Will My Breast Implants Change if I Lose Weight?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales

There's no denying that losing weight is a great way to improve your fitness and health. But what do breast implants feel like when you lose weight? Should you be concerned about potential changes in your breast size or shape? These are common questions many women have when considering breast augmentation.

Dr. Rolando Morales explains that while implants should not look or feel any different if you lose weight, patients should be aware of potential changes if they plan on losing 50 – 100 pounds or more. Call Morales Plastic Surgery to meet with our board-certified plastic surgeon and see if you are a candidate for breast implant surgery in Houston, TX.

When should I get breast implants?

The timing of breast implant surgery varies for each individual and depends on personal preferences, body type, and overall health. Some women choose implants because of issues such as small or deflated breasts, asymmetrical breasts, or breasts that are affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Breast implants are a good choice for correcting your figure and improving your self-confidence. Dr. Morales recommends women get implants when they are near their goal weight or are finished having children, although this is not required. This is because weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can alter the shape of your breasts and cause them to sag more than usual.

What if I lose weight after getting implants?

Our implants are designed to remain the same regardless of your weight. So, you can lose weight any time after breast augmentation without having to worry about changes in your appearance. However, if you lose a significant amount of weight (50 – 100 pounds or more), the natural tissue around the implants may sag and droop, causing your breasts to look different.

What do breast implants feel like when you lose weight?

Generally, implants should not feel any different when you lose weight. They are designed to mimic natural breast tissue, so weight loss should not impact their texture or sensation. However, everyone is unique and some may experience slight differences in the way their implants move and feel after significant weight loss.

Before undergoing surgery, it's important to have realistic expectations and understand that your body may change over time due to different factors such as weight fluctuations. Patients should communicate openly with Dr. Morales in Houston, TX, to ensure the best results.

What if I want to change my breasts after weight loss?

If you have lost a significant amount of weight and are unhappy with your breasts, options are available. You may undergo a revision surgery to adjust the position or size of your implants. A breast lift can also help remove excess skin and reshape the tissue so the breasts seem more youthful.

How long do breast implants last?

Another common concern for women considering breast augmentation is the longevity of their implants. So how long do breast implants last? While there is no set expiration date, most implants stay in place for 20 years or longer! Dr. Morales recommends having your implants assessed every few years to make sure they are still providing excellent results.
