Healthy Living and Breast Reduction

Healthy Living and Breast ReductionBreast tissue is primarily composed of muscle and fat.

If you naturally have large breasts, unfortunately dieting may not impact breast size significantly, because, under usual conditions, when we lose weight, we have a diffuse reduction of fat throughout our entire body.

However, if you have a few extra pounds to lose, then dieting prior to your breast reduction surgery can help jump start your journey.

Exercise promotes muscle tone and an increase in muscle mass, which may help create firmer breasts, but let’s face it: gravity usually wins the battle of the sagging breasts.

For some individuals, surgery is the only solution to achieve the look you desire.

Here is how your diet and lifestyle choices before and after surgery will aid in achieving your desired look for years to come.

In order to enhance the outcome of breast reduction surgery and prevent your breasts from getting larger
post-surgery, it is important to maintain a healthy diet, referred to as “clean eating”, with a decrease in overall carloric consumption, and the initiation of regular exercise.

While the notions of reducing overall caloric consumption and regular exercise are self explanatory, clean eating can be defined as avoiding:

1. over processed foods;
2. sugar substitutes;
3. trans-fats and saturated fats;
4. alcohol;
5. sugary beverages;
6. simple carbohydrates; and,
7. foods that offer little or no nutritive value.

Maintaining a healthy weight using these common-sense measures will not only enhance your breast reduction results but improve your overall health.
