How will weight gain or loss affect the results of my breast lift?

Any significant weight changes after your breast uplift can affect the results of your procedure. In terms of aesthetics, major weight loss will likely affect your results more than weight gain. However, effects vary from patient to patient. It's important you're at your goal weight prior to having surgery to optimise the results of the procedure.

Further weight loss after surgery could decrease the size of the breast and leave you with excess skin leading to further sagging of the breasts. Weight gain is likely to increase the size of the breasts affecting the shape and overall appearance of the breasts. Discuss your expectations with your surgeon who will be able to agree on a goal weight with you and determine likely outcomes of the breast uplift surgery.
