A breast reduction can help you achieve smaller, lighter, and better proportioned breasts. The results of breast reduction often leave you feeling more comfortable and confident in their appearance for years to come. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and a relatively stable weight, you will tend to have a more pleasing long-term result.
However, a few factors can alter your results:
- Pregnancy. Pregnancy and breastfeeding change the consistency and shape of a woman’s breast. After having children, your breasts may sag and appear less full. A breast lift, with or without implants, or a more extensive mommy makeover, including tummy tuck, can restore more of your pre-pregnancy appearance.
- Weight gain. If you gain weight, you are likely to add some fullness to your breasts. In some individuals, this can lead to the need for a second breast reduction. Therefore, maintenance of weight can be an important factor in the quality of your breast reduction over the years.
- Weight loss. If you lose a significant amount of weight, you may experience sagging and loss of volume in your breasts. A breast lift or breast augmentation may then improve breast shape and/or add volume to your breasts.
