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!

Pills and Creams Will Not Enlarge Your Breasts Safely


Thank you for your question.

Topical creams will not enlarge your breasts in a significant way.

Hormone pills can increase breast size as long as you take them but there are serious health risks to taking hormone therapy.

In my opinion the safest alternative for Breast Enlargement is Breast Augmentation with Breast Implants.

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.

Breast Augmentation Works Well and Will Boost Your Self Confidence

Forget about the pills and creams.  They will not give you the improvement you are looking for.  As you suspected, hormones can have side effects that are dangerous such as blood clots.  For the most part these are gimmicks designed to give you false hope

Your best approach is to find a board certified plastic surgeon (ABPS certified) who does breast augmentation weekly and has a good reputation and have them perform a breast augmentation.  If money is a problem consider, financeing your breast augmentation.  Many plastic surgeons now have financing options such as Care Credit.

You will be happy with the result and get a big boost in self-esteem and confidence.  Happiness, on the other hand, is up to you.  Of course, women often do tell me they are happier with their larger breasts!

Breast augmentation piggy bank

Creams and supplements will have a very subtle, if any effect on your breast size. If money is a concern, don't waste yours on something that won't give you the result you want. Hormone therapy can increase your breast size, but has serious health risks including blood clots. Your best option is to save your money and pursue breast augmentation - either with implants or your own fat - when you're ready.

The Dark Side to Non-Surgical Breast Enlargement

There are few things in life about which I, as a plastic surgeon, feel more confident than in telling you to not use pills or creams in an attempt to increase breast size.  These pills, if effective, must work by increasing the progesterone and estrogen in your body.  Breast cancer, as well as a number of other malignancies, are commonly linked to overproduction or hypersensitivity of the cancer cells to estrogen and progesterone. Offsetting this balance in your body in what is likely to be an unsatisfactory attempt at non-surgical breast augmentation is very possibly dangerous and ill advised.  Best case scenario would be that the pills or creams simply don't work. Worst case is cancer.  It's just not worth it.

Creams, pill and potions... don't work

No pills, creams or potions work. If one did, we all would know about it and it would be a huge runaway hit. If one that actually works is ever developed, it will storm the market and be a beyond best seller. Unfortunately this is not the case.  Spending money on these is a waste, save your it for something that will work.  

Depending on your final goal, the best options for you are probably breast augmentation with a silicone implant or fat transfer (although this is controversial and many plastic surgeons do not offer fat transfer to breasts).  The best way to figure out what the options to enhance your breasts is to see a plastic surgeon in person so that he/she can examine you discuss the risks and benefits of all the options with you.   Best wishes.
