Breasts are made up of breast tissue and fat. For women whose breasts are mostly fat, they may see a reduction if they lose weight but then may find their breasts sagging and may need a breast lift. For women with more breast tissue than fat, surgery will be the only option. Good luck.

Some women can lose the weight in their breasts with a significant weight loss.   However, their breasts end up being droopy.   Since you did not indicate your height, weight, breast size along with photos, I can not say whether yours could potentially decrease with weight loss.  If you are on oral contraceptives, those medications can sometimes cause an increase in your breast size but usually not significant enough that getting off of them will make much of a difference.   And so, breast reduction surgery is usually the best option for reducing, lifting and re shaping a woman's breasts.

Best Wishes!

Breast reduction surgery is the only effective way to see a reduction in breast size, other than weight loss, which might only slightly reduce the size of your breasts. So if you are considering a breast reduction, you should consult in person with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast reduction procedures. Good luck!

Thank you for the question.  There is no safe/effective medication, cream, herbs, or nonsurgical method to significantly decrease breast size.If you were to lose weight, your breasts will likely change (I am not recommending that you lose weight for this purpose, if you are at your "healthy" weight currently).  Best wishes.
