How Weight Loss Can Affect Your Breast Implants

Breast augmentation can be a life-changing enhancement. If performed by a skilled surgeon, this operation can improve your figure safely, and be followed by a quick recovery. Vancouver plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Pugash, stresses that breast implants should be considered only if the surgery fits your particular goals and lifestyle. Breast implants can be an excellent choice if made as part of a larger transformative experience to improve your overall health.

Since breast surgery often accompanies a nutritional plan and workout regimen to improve health and body contours, the question often arises—how can weight loss affect my implants? Dr. Pugash will discuss this and other issues with you as you consider breast augmentation. In the meantime, he has provided this article with useful information as you consider your options.

The Concerns

The proportion of fat tissue in your breasts will determine how much weight loss will affect your breast appearance. The greater the proportion of fat in the breast, the more they will change along with body weight. This amount can fluctuate up or down, depending on the intensity of your workout regimen. For breast implants to deliver the best outcome, they must sustain the right ratio of breast volume with glandular tissue. Some Vancouver women have more breast fat than others, and weight loss will affect those patients more noticeably. However, most women who elect breast augmentation have little fat in their breast tissue, and weight loss has less of an effect.

We Will Work with You

Dr. Pugash may recommend that you stabilize your weight before surgery, since a significant weight change after surgery may downgrade your results. After your augmentation, you should continue to consult with him to ensure your nutrition and workout routines are best suited for a quick and successful recovery.
