Breast Lift Following Weight Loss

Woman Covering BreastsYour weight loss journey can dramatically change the look of your body. Not only are you lighter, leaner, and more fit, but you likely have sagging skin. Coming to the end of your weight loss journey can feel bittersweet. On one hand, you have shed the weight and are more healthy than you’ve ever been. On the other hand, excess skin has developed, masking the new contours of your body. Many women don’t think of the changes they will experience during their weight loss, and you may find yourself unhappy with your breast appearance after you have met your goal weight.

You may find that a breast lift can restore the appearance of your breasts following recent weight loss.

Why Do Your Breasts Change Shape?

You may have anticipated losing breast volume during your weight loss and been ok with that, but what you probably didn’t think about was the way your breasts would hang low and appear empty. Throughout your weight loss journey, you will likely lose fat from your breasts, but unfortunately, you can’t regain the elasticity of your breast tissue. If you have laxity in your breasts, losing fat can leave them looking saggy and deflated.

How Can a Breast Lift Help?

Breast lift surgery can restore a firmer appearance to the breasts. By lifting and repositioning the breast tissue, you can achieve a more youthful breast appearance. Internal sutures are used to hold your breast tissue in a higher position and can provide long-term support, which can slow future ptosis of the breasts. During your breast lift, Mr Gwanmesia can reshape your breasts and reposition the nipple-areola complexes that have slowly shifted lower onto the breasts over time.

Improving Volume and Position

You may be satisfied with the size of your breasts and only want to restore their position. However, you may find that while you lost weight, you also lost the fat that provided attractive volume to the breasts. You can choose to combine a breast augmentation with your breast lift for fuller, firmer breasts.

If you want to improve the shape and feel of your breasts following weight loss, schedule your breast lift consultation with Mr Gwanmesia. You can call us at 02074741300 or contact us online.
