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

Suction or Pressure to increase breast size?

Unfortunately, neither of these methods will lead to any actual increase in breast size. There is a device called 'BRAVA' which is an external vacuum-device that is used in combination with fat grafting to perform breast augmentation. However, fat grafting to the breast, especially for cosmetic reasons, is still somewhat controversial at this point because different studies have demonstrated different safety profiles.

I recommend reading the brief statement on the ASAPS website below (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery)

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Natural breast augmentation

There is a device called the BRAVA, which applies external pressure to temporarily expand the breast. This device is used in combination with surgical transfer of your own fat cells for a modest increase in breast size. BRAVA treatment alone will not give a permanent change in breast size. Most patients want a larger volume change than can be achieved with this method and opt for implants, or implants in combination with fat cell transfer for a more natural look and feel.

Increasing Your Breast Size

The only safe, effective, and reliable way to permanently increase your breast size is with a breast augmentation procedure. You might be referring to the BRAVA breast enhancing system or similar types of technology. These systems are generally ineffective, do not produce lasting results, and do not produce the more significant change that many women are looking for.

Does sucking and pressing the breast increase size?

+1
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.
