Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss

Breast Lift

If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift can help lift, firm, and reshape them. In a breast lift, your surgeon removes excess skin and tissue, and repositions the nipple higher on your chest. Some people also get breast implants to improve their shape.

It's possible that later you may need a touch-up procedure. For instance, if the breasts are slightly different after breast lift surgery, the surgeon may need to reposition the nipple.

 

Should You Have Plastic Surgery After Weight Loss?

You are likely a good candidate for plastic surgery after weight loss if:

  • Your weight is stable.
  • You're in good health.
  • You don't smoke.
  • You have a positive outlook and realistic goals for the results.
  • You are committed to proper nutrition, fitness, and an overall healthy lifestyle.

If you're a woman planning to get pregnant, it's best to wait until after you've had children before having any of these plastic surgeries after a weight loss.
