If you’re a woman who would like larger breasts but you’re hesitant about implant surgery, you’re not alone. In fact, every member of the entire aesthetic industry from top-notch board certified plastic surgeons to fly-by-night charlatans selling miracle treatments, is well aware that women would rather not go under the knife. Hence, there’s a huge range of breast enlargement options to choose from.
Unfortunately, most of the choices that don’t involve surgery are a waste of money. Some may even be dangerous.
When talking about breast enhancing options that don’t really work, creams top the list. They may contain some of the ingredients found in pills, those that can cause temporary swelling, and they may even cause some tingling sensation that fools users into thinking they work. In reality, there’s little to no scientific or even anecdotal evidence that they work(aside from testimonials on Web sites selling the creams).
Most breast enlargement pills on the market today are based on herbs that have hormone-like effects on breasts. Thus, they may cause a sense of enlargement due to fluid retention, similar to the effects birth control pills can have. But many doctors believe the pills may not be safe for that very reason. Discussing natural breast enhancement medications, a professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine said, “The use of bust-enhancing products should be discouraged because of lack of evidence for efficacy and long-term safety concerns.”
Before you plunk down money for an exercise device that promises to enlarge your breasts, think for a moment about what your breasts are made of: milk ducts and fat. There’s muscle there too (the pectoral, or chest wall, muscle, among others). The breast mound itself consists of tissue that can’t be enlarged through exercise.
You can certainly exercise anyway! Building your upper body strength is a good health move. It may even perk up your breast profile just a bit, but actually enlarge your breasts through exercise? Nope.
Speaking of equipment, there’s the infamous Brava device.
