My Breasts Look Deflated After Massive Weight Loss. What Are My Options?

Losing a lot of weight can take its toll on the breasts. Once large and perky, the breasts can appear deflated, saggy and droopy. You have options. Breast surgery can reshape and restore the breasts. You’ve worked hard to lose that weight. Now it’s time to finish your transformation by reshaping your breasts. Love your body!

Breast Surgeries after Weight Loss

Cosmetic surgeries are always highly individualized procedures. During your consultation, Dr. Sajjadian will examine your breasts and work to create a surgical plan for your body. For many women, a few different surgeries will be required after weight loss. Often, a breast lift is used to remove excess skin and reposition sagging breasts. Breast augmentation can restore lost volume. Combined, these two procedures can eliminate the sagging, deflated look that is so common after weight loss.

Let’s take a quick look at both of these procedures.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery can lift the breasts, restoring them to their proper place on the body and improving their shape and projection. This is critical in many women after weight loss. The excess fat can stretch out the breast skin and once the weight is lost can leave the breasts looking loose and deflated.

Dr. Sajjadian utilizes several different incision styles for breast lift surgeries. He will choose the incision best-suited to your specific situation. If desired, the areola can be resized at the same time. A breast lift can be performed on its own with stunning results. Your breast size may be smaller than it was originally, but as you’ve lost a lot of weight, they may still be proportionate to your body.

Breast lifts are often performed simultaneously to breast augmentation. Don’t make the mistake of skipping the lift and getting only implants. Sagging breasts are best remedied by a lift. Placing implants without a lift won’t yield the same stunning aesthetic result. Often it creates a larger, but sagging breast appearance. If you’ve lost weight, lift is most important and then add implants if desired.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is often needed after weight loss. Losing weight can cause you to lose volume in the breasts. Breast implants can restore this volume and assist in creating an ideal breast shape. Dr. Sajjadian can typically perform breast augmentation at the same time as your breast lift reducing both your expense and your needed recovery period.

Saline and silicone implants are both great options after massive weight loss. Often the incisions used for your lift can be utilized for your augmentation.
