Semaglutide is a drug designed to treat Type 2 Diabetes that has since been FDA-approved for weight loss and chronic weight management. Research shows the efficacy of using semaglutide weight loss drugs in patients with obesity.1

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable drug used to treat Type 2 Diabetes and obesity. When using this weight loss drug in addition to exercise and healthy eating, patients may experience significant weight loss.

How Does Semaglutide Promote Weight Loss?

Semaglutide promotes weight loss by mimicking the GLP-1 hormone which prompts the body to produce more insulin. It also interacts with the parts of the brain that control appetite, reducing hunger cues and causing you to feel fuller for longer. In turn, patients taking semaglutide drugs often lose weight, with some even experiencing rapid weight loss as opposed to during traditional weight loss procedures.

Semaglutide and Breast Changes

No matter how you lose weight, if you are on a weight loss journey, your breast size and shape can also be affected. Breasts are composed primarily of fatty tissue, and weight loss often results in losing volume in breasts as well.

Weight Loss and Breast Size

Some patients taking semaglutide weight loss drugs have noted the occurrence of 'semaglutide breasts' or 'ozempic breasts'. If you undergo rapid weight loss, your breasts may also lose fat, density, and volume rapidly. This can lead to a lower breast volume and decrease in fatty breast tissue.2

Long-Term Effects on Breast Shape and Appearance

If you lose body weight and keep the weight off, chances are your breasts have also changed. Breasts are affected by weight loss like any area of the body. If you are unhappy with your new breast size or shape, there are plastic surgery procedures that can help.

After reaching their desired weight, some women choose to undergo a breast lift or breast augmentation to restore overall breast volume. A breast lift procedure can eliminate excess skin and a breast augmentation can create a more rounded breast appearance.3

Bra Size Adjustments After Semaglutide Treatment

If you undergo rapid weight loss, chances are that your breast size and shape has also changed. Taking a weight loss drug like a semaglutide can result in significant weight loss, which in turn can affect breast volume.

We recommend taking your bust and band measurements regularly to ensure that your bra size is accurate. Weight loss affects the entire body, and breast are no exception. Rapid fat loss can also mean that both your band size and cup size have changed. Use our Bra Size Calculator to determine your best fit.

Concluding Thoughts

Ozempic breasts or semaglutide breasts can be a real occurrence for women taking weight loss drugs. If you are using a semaglutide drug, you may even experience sagging skin or sagging breasts after rapid fat loss. Breasts are made primarily of fat tissue, which naturally will decrease with weight loss. We always recommend remeasuring your bra size regularly to ensure that your bra provides the everyday comfort and support you need.
