Breast enhancement is surgery to increase breast size. Some people have also taken herbs and supplements to promote breast growth.

 

Natural Therapies

There is not enough data to support that any natural therapies will promote breast enhancement. We will review future studies as they are published.

Editorial process and description of evidence categories can be found at EBSCO NAT Editorial Process.

 

Herbs and Supplements to Be Used With Caution

Talk to your doctor about any supplements or therapy you would like to use. Some can interfere with treatment or make conditions worse.
