7 lb Weight Loss After Breast Lift

   In general, a 7 lb weight loss should have minimal consequences for a breast lift.  The greater the weight loss, the more sagging that can be anticipated.

Will a 7 pound Weight Loss Significantly Affect the Results of Breast Lift?

It depends.

Each individual will lose weight from different parts of the body. Each woman's breast has a different composition of breast tissue and adipose (fat ) tissue.  Seven pounds may be a trivial amount of loss for someone weighing 200 lb, but significant if you weight 100. 

A photo would help, and some idea of height and weight. But even with all that, the answer will be a guess.

Thanks, best wishes.

Weight Loss and Change in Breast Lift Results?

Thank you for the question. No, generally speaking, a 7 pound weight loss will not cause significant changes  of the breasts after breast lift surgery.  I would suggest that you proceed with the weight loss if it makes sense for your overall health status.

Best wishes.
