Can breast reduction surgery help me lose weight?

Breast reduction surgery is not a type of weight loss surgery. While some weight is removed from the breasts, other areas of fat on the stomach and back remain untouched during the procedure.

Liposuction can be done in addition to breast reduction to reduce the look of unwanted areas of fat. Keep in mind that this will increase the price of the total procedure and increase the recovery time.

Some breast reduction patients do report that it is much easier to exercise after healing from breast reduction. The increased range of motion and mobility related to smaller breasts encourages many patients to get active and lose weight by eating healthfully and exercising regularly.
