Losing weight is good for your health, but it can also cause weight loss in some areas that women don't want to lose the weight. This includes the breasts. After you've lost a considerable amount of weight, you may notice that your breasts seem less full or saggy. If you're disturbed by this change in your body, there are things you can do about it. Here's what you should know.
What Do You Want?
Regardless of what you want, you'll likely need surgery to change the look of your breasts. However, the type or types of surgery you undergo will depend upon what you're looking for.
Some women are content to have the perkiness of their breasts restored, even if it means having a smaller-sized chest. This is more often the case for women who had very large breasts prior to losing weight and are grateful to have lost some of the strain on their backs and shoulders.
However, it's also possible to restore the perkiness while also regaining your former size. So you should give some thought to how you want to look when everything is said and done before consulting with a surgeon.
Whether you just want a youthful upright look again or want to regain your larger breasts, you'll likely need a breast lift.
Breast lifts remove excess tissue from the breast and then connect the two ends again to create a higher, perkier appearance. The lift is usually necessary even if you're going to get breast implants because oftentimes the breast tissue is damaged from excessive stretching. This is more likely if you have stretch marks on your breasts, as this is a sign of damaged tissues. This kind of skin isn't strong enough to readily support breast implants, so it's highly likely that your surgeon will recommend this procedure to you.
The next step is augmentation if you've decided that you want to have larger breasts that more closely resemble what you used to have or go even larger than that.
Often, breast lifts and augmentation can be performed at the same time to save time and reduce the amount of recovery you undergo from the procedures.
When you undergo breast augmentation, you'll not only need to decide how large you want your breasts to be but also decide what you want their general shape to be like. This is determined by the type of implant you choose, like saline, silicone, or gummy bear variety.
If you want to restore your former look, talk to a cosmetic surgeon and get a consultation.
