My breasts are quite small so there is not much fatty tissue there. I am also slightly overweight. If i lose weight will my breasts become smaller?

Unlikely: If you lose weight it will mostly be due to reduction of fatty tissue; since you don't have much in your breast it's likely that it will not change much with weight loss.

I tell my patients that want to both lose weight and have a breast reduction to wait for the surgery until the weight loss has been completed. This prevents the breasts from sagging excessively after you lose weight. ...Read more
