Weight gain after breast reduction
Breast size with weight gain
It is true that with significant weight gain there will be an increase in the size of the breast, even after breast reduction. The amount of gain will depend on the fat tissue within the breast which increases with age. With smaller weight fluctuations, 35 pounds you may not notice any differences.

Breast reduction and weight gain and loss
Despite having a breast reduction, your breasts will still be weight sensitive in either direction. Hopefully you weren't overreduced because I have recently treated 3 patients who had reductions elsewhere 20 years ago and now needed augmentations.
Breast Reduction and Weight Gain?
Thank you for the question.
There are a lot of myths surrounding weight gain and its effects after plastic surgical procedures. Suffice it to say that if you were to gain significant weight your breasts may increase in size again. It is not unusual for patients to request a second breast reduction procedure after their juvenile breast hypertrophy has been treated with an initial breast reduction procedure.
I would recommend maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a stable weight through diet and exercise.
I hope this helps.
