When it comes to breast enhancement, there are a number of options available to you.
They're not all created equal, though, so it's important to carefully consider each option before you decide.
Make the wrong choice, and you risk disappointing or unnatural results, painful side effects, complications leading to long-term health problems, or, in the worst-case scenario, permanently disfigured breasts. And that's not to mention the shockingly steep bills that can take years to pay off. So let's take a critical look at the most popular options available to you:
Over 300,000 women in the United States alone choose to have breast implants each year, and to be honest, there's good reason for their popularity... a safe alternative to brest enhancement surgeryThe results can be dramatic and the improvement is nearly instantaneous.
However, before you take the plunge, consider this: the FDA has emphatically stated that breast implants are NOT permanent. It may seem shocking, but it's true!
Virtually every woman who undergoes breast implant surgery will end up either having her implants entirely removed or replaced with a new set at some point during her life. Worse, replace them, and you'll relive the pain, potential side effects, and expense all over again. But remove them, and you risk permanent changes to your breasts, like dimpling, puckering, wrinkling, or loss of breast tissue.
And don't forget the many other risks associated with breast implants, which include:
Finally, it's important to note that silicone implants have only been available for the past 4 years, following a 14-year ban.
These implants were banned by the FDA in 1992, following concerns that they led to a number of serious health problems, including cancer and lupus.
Only 2 companies are authorized to manufacture silicone breast implants today, and both are required to complete 10-year studies on their safety.
Fat transfer augmentation is a fairly new procedure and is currently being hyped as "the next big thing" in breast enhancement.
Based on an earlier procedure that was BANNED in the 80s due to poor results, during fat transfer augmentation, the surgeon liposuctions fat cells from your body (usually your buttocks or thighs), and then injects that fat back into your breast tissue, giving you a fuller, more shapely look that is more natural than implants, and is also permanent.
Early results seem promising, with the typical woman increasing her breast size by up to one full cup.

Worse, if fat is injected into two or more areas, patients may have asymmetry whereby the fat appears uneven in different areas.
Finally, there is some indication that this procedure could cause false positives during mammograms, as the injected fat can sometimes take on the appearance of a tumor.
While this procedure certainly holds some appeal, the cost is extremely prohibitive. Because you're paying for liposuction and breast augmentation simultaneously.
Note, too, that this procedure is still new, so no studies exist of long-term health risks.
The breast enlargement pump is the dinosaur of the enhancement industry, being one of the oldest and most cumbersome options for women.
A breast enlargement pump is just that: a plastic dome that fits over the breast, with a suction tube leading from it that creates a vacuum, placing pressure on the breast.
While this is certainly one of the more affordable breast enhancement options, these systems are extremely inconvenient and uncomfortable to use, they can cause extensive bruising and scaling of the breast, and the results they produce range from non-existent to mediocre.
In fact, this approach is so ineffective that, of all the pumps on the market today, only one is approved by the FDA. And for that one to produce any results at all, you need to wear it 10 hours per day, for 10 weeks!
That's 700 hours over nearly three months stuck at home with plastic domes and pumps attached to your breasts....
Yes, there are the old stand-bys, the padded bra and silicone insert. But really, there's nothing natural or permanent about enhancing your breasts this way.
