*Reconstructing the Breasts after Major Weight Loss

Breast Reduction in Charleston, SCWe understand your weight loss journey is going to take a huge physical and emotional toll on you and your body. We want to be there for you when it comes time to help yourself reveal the body you’ve worked hard to achieve. After going through a major weight loss, the skin is often stretched and loses its original shape. Your breasts may look more saggy and deflated than you’d like them to be. Let us help you reconstruct your breasts to get the perky, beautifully shaped chest you imagine for yourself.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

As we lose weight, we often lose weight and volume in our breasts first. This leads to our breasts looking more flat and saggy than they did when they did before our weight loss. When you consider adding volume back into the breasts, we strongly suggest doing so with a fat transfer breast augmentation, rather than a traditional breast augmentation. A fat transfer breast augmentation uses fat harvested from a different area of the body, usually the abdomen and flanks, to increase the size of the breasts. This one-two punch allows you to remove stubborn, excess fatty pockets that may be lingering in your midsection while increasing your breasts one to two full cup sizes.

Breast Reduction

If you’re unhappy with the size of your breasts because you feel they are now too big to fit your small frame, we can help with that, too! We recommend getting a breast reduction. A breast reduction is a surgical cosmetic procedure in which excess skin and tissue are removed from the breast to decrease their overall size, and reposition them on the chest to complement your body’s frame. Similar to a breast lift, this procedure does also heightens the breasts, but it also reduces the overall size of the breast and areola to better suit your needs.

Breast Lift

If you’re already happy with the size of your breasts and simply desire them sitting higher on the chest, consider undergoing a breast lift instead. A breast lift is a surgical procedure in which excess skin and tissue in and around the breast are removed, and the breasts are then repositioned to a perkier place on your frame. This procedure does not add volume to your breasts like breast augmentation and does not remove a large amount of volume like a breast reduction, rather a breast lift just changes the position of the breasts on the chest for a healthier, more youthful appearance.

The Power of Two

It’s important to remember that these procedures don’t have to be done alone. If you feel you’ll need a breast lift in addition to altering the size of your breasts, we highly recommend combining the procedures for your ultimate desired look. During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Widenhouse will go over all of the possibilities available to help you get the perfect set of breasts based upon your budget, lifestyle and desired results. Just remember that whatever you chose to get done, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
