A woman’s breasts can take on an outsized role in her self-esteem. Many women feel more attractive, confident and sexy when they have larger and more feminine-looking breasts and can wear tighter clothing with lower necklines.

The market is flooded with creams and pills that claim to be able to provide non-surgical breast enhancement. As a consumer, you have good reason to wonder if these products deliver on their claims.

Reasons to Be Doubtful About Non-Surgical Breast Enhancement Products

Marketers sing the praises of their so-called “all-natural” breast enlargement creams and pills, often promising a dramatic increase in cup size. However, qualified cosmetic surgeons like San Francisco-based Dr. Michael Kulick are unanimous in debunking these statements. *

Non-surgical breast enhancement products claim they will improve both the size and the shape of your breasts naturally, without surgery. While many different types of breast enlargement creams and pills are available, close scrutiny of their websites reveals some telltale signs that the products probably do not live up to the marketing hype:

  • The products are not FDA-approved. Unlike breast implants, ** the federal government has not evaluated them for safety or effectiveness.
  • Before-and-after photos may be suspect. If you look at the fine print on many of these products’ marketing materials, you may see the phrase “results not typical” under their photos, which should lead you to question whether they are real, un-Photoshopped pictures.
  • Failure to list ingredients. Most of these breast enhancement products claim to be “all-natural,” but a closer look usually reveals a list of the ingredients they use may be vague or lacking altogether.
  • Misleading testimonials. Even if the website has glowing testimonials, how can you be sure they come from real users?
  • Lack of scientific studies. The marketing copy for these products often contains ambiguous phrasing that may make it sound as if the companies developed them after doing plenty of research, but often, there is limited scientific evidence for the merits of using such concoctions.

You don’t have to spend very long looking at these products’ websites to become a skeptic about the efficacy of non-surgical breast enlargement creams and pills. In fact, if even one of these products worked as well as it says, surely it would become an overnight sensation, and the company that makes it would almost instantly be worth millions of dollars. The fact that breast augmentation surgery remains the number-one cosmetic surgical procedure *** in the U.S. should be more than enough to convince you it’s not worth spending your hard-earned money on these “miracle” products whose companies have not provided high end, peer review studies confirming the efficacy of the product.

Breast Augmentation: An Overview

Women choose to get a breast augmentation, sometimes in conjunction with a breast lift, for many reasons, the most common of which are as follows:

  • Asymmetrical or lopsided breasts
  • Asymmetrical or lopsided breasts
  • To improve self-esteem and confidence about their appearance
  • To improve self-esteem and confidence about their appearance
  • Breasts have lost volume through sagging

Breast enhancement surgery is a highly customizable procedure that you should only trust a board-certified cosmetic surgeon to perform. Surgeons such as Dr. Kulick who specialize in breast procedures have many years of training and experience with this surgery, and are up to date on all the latest advancements in the field of cosmetic surgery to ensure the most natural-looking results.

Your first step in breast augmentation surgery is to schedule a private consultation with your surgeon. This meeting is when you will discuss your aesthetic goals for the surgery, so your doctor can evaluate you and give you a realistic assessment of the results you can hope to achieve. Your surgeon will develop a tailored treatment plan for you based on what you tell him or her during the consultation, so honesty is paramount.

You have several decisions to make about your breast enhancement surgery, which your doctor can help you with:

  • Whether to get a breast augmentation as a standalone procedure, or in addition to a breast lift
  • Where the doctor should make your incisions: under the arms, around the nipples or in the creases under your breasts
  • What type and size of implant you would like
  • Whether to insert the implants over or under the chest muscles

Breast Enhancement Surgery Is Highly Personal

Women have various motivations for getting breast augmentation, but if you’re considering this potentially life-altering procedure, keep in mind that this surgery is an investment in your self-esteem. You owe it to yourself to do your homework, make smart choices and find the best possible surgeon to perform your surgery. Don’t allow marketing claims to sway you – if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
