How Weight Loss Affects Breast Augmentation

With breast augmentation comes significant changes in your shape and figure. While these changes are welcome and stunning, some patients worry about potential weight loss and whether this will affect their breast augmentation in the future. While you won’t affect the actual implants, weight loss can alter the breasts. Here are some things to consider with weight loss and breast augmentation.

If you have more natural breast tissue around your implants, weight loss can diminish the natural breast tissue and take away a cup size or less. However, weight loss will not directly affect the actual implants or the volume they provide to the chest. If you lose a significant amount of weight, it may cause them to hang a bit lower, but this can be fixed with a breast lift that will support the implants. Healthy weight loss is fine if you have breast implants and should not affect the appearance of your breast augmentation.

At Northwest Face & Body, the providers can help you navigate healthy weight loss while maintaining the appearance of your implants. Breast augmentation is an incredible surgery that provides stunning results and can adapt to healthy weight loss without altering its aesthetic.
