If you are in the process of losing weight, you may have noticed that your breast size or shape has changed. Losing weight often means that your breasts size decreases, and it can also result in sagging breasts. This is normal and more common that you might think!

Let's go through everything you need to know about saggy breasts after weight loss. We'll also give you our recommendations for keeping your breasts supported to prevent further breast sagging.

Sagging Breasts After Weight Loss

Breasts are composed mainly of fatty tissue, so it's no secret that losing weight will also affect your breast size. Fat loss happens throughout the body during weight loss, and there is no way to keep your breasts out of the equation.

Many women find that their breast tissue has decreased immensely after losing weight. This can often result in sagging breasts and excess skin around your breast tissue. All of this might sound scary, but it is a completely normal occurrence if you have lost weight.

What Bras Should I Wear to Prevent Breast Sagging?

There is no way to prevent your breasts from sagging entirely, but having a well fitting bra is an excellent way to keep your breasts supported to prevent further sag and support skin elasticity. Wearing a supportive sports bra during higher impact activities keeps your breasts supported and lifted.

Having a comfortable and supportive everyday bra will also ensure you have the support you need day to day. Knowing your bra size and having a bra that fits can help lift breasts and prevent drooping breasts. We recommend remeasuring your bra size after weight loss, as both your band and cup sizes can fluctuate. The last thing you want is to have an ill fitting bra that doesn't help to lift sagging breasts.

Breast Lift Surgery or Breast Augmentation

If you lose weight and find that your breasts are sagging more than they used to, there are also surgical procedures you can undergo to amend this. These plastic surgery procedures aren't for everyone, but some women prefer to undergo a breast lift procedure or breast augmentation to restore lost volume. If your breasts sag after weight loss, breast implants can help fill lost volume and create a rounder breast shape.

There are also breast lift procedures that can help eliminate loose breast skin and lift saggy breasts. Breast surgery is not for everyone, so be sure to consult a doctor who can determine if you are a good candidate for breast enlargement and walk you through the surgical procedure and its possible effects. For some women, having a breast lift or breast augmentation is a viable option to restore lost volume after weight loss.

Concluding Thoughts

There is no real way to breast sagging breasts during weight loss. How much your breasts sag after you lose weight depends on many factors including genetics, age, and skin elasticity.

If you have undergone weight loss and would like to enhance the shape and appearance of your breasts, you can consider surgical procedures like a breast lift or breast augmentation. Breast implants can help restore lost volume and create a rounder bust appearance, also filling out any excess skin.
