Is There An Alternative to Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Pills, creams, fat transfer, and vacuum bras are some of the available non-surgical methods for breast augmentation—but do they work? “Breast enhancement” pills typically contain estrogen, which may cause breast swelling, but the effect isn’t permanent. Creams that contain herbs are said to stimulate the body’s estrogen production, initiating the same effect as the pills. The problem arises that the effect (if there is one) goes away as soon as you stop the treatment, and altering your hormones can cause negative side-effects.

What about vacuum bras? Vacuum bras work by gently pulling on the breast tissue, which is said to stimulate cell growth and thereby slightly increase breast size. While the procedure may have some science behind it, it’s too soon to say that it is a long-lasting and viable alternative to surgical breast augmentation.

What about fat transfer? Fat transfer has been discussed recently among plastic surgeons in New Orleans, Mandeville, and across the US because there has been new evidence to suggest fat transfer may be a viable solution to breast enlargement; however, the results to date have been inconclusive, and enlargement is typically limited to a cup size or less.

Women who are looking for a permanent and predictable increase in breast volume are safer spending their money on surgical breast augmentation in the New Orleans area. It is the only lasting solution that produces consistent results after surgery. Implants are rated for safety and can last for many years before needing to be replaced.
