So I know it is recommended that you stabilize your weight after reaching goal/max loss before getting skin removed, but is it possible to do breast implants sooner? I know I am thinking pretty far ahead here because I am only about halfway to my goal weight but my breasts are so small now and they look weird and I am extremely self conscious about it. Can you get implants as soon as you reach goal?

You may want to talk it over with your plastic surgeon. ask what will give you the best results.

I'm envious of those that can afford plastics. For me it's about a good bra and Shapewear.

I'm willing to take out loans if necessary. For once in my life I want to look good. I'm older and obese for most of my life, and even though I'm not that far along I can already see a dramatic difference in my breasts and I know skin will be a huge problem for me.

Working in the medical field I can say this is true....there are surgeons that will do whatever the patient wants to get the money, and there are surgeons that will honestly advise you based upon what will give you a better result.

I hope you find a surgeon that is the latter.

From what I've read you're supposed to wait until 6 months after you've reached your goal weight and stabilized before undergoing any plastic surgery for excess skin. I don't know if this would apply to breast implants or not, but you want to be sure you're at your final weight before having anything dramatic done so it'll fit your body correctly and your body won't still be changing.
