Do You Need to Be at a Goal Weight for Breast Augmentation?Every woman knows that when you’re losing weight, your breasts are often the first place to show it. Like it or not, breast size can be closely linked to fluctuations in your weight.

So, if you’re considering breast enhancement, but still have a little weight to lose, is it best to make it to your goal weight before having surgery? What is the ideal weight for breast augmentation?

How Does Weight Loss Affect Breast Implants?

Just like natural breasts, significant weight loss can affect the appearance of breast implants. Significant weight loss can impact the way your breast implants will look over their lifetime. Your specific breast implant size and location will be determined based on the proportions of your body, as well.

If your body proportions change from losing weight, your implants may not look their best on your new figure.

What’s the Ideal Weight for Breast Augmentation?

The ideal weight for breast augmentation will be as unique to you as your surgery is. There is no special number on the scale that makes you a great candidate, but the best candidates for surgery are in generally good health, non-smokers and close to their goal weight.

If you’re considering breast augmentation, there’s no ideal weight you need to achieve first. But you should be healthy and close to your goal weight for the most natural-looking, long-lasting results.
