If you've lost a lot of weight in recent times, chances are you're proud of yourself, but not necessarily happy with the way that your body looks. This may extend to the breasts, as well. If you're dealing with saggy breasts after losing weight and have considered a breast lift, you should go for it. Here's three reasons why.
Improves Your Ego
Nothing brings down your ego after losing weight like dealing with loose, baggy skin. It's a constant reminder that while you may be the weight you want to be now, you weren't in the past.
Loose skin—especially in the breasts—can make your clothes fit funny and bring down your sense of self-esteem. Why put up with this problem when you can do something about it?
Chafing is a big problem for people who have lost dramatic amounts of weight. When skin rubs against itself, it can create chafing, or at its worst, it can develop full-on rashes and skin sores. This includes the breasts.
Wearing a bra all the time may be one potential option to help prevent this from happening to you, but it's not something that all women want to do. It's not exactly practical to have one on 24/7, and even the time that you spend in the shower could be potentially harmful if your breasts are rubbing on surrounding tissues.
Further Reduces Weight
Skin weighs more than you might think and, unfortunately, it can be a stubborn bit of weight that's impossible to get rid of after you lose weight. A certain amount of skin tends to be absorbed back into the body after weight loss, but typically not all of it. If you've been waiting and hoping that your breasts would bounce back and lose their excess skin after losing weight, it might not happen.
Having surgery to lift and remove the excess tissue can help you to lose even more weight. The exact amount depends upon how much weight you've lost, how large your breasts are and were, and how much loose skin you have. However, you can all but guarantee that after you have the skin removed and are fully recovered from your surgery, your weight will have diminished even further.
Losing weight shouldn't be something that causes bodily harm or makes you feel bad about yourself. Take the last step you need to get the look that you wanted all along and sign up for a breast lift.
