Breast Reduction and Weight Loss?
Congratulations on your decision to proceed with breast reduction surgery; this operation tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations we perform. It will be in your best interests, for many reasons, to achieve your long-term stable weight prior to proceeding.

Losing Weight Before Breast Reduction
It is a good idea to be close to your ideal weight that you feel you can comfortably maintain, prior to surgery. Losing 20 pounds after surgery can change the results. Also losing the extra weight may help alleviate some of your back pain. Good luck!
Weight loss and breast reduction
As with nearly all surgery that Plastic Surgeons do, if you know that you are going to lose weight, lose it prior to surgery. If you lose the weight after surgery, it will change you results. This applies to breast reduction, tummy tuck, liposuction, facelifts, etc.
