Losing an abundant amount of weight is a rather large accomplishment. Whether it’s via weight loss surgery, or simply by your own doing, it’s an achievement everyone should be proud of. However, with massive weight loss also comes a whole new look to your body. Procedures to take off extra skin are usually a must. Yet, there is another procedure that is done quite often too: breast reduction.
A new study suggests that women who have their breasts reduced after their weight loss are more likely to be happy with their results. Of course, this doesn’t mean that all women should or must wait for a breast reduction. In fact, large breasts can cause pain and even make it hard to exercise. However, the chances are much higher for disappointment in shape and size of the reduced breasts once a woman reaches their ideal weight.
In a recent study, more than a third of the women who had their breast reduced prior to weight loss were unhappy with the final result. Half of the women planned to undergo a breast augmentation to find their perfect breast size and shape to suit their new bodies. Many more said they would if it was covered by insurance. A third of the women who did not opt for a breast reduction before weight loss were unhappy with their overly large breast and half of the women said they were planning on having a breast reduction, while others said they would if they could afford it.
The general consensus is that you’re most likely better off with a breast reduction after weight loss, though some women were perfectly happy with their breasts before and after. It truly varies from patient to patient and must be talked about extensively with their doctor so that the best option can be ascertained.
