Do Breast Enlargement Creams Work?

At amazon.com you can see lots of breast enhancement creams and pills for sale. So, i figured if amazon carries them, they must have some benefit. I'd like to go up one or 2 cup sizes without surgery. The top reviewed breast enhancer that seems to do this is the Breast Actives. The Breast Actives program is called a natural Breast Enhancement Program with exercise, supplements and cream that give you nutrients that you don't get in your diet. Is there truth that certain nutrients missing in your diet can lead to poor breast development?  If so, wouldn't these products *work* to some degree if that's the case. I mean, you do get bigger breasts when you gain weight, so it seems like theres a relationship between breast size and diet.

Breast Growth Enhancers

Breasts are made of glandular tissue and fat.  Anything that makes those tissues grow will increase breast size.  Most women don't want to get pregnant or gain weight to increase breast size.  There are a lot of fads out there that are not proven clinically and are a waste of money.  The BRAVA method of negative pressure suction cups on the breast can increase breast vascularity and hypertrophy of the tissues, but only a limited amount and the system is very cumbersome.  Fat grafting is s surgical method that uses your own fat to moderately increase breast size with a natural appearance (and the added benefit of losing fat where you don't want it).

Creams and pills

The safe and effective way to increase your breast size is with surgery--with breast implants or with fat.  No pills or cream will safely enlarge your breasts.  Most women do gain in their breasts with weight gain, and many women gain in their breasts with pregnancy.  but, you don't want to be fat, and you cannot stay pregnant your whole life.  I suggest seeing a board certified plastic surgeon, and discuss your wishes.

Creams Work?

I have never seen a cream enhance anything for any reasonable length of time. The answer is no.  Some may be dangerous depending on what the ingredients are contained in the product  and how they are absorbed in your body.

Creams, pills and potions...

The reality is that 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. Please save your money.

Breast creams work?

There are no herbs, lotions, or potions that can increase breast size that can be purchased over the counter. Hormone replacement however can effect size, tenderness, and function.

There is no safe/effective medication, cream, herbs, or nonsurgical  method to significantly increase breast size. Be careful about believing heavily marketed “miracles" that you will undoubtedly read/hear about.   Best wishes.

Can breast enlargement creams increase breast volume by one to two cup sizes?

+1
There are lots of medical supplements on the market. Breasts enlarge with weight gain due to increased amounts of fatty tissue and doesn't really have anything to do with nutrients in the diet. If it were really possible to get that kind of size increase without surgery, there's no way so many women would choose to have breast augmentation year after year. The only reliable way to get a permanent increase of one to two cup sizes is to use a breast implant.

Non-implant procedures like fat grafting and the BRAVA breast enhancement system can be performed by plastic surgeons to gain a cup size or sometimes two, but the volume tends to decrease somewhat over time, so the results are not as predictable or long lasting as with implants.

Breast creams don't work

+1

As you mentioned, there IS a relationship between breast size and weight gain. Breasts contain fat, so gaining weight can lead to more fat throughout the body, including in the breasts. Many women also complain that their breasts become smaller whenever they diet and lose weight. It's not really a matter of "nutrients" but of body fat. 

Breast size can also change with changes in hormone levels (such as during pregnancy). If you have a hormonal problem, something which would be diagnosed by a doctor, then modifying your hormones might help.

For most women, however, the only reliable way to increase one or two cup sizes is with a breast augmentation. Many people will be happy to take your money for creams, supplements, etc. that will leave you disappointed.
