In recent years, the popularity of breast enlargement pills and surgeries have increased exponentially. According to American researcher, Khouri RK’s report in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, less than 1 percent of the women interested in having larger breasts may elect to have surgical augmentation mammaplasty with the insertion of breast implants. Unfortunately, there’s an increase in the frequency of serious side effects and other diseases associated with these procedures. Although, not all medical treatments for breast enlargement are bad. They also work in favor of the issue and might help in boosting the confidence of those seeking treatment. Hormone intake has also been publicized by certain companies as a way to increase the size. We have discussed some treatments for the same below: [1]

Hormone Treatment

There are two hormones present in women that are responsible for breast growth. These hormones occur naturally inside the body, but can also be taken through synthetic means. However, it is advised that you take this hormone treatment under the supervision of a medical practitioner. Progestin is one such hormone that rises during pregnancy, inducing breast growth. They can be administered as oral contraceptives inside the female body. Along the same lines, there are other growth hormones like estrogen that can be taken for breast enhancement under the strict supervision of a doctor. [2]

Pills & Creams

Breast actives, Total curve, and BustXtreme may be three highly acclaimed medicines prescribed to those looking for breast enhancement. They claim to give firmer, enhanced and lifted breasts in a very small time. What’s good about these treatments is that they don’t require a surgical treatment and are therefore less of a hassle. [3]

Surgical Implants

A surgical implant is also known as breast augmentation surgery. In a breast augmentation surgery, either artificial breasts are implanted or they make use of fat to enhance the area. The surgery starts with an anesthesia injection, then the surgeon makes an incision below the breast for the silicone implant. This implant is either placed below the pectoral muscle or directly behind the breast tissue. You can see the result as soon as the incision is closed and the bandages are removed.

They may also pose a few side effects, though, like infection, leakage, scarring, fluid formation, etc. The results from breast augmentation surgery also do not last a lifetime and comparatively cost a lot more than other breast enlargement treatments. However, an Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery report on breast augmentation stated that breast augmentation is an extremely satisfying aesthetic procedure. Due to phenomenal strides in implant manufacturing, the quality of implants may have improved exponentially, lessening the risks involved in the surgery. Furthermore, it stated that submuscular placement of cohesive gel implants may have reduced the risk of capsule formation. [4]

These were some of the main medical treatments for breast enlargement. The choice is up to you, whether you want to go for the cheaper option of home remedies or an expensive option of medical treatments.
