Does Alexia Breast Reduction Pills Really Work?

I am a very petite girl with a chest size 32DD. I want a reduction in size, but am nervous about breast reduction surgery. I heard about this pill that claims it can naturally reduce your breast size by targeting those specialized fat cells. Is it a hoax?

Pills for breast reduction

In a nutshell, yes it is a hoax.

If there were a way for a pill to reduce fat in a specific area the inventor would be on their way to Stockholm for the Nobel prize.

Fat reduction takes place throughout the body when your metabolic needs exceed your caloric intake. It is as simple as calories in vs calories burned.

Alexia Breast Reduction Pills

There is no science behind these pills so use them at your own risk and discretion. You are better off consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon to understand your options.

Pills that claim to reduce your breast size are very likely a hoax.  There is no science behind these treatments.  Surgery, although it may seem scary to you, is actually probably safer than taking pills which may have a mixture of untested ingredients in an unregulated mixture

Pills reduce breast???

No breast reduction pills that work exist ( to my knowledge). Nor herbal remedies or potions-lotions work either. Weight loss can help in certain people.

Breast reduction pills

Hoax. Unfortunately there are no pills, lotions, potions that will reduce your breast size.  Many times weight loss helps, but it sounds like this is not an option for you since you are petite.  If you are bothered by the size of your breasts see a plastic surgeon in consultation in order to discuss the risks and benefits.  This discussion may convince you to forgo the surgery for now, or make you comfortable with going forward with a breast reduction surgery.  Hope this helps and best of luck.

Breast reduction pills

As of this writing, there is no medicine or cream to make breasts smaller. There are many very good surgical options. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon. Together you will review your goals and expectations and come up with a plan just for you.

Pills for breast reduction

No pill will make you loose breast tissue.  Should you loose weight, you might loose some breast tissue.  Breast reduction surgery will decrease your breast size, and reshape and lift your breast to a size that will look and feel good on you.  I would suggest finding a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your desires and concerns. Breast reduction surgery is very safe and very rewarding for most women.

Breast Reduction Pills . . .Don't work

First off, know that your fear is normal. Many people wait decades for this surgery because they are afraid of the risks, have the surgery, and regret waiting so long. No procedure in plastic surgery has higher patient satisfaction than a breast reduction. The pills don't work.
Take some time to find a good plastic surgeon who does multiple variations of a breast reduction and who can match the procedure to your body. Find someone you trust and an office you feel comfortable in.

They note significant improvement in their symptoms and the majority grade their aesthetic result as excellent.
It's obvious that you're concerned about your breast size. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon might be beneficial.
