This might mean adopting and sticking to a regular exercise routine and practicing healthy eating habits. However, many women express concerns that weight loss after breast augmentation will negatively affect their results.

The short answer to whether or not weight fluctuations will impact your results is that’s complicated. For a more in-depth look, read on.

Factors to Consider

Every woman’s body is going to respond differently to weight loss and exercise. If this is something that you’re concerned about, it’s a good idea to talk with your cosmetic surgeon. Generally speaking, there are a few different factors that might determine whether or not the results of your breast augmentation after weight loss will change.

First, consider how much weight you have lost or plan to lose. Typically, a change in 10 or 15 pounds isn’t going to affect the way your implants look or feel, whereas massive weight loss could create a sagging appearance.

Whether or not weight loss will affect your breast implants will depend on several factors.

Secondly, many women who opt for a breast enhancement procedure have small amounts of natural breast tissue. Thus, losing weight isn’t likely to drastically affect the size or shape of your breasts when there is minimal fatty tissue to lose.

Through a breast lift, your cosmetic surgeon can remove and tighten loose, sagging skin. A combination breast augmentation and lift can simultaneously address both the size and position of your breasts.
