For women who have a history of fluctuating weight, a common question is whether or not weight loss or weight gain will alter their final results. And as Dr. Moraitis explains to his potential patients, it really all depends on your unique physique; unfortunately, he doesn’t have an absolute answer to give you.

Your Results Will All Depend on Where You Tend to Lose or Gain Weight

Many Clearwater women tend to know where they are likely to always lose – or gain – weight. And this is where your knowledge is going to come into play. If, when you lose weight, you usually lose volume in your breasts, it’s possible that weight loss after a breast augmentation will reduce the size of your breasts. If you tend to gain weight in your breasts, is possible that your breasts will become larger if you gain weight after your procedure. And if your breasts are inclined to remain unaffected by fluctuating weight, it’s possible you won’t notice any difference in the shape or size of your breasts, if you do happen to have a significant weight change after a breast augmentation.

Tell Dr. Moraitis if You Are Planning to Lose a Significant Amount of Weight Before You Undergo Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

If you already know you’re unhappy with your current weight and you’re planning on losing weight after your breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to communicate this information with Dr. Moraitis. Depending on your unique weight loss history, he may advise you to wait to undergo the procedure until after you have lost the weight.

Another thing to consider when it comes to breasts and weight loss is breast sagging. Losing a significant amount of weight – whether your breasts are natural or augmented – can cause your breasts to sag and droop, which may necessitate a breast lift. Since a breast lift can easily be performed at the same time as a breast augmentation, planned significant weight loss may be another reason to postpone a breast augmentation until you are at your goal weight.

The Importance of Scheduling an Initial Consultation with Dr. Moraitis

Every time Dr. Moraitis meets for the first time with a plastic surgery candidate – regardless of the potential procedure being discussed – he spends a significant amount of time with them explaining the procedure in depth and asking and answering his or her questions. And the question of, “What happens if I gain or lose a lot of weight?” is one of the very reasons that Dr. Moraitis spends so much time with his plastic surgery candidates. While many Clearwater women consider him a “magician” because of his artistic skill and technical expertise, the truth is, Dr. Moraitis’ scalpel is not a magic wand, and he can’t predict the future. With certain questions, such as, how weight gain can affect breast augmentation results, Dr. Moraitis has to be honest and tell his patients that he doesn’t have all the answers and that you should be wary of any plastic surgeon who claims he or she does.
