to weight loss could give you an idea of how your breast augmentation or reduction may change with weight loss.
  • Implant placement – The placement of your implant under the muscle or on top of it could also impact how your breasts look after losing weight.
  • Weight loss could improve appearance – If you do lose weight, it could help your breast augmentation look better. By slimming down other parts of your body it could help your implants stand out and look fuller after your breast augmentation.
