Your Only Two Options For Breast Enhancement

Creams or pills do NOT work. All doctors agree on this.

The only way to enlarge your breasts is through a surgical procedure.

Your two options are a breast augmentation with implants on your own fat transfer. Without going into the pros and cons, one quick thing worth noting is that the fat transfer procedure will likely cost you 2 to 3 times more, depending on how much you need and what your goals are. The reason is that it will take several visits to an operating room to collect the fat and transfer it.

Plastic surgeons welcome non-invasive procedures, and there are new innovations in this field for things like double-chins. Unfortunately, there is no non-invasive option for breast enhancement.

There are benefits and risks to a breast augmentation, like any other surgical procedure. And you also have the alternative of doing nothing, that is, not getting implants or a fat transfer.

As a patient, the best you can do is understand and accept this reality, and make a decision based on that.

The key is to ask yourself, "How much do I want this? For me, is it worth the actual cost? Also, is it worth the potential cost in the unfortunate case of a complication?" Those are subjective criteria. They are not facts, but, at the end of the day, it's what it comes down to. It's a very personal decision only you can make.

That said, on RealSelf, 96% of women who have breast augmentations are very happy they did. And, in my experience, they almost always say, "I wish I had done this sooner." The reason for this wish is simple: they love the way they look and feel, and wish that they had experienced this sooner in their lives.

Keep doing the research that you are doing. Getting your doubts addressed and your questions answered will help you come to a decision. The best patients are informed patients.

Now that you have learned about your options with breast augmentations, you may want to read up about implant shapes and sizes.

And be sure to go to many consultations. Doing so will actually save you time overall. A consultation is where you will get the best quality information directly from a plastic surgeon.
