Can I Change My Breast Size By Working Out?

With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

If you want to change your breast size, one of the most effective ways to do it is with plastic surgery. Breast reduction surgery is ideal for downsizing the breasts, often reducing painful symptoms associated with large, heavy breasts. Breast augmentation can increase your breast size, enhance shape, and restore youthful fullness after pregnancy or weight loss. Exercise may provide a minimal impact to your breast size, but if you really want to make a change, surgery will provide more dramatic results. Give us a call to schedule your breast surgery consultation today.

Exercise can impact breast size, but your options are limited. The breasts are made up of primarily fatty tissue. They also contain milk ducts and lymphatic tissues. Behind the breast is the pectoral muscle. Exercise can change breast size in a couple of ways. As you exercise more you may lose weight, causing fat cells to shrink. Since the breasts are primarily fatty tissues, this can lead to a reduction of breast size.

Exercise can also strengthen and increase the size of the pectoral muscle. In women these increases are often minimal due to lower levels of testosterone. Increasing the size of the pectoral muscle can cause the breasts to look larger. Since exercise can increase or decrease breast size, although minimally, you can’t really know what results you’ll achieve. Breast surgery provides a more consistent, predictable result.

Increase Breast Size with Breast Augmentation

For bigger breasts, opt for breast augmentation. This procedure places an implant into the breast. This procedure can correct asymmetry, restore lost volume after pregnancy and breast feeding, and boost breast size. There are many different types, shapes, and sizes of implants which allows us to custom-tailor your breasts to your desires.

Decrease Breast Size with Breast Reduction

Many women with overly large breasts find exercise is a little difficult. Often the weight of the breasts makes cardio exercise like running and jumping very painful, many women with large breasts wear multiple sports bras to achieve sufficient support during exercise. Breast reduction surgery does more than just decrease breast size. It often makes exercise easier and more comfortable, allows clothing to fit better, and can reduce pain and discomfort from large breasts.

Although exercise may make minor changes to your breast size, it isn’t going to provide the lasting, dramatic changes that breast surgery can. Contact us to schedule your consultation and to explore your options for better breasts.
