A breast lift and augmentation after losing a massive amount of weight can restore your breasts to a youthful, plump, restored appearance. A breast lift resolves sagging breasts by elevating the breast mound to a more youthful position, with a custom augmentation to restore lost volume.

The effects of weight loss

After losing a massive amount of weight, it can be difficult to fully enjoy your thinner body when you are left with sagging, deflated looking breasts. Your skin may not have the capacity to bounce back after massive weight loss. Many women who have undergone bariatric surgery or have lost a dramatic amount of weight through diet and exercise are dismayed with the condition of their breasts, which appear flat and drooping, with nipples stretched or pointing downwards. Fortunately, this can be corrected with a breast lift, with fullness restored with an augmentation – allowing you to completely enjoy your weight loss success!

Our patients tell us this is a very rewarding experience. No more feeling embarrassed by your breasts – you can wear plunging necklines or swimsuits with total confidence.

When will I see the results?

You can expect to see beautiful changes immediately after surgery, although the full results will require several months. In the early stages of healing, swelling and bruising is expected. At about the three to four week mark, the swelling and bruising fades away, and the incisions are healed. You will enjoy your beautiful, rejuvenated breasts, with initial results achieved at six weeks, which continue to improve over the months ahead as the scars fade and blend with your skin tone.

  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.
