How to Make Your Boobs Bigger - Pills or Creams?

I have very small breasts, and really want to make them larger. I have been looking at different options, breast augmentation being one of my top choices, but also looking at breast enhancing pills. I'm afraid the hormones and estrogen in them might be dangerous, but of course the websites won’t tell you that! I don't have a lot of extra money for surgery, but I really feel like I want this not only for my self confidence, but overall for my personal happiness. Thanks!

There are no pills or creams that work for breast enlargement

Hormone therapy to increase breast size is not specific for the breast tissue,so unless you want to be fat and have big boobs, if not a realistic choice. Approximate 300,000 women have breast augmentation is performed in the United States every year,by board-certified plastic surgeons. The procedure is safe and not as expensive as you would think. Suction devices such as inconvenient, time-consuming, and not effective.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Many offer financing programs also.

Safe breast augmentation

The science is clear - pills and creams will not enlarge your breasts safely - at best you will waste your money.  Currently the only safe, reliable an dproven methods of breast enlargement are by way of surgery using either implants or your own fat to enlarge the breasts.  The old saying "if it seems too good to be true...."

Pills or creams for breast enlargement

If there were really safe and effective pills or creams to enlarge breasts, plastic surgeons would not be in the business of doing surgical breast augmentations as no patient would choose to undergo a surgical procedure if there was a non-surgical option. Our technology is simply not there yet.

How to Make Your Boobs Bigger - Pills or Creams?

Thank you for your excellent question. Unfortunately, there are not any creams or pills on the market that can specifically target breast tissue and breast tissue growth.  As one of the more popular aesthetic surgery procedures annually, breast augmentation with implants is the best way to currently increase the size of your breasts.

Any magic pill for breast enlargement?

There is no pill or cream that can safely alter your breast size without having some form of influence on your hormones.  The birth control pill certainly can lead to enlarged breasts and many women like that as a side effect.  It is not without some risks and these should be discussed with your doctor.  Beyond that, it really comes down to a breast augmentation using your own fat or an implant.  Speak to your plastic surgeon to determine which is best.  Money put into a breast augmentation will guarantee larger breasts.  Magic creams, lotions, potions and pills are likely money wasted.

Save up for the surgery

Don't waste your time with those pills and creams. They won't work. If you don't have the money right now, go see a professional bra fitter. I recommend the specialty stores, although some department stores also offer them. Contrary to what you see on TV, not all those big name bra stores offer professional fitters. You can get some fullness from wearing an appropriate bra. However, to make the breasts actually larger your only reasonable choice is surgery.

Don't waste your money

There is no magic pill to target breasts and enlarge them. Like any medicine, side effects do happen. I would be very leary of any claims that a non-FDA regulated pill makes. Typically these supplements include ingredients that are considered generally safe by themselves. These include Barley, black cohosh, Dong quail, Fennel, Fenugreek, Hops, Kava, Oats Pueraria Mirifica and Zearalenone. Best-case scenario it does nothing and you have wasted your money and time. Worse case scenario it stimulates breast tissue in an uncontrolled way and may contribute to later breast tumor development. Although I do not have any studies to say that these pills cause breast tumors, I am not aware of any that prove that they do not. Remember women have a 1 in 7 lifetime risk for developing breast cancer so why push your luck.
By the way just because they call something a “ supplement “ does not necessarily make it safer than a prescription medication. A pill is a pill and a drug is a drug. You are putting a chemical into your body that will interact with your system in someway.

Breast augmentation surgery is a very safe and highly effective surgery for breast enlargement. It is the #1 surgical cosmetic procedure performed in this country every year, and according to Realself has a 95% “worth it” rating. In recent years fat grafting has become a “more natural “ alternative to breast implants.
In my opinion the keys to a successful breast augmentation start by choosing a highly qualified Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. If they are not board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery keep on looking. Good luck.

Pills to increase breast size

I do not believe that there are any truly effective pills or creams that will increase breast size. Surgery- whether with breast implants or fat grafting to the breasts- is the only effective option for making a significant change in size. Unfortunately, the products claiming to be able to produce results are a waste of your time and money.

How to Make Your Boobs Bigger - Pills or Creams?

Unfortunately there are no creams, pills or foods that can cause breasts to grow. You can use certain bras and bra inserts to make your breasts look larger in clothing, but the only way to actually increase the size of your breasts would involve surgery in one form or another. To know what options are best for you book a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon near you. Best of luck!

Surgery

I think your best option would be surgery. There is no good data that that  pills and creams work unfortunately.
