29 Dec Should I Be Concerned About Weight Gain From Breast Implants?
Most women who are considering having breast implant surgery, naturally have many questions. And one reasonable question is how much weight will be added to the scale post op. They may worry that the added weight could cause neck and/or back problems.
The amount of weight that women gain from breast implants is, of course, directly related to the size of the implants that are placed. Specifically, one cc equals 1 gram and there are 454 grams in one pound. So, should you choose a 450 cc implant, that would result in a 2 lb. weight gain.
Rest assured, when implants in this size range are used, there should be no concern for future neck or back issues associated with them. This size is easily tolerated and if placed below the muscle, even more so. Doing so, the implants receive added support in the body.
