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?

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.

Breast Reduction Pills Do Not Work: Breast Reduction Surgery is Your Best Option


It's normal to be nervous about surgery; unfortunately there's no pill available that will reduce your breast size without it. Breast reduction surgery can be a life-changing experience. Patients who have had breast reduction surgery report improved self-esteem, self-image, and self-confidence. 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.

Breast Reduction Pills and supplements


At the time of this writing, there are no medication, pills, creams, or nonsurgical means that can reduce only the size of your breast. Most of the medications are herbal supplement that has not been clinically tested and are not FDA approved. Taking these meds or pills without physician supervision may pose a danger to your health. Breast reduction surgery is the only time tested and safest way to reduce the size of the breast. My best advice is to find a board certified plastic surgeon and schedule a consultation. Breast surgery is safe if performed on healthy patients by board certified plastic surgeon in an approved outpatient facility or hospital. Do you research well.

There is no chemical basis for medical reduction of breast tissue.  However, a surgical breast reduction will alleviate the size and symptoms of macromastia.

Do Breast Reduction Pills Work?


There is no pill that you can take to significantly and safely reduce the size of your breasts. Surgical breast reduction is a relatively safe procedure but I can completely understand that you are nervous about it. If the size of your breasts is bothering you (and I'm pretty sure it is!) then ask your general practitioner to refer you to a plastic surgeon to discuss your options and find out more. You're under no obligation to undergo surgery and you should not proceed unless you feel comfortable with the decision, but you may find it useful and reassuring to learn more about the risks and benefits of breast reduction surgery.

If you ask around your social circle chances are you'll find some women who have had the surgery and will be able to tell you about their experiences. I've found that women who undergo breast reduction surgery are often extremely satisfied with the outcome, and often the only regret for women who begin with extremely large breasts is not having undergone the procedure sooner.

Good luck!

Fat reduction pills should be viewed with skepticism



All fat reduction pills, creams, etc should be viewed with skepticism.  The adage that if something sounds too good to be true it probably is something to consider.  Weight loss in general may reduce the amount of fat in your breasts and consequently your breast size.  Liposuction of the breasts and breast reduction surgery are surgical methods of breast reduction.

All the best,

Breast Reduction - Does Breast Reduction Pills Work?


I am unaware of any pills or other non-surgical methods that produce a breast reduction.  And that makes sense - why would anyone go through a surgical breast reduction - and it remains one of the procedures with the highest rate of satisfaction - if there were a way to do it non-surgically?

I hope that this helps, and good luck,

Pills for Breast Reduction?


Thank you for the question.
Unfortunately,  there is no nonsurgical means of breast reduction surgery ( despite many claims made by people selling pills, creams, and “miracle” technology). 
If you're considering the procedure,  consult with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.
Best wishes.
