Breast Augmentation After Bariatric Surgery: Is It Worthwhile? By Tijuana Bariatrics on June 23, 2018

A breast implantWhen you gain a lot of weight, your skin will stretch and expand to accommodate the added mass. When you lose weight, your skin will be able to shrink back just a little bit, but there is bound to be loose skin. These issues with drooping, sagging, and stretch marks after weight loss are all art of the nature of skin elasticity.

Thankfully, bariatric surgery patients can count on our Tijuana, Mexico team to perform breast augmentation, which will increase breast size and improve breast appearance. Let’s consider the ways that breast augmentation can help complete a weight loss surgery patient’s weight loss and wellness journey.

The Effects of Weight Loss on Your Breasts

With the breasts, the drooping and sagging can be quite pronounced following weight loss. This is especially true for women who have large breasts and/or were obese or super obese.

The only way to help reverse the drooping and sagging of the breasts is to perform cosmetic surgery. Breast augmentation is a good option as the implants help improve the shape and firmness of the breasts, and give the bustling a perkier appearance overall.

The Benefits of Breast Implants After Bariatric Surgery

The key benefits of breast augmentation after bariatric surgery are as follows:

  • Improved breast size
  • Reduced drooping and sagging
  • Better overall body contour
  • Enhanced self-confidence

Combined Breast Augmentation and Lift Surgery

Keep in mind that it is also possible to perform a combined breast augmentation and lift surgery. This procedure focuses on improving the perkiness of the breasts and reversing the drooping and sagging. Rather than just placing breast implants, this procedure also removed some of the loose skin to achieve the final cosmetic results.

Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation

Good candidates for breast augmentation or combined lift and augmentation are women who would like to increase the size of their breasts. The amount of drooping and sagging will determine if implants alone are sufficient or if a lift/augmentation is more ideal.

Candidates for breast enhancement surgery should be in good overall health and know all of the risks and benefits involved. We can discuss implant size, composition, and placement during the consultation process.

Timing for Breast Augmentation After Bariatric Surgery

It’s important to properly time the breast augmentation surgery following major weight loss. This will help ensure the results are optimal, and that you have lost all or most of the weight from the bariatric procedure. Typically, this means planning a breast augmentation for around two years after the bariatric procedure.

As part of the bariatric surgery consultation, we can go over the need for cosmetic surgery in full detail. The will give you a good idea of what’s ahead.

Total Body Lift Options Are Available

Keep in mind that breast augmentation is not the only cosmetic surgery procedure to consider after major weight loss. Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lift, arm lift, and other body sculpting procedures are helpful. These will tighten the skin and get rid of unwanted drooping. We can go over all of these surgical matters in more detail during your visit to the practice.
