Losing weight after breast reduction

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after breast reduction


1757391 tn?1346127363 t have to lose weight. But know that if you have a reduction done and then lose weight, your chest size will also likely decrease drastically. I lost 60 pounds after I had my daughter, and my chest is currently almost non-existent. Before I got pregnant I was a B. Now I'm the smallest A size, and usually don't even need a bra. Nothing to contain.
Avatar n tn Or if she is gaining breast size as she gains weight, losing weight will also reduce them. But overall, your job is to love your wife and make her feel good about herself rather than trying to change her.

9974613 tn?1407014269 I went from a 36DD to a 36H! Even after losing the weight they remained a 36H! I had a breast reduction a few years later! I'm 39 weeks and a 36D only hope they don't grow as big again!!!
7251241 tn?1389564212 I think the breast reduction will be a good thing for you. I too know women who have had this and all are quite pleased. You go down to a more comfortable and natural size-- and so much of the pain and issues are gone. The downside is that it obviously is a surgery that has inherent risks. But I think from what you describe, the benefits may outweigh that tremendously.
Avatar n tn I was also told by several doctors I need a breast reduction (ASAP) as well. I also know my breast have gone up 2-3 cups sizes since the summer. They are awfully heavy and press down something terrible on my ribs and stomach. My breast also wreak havoc on my back, shoulders and the nerves in my neck (causing loss of feeling and numbness in my arms and hands). A little history on me, Over the course of 2 years I gained about 60 LBS. The last 15 LBS since last summer.
Avatar f tn I had a partial breast reduction done back in 2009, more like a lift than a reduction. I don't think my surgeon cut off my mammary ducts and I still do have some sensation on my nipples. I'm 23 weeks now and I really want to breastfeed when my baby gets here. I so regret doing that surgery now :( is there anyone out there who had success with breastfeeding after having breast surgery (not breast implants)?
Avatar f tn Yes breastfeeding can help you lose weight. However eating right is a huge factor. Go on walks too. Little exercise is better than no exercise.
4528412 tn?1357069833 It took me awhile to lose my weight. got the depo shot 6 weeks after birth. BIG mistake! Went 3 rounds after i quit that and lost about 10 lbs without trying. Then after dieting, watching what i eat/ drink, i finally lost all but 10 lbs. i was 120 prepregnancy so i wond up being 130. Grapefruit works wonders and so does gaterade. After gaining some weight back, i started walking everyday. got up to two hours a day. Then i was also drinking atleast one energy drink a day.
Avatar f tn m wondering if anyone knows anything about feeding after a breast reduction? I fed my first 15 years ago but since have had a breast reduction ( 10 yes ago) ??? I've been told not expect to be able to by a doctor but it still might be a ppossibility. Has anyone had success??
Avatar n tn I too have had severe pain in both my breast, and I keep getting cortisol shots to no longterm avail. Its only been a year but I get sharp pains at random, my hair is falling out, and the itching is unbelieveable! The cortisol last for about two weeks and the pain is almost unbearable. I have no clue what to do. I wish I knew before hand these issues I would have just delt with the back pains from my breast being too large. I hope someone will find relief and pass it on to the rest of us.
Avatar f tn Hi there, ive had breast reduction twice and twice i've grown back to my original size within the year, any advice could this be a medical condition? i haven't put on any other weight apart from a few pounds recovering weight... any help would be much appreciated.
Avatar m tn If you have had the radiation, you might want to consider that over time the radiation will cause the treated breast tissue to harden and shrink. That may have an effect on size after the reduction. You might want to talk to the docs, including your rads onc.
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn You might be healthier, or lose a bit of weight and secondarily lose a small amount of breast, but not nearly enough to qualify as a reduction.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone! Has anyone tried feeding after having a breast reduction? I fed my first but that was 15 years ago and I had a reduction about 10 years ago.
2188958 tn?1346444891 I think that was the key to me losing weight, bc as soon as I stopped nursing gained the weight back. My second it took about 6 months to get to my pre-pregnancy weight, and again I stayed skinny until I stopped breastfeeding, then I gained about 15 lbs. With this pregnancy I am much older, and I have gained so much weight already that I doubt I will lose it all very quickly, if at all :/ I plan to work out if I can this time.
Avatar f tn it might not seem like much to some of you but i have a slight problem i am a 38d i was a 44dd in 98 but i had a breast reduction the dr removed 7 lbs from them. they are the first place i gain and the last place i lose. anyone want to share their weight loss secrets or want to lose weight like me please share...
Avatar f tn My husband has encouraged me for upto 10 years to have a breast reduction. Before the reduction I was a size I (the letter after H in the alphabet). Since I have gotten the surgery he hasn't wanted to sleep with me at all. In fact, he just told me that he doesn't know if he will ever be able to sleep with me again. I am devistated. I really don't know what to do. Please, help me. I'll take any kind of advice at this point. Thank You.
Avatar n tn Good point, thank you for sharing. I know if I came home with an extra 100 lbs. suddenly my wife would be packing her bags. My wife's reduction had nothing to do with pain. She wanted to fit into more clothes and refused to do the real work to lose and keep weight off. Breast reduction surgery was her "quick fix" and now she's putting weight on again. She's never been further from attractive since I've known her. Thank you again for your words.
