Increasing breast size

No sucking or pressing on the breasts will increase breast size unless you are nursing.  After nursing has stopped, many women loose breast size and shape.There is a temporary method called BRAVA that will modestly increase the breast size to allow fat grafting to the breasts.
Without fat grafting, the breasts then usually quickly return to their original size when BRAVA is stopped. Don't fall for the "line" from a man if he tells you that sucking and pressing or handling a breast will increase its size.

Small change can be achieved

The BRAVA device can be used to stretch the skin in combination with fat grafting for a modest increase in breast size. The "sucking and pressing" stretches the skin and the fat transfer (your own fat removed from another area of your body and injected into your breasts) increases the volume. Most women want a bigger change than this method can provide and opt for implants. All of the options can be overwhelming and are best discussed in consultation with your plastic surgeon so that the answer can be tailored to your breasts and desired outcome.

Sucking and pressing the breast for size increase

No.  No kind of manipulation of the breast will make them larger.  If you note it, its likely swelling and will go away.  Also no creams have been proven to work

Does sucking and pressing the breast increase size?

Well the short answer is yes, it can. BUT, this size increase is limited to 1/2 cup size in most cases and the increased size is quickly lost after discontinuing use of the Brava device. We offered Brava for a brief time and our patients were, by and large, not happy. Therefore, we discontinued Brava in our practice. Breast augmentation surgery is a much better investment. Good luck!

Suction and Pressure for growth or increase in size.

+1
Unless you are nursing, then no manipulation will increase the size of the breasts for an extended period of time. The Brava system utilizes what some will describe as sucking and pressing that will modestly and temporarily increase the breast size to allow fat grafting to the breasts. Breast Augmentation with implants is generally a superior way to enhance the breasts over fat transfer.

No

No, and any change you experience is temporary because engorged tissues generally return to their original state.

Manipulating the breast in this way will not change its size.  The only thing that this may accomplish is temporary swelling in the tissues.

Changes in breast size without surgery

+1
Manual manipulation of the breast by any means has never been shown to cause a permanent change in size. While there are vacuum devices available to temporarily increase the breast size, this swelling recedes within a few days.

Does sucking and pressing the breast increase size?

+1
Any type of negative pressure, suction, sucking, or chronic pressing or pushing of the breast tissue could do a couple things:   the constant trauma can cause temporary swelling (and short-term increase in size), and the stress on the skin can cause it to lose elasticity and become more lax and loose.   Unfortunately, there is no easy way and safe way to increase the size of the breasts permanently without putting something into the tissue - either an implant or fat injections, or overall weight gain.
