Question: I am completely fed up with my small bust. I have tried pills, supplements, push-up bras, and even makeup trying to make my bust appear fuller and more lifted. I am thinking about surgery but am trying to hold out as long as I can. I’ve heard that there is a cream on the market called Perfect Woman Breast Cream that claims to enhance the bust but I’m not sure how it works or if it is safe.
Answer: Breast enhancement creams claim to be different from other forms of breast augmentation because they are “non-invasive” and are supposedly absorbed through the skin. Breast enhancement creams claim to go through the skin and into the estrogen receptors in the breast. When the breast tissue receives estrogen, the body receives signals that are common during pregnancy and puberty. Estrogen tells the body to begin producing breast tissue associated with breast growth and development.
Perfect Woman Breast Cream is one such cream that claims to enhance the size and shape of the bust by being absorbed through the skin and into the estrogen receptors in the breast tissue. The cream is supposed to target the mammary glands so that fullness is isolated to the breast area and not other areas of the body. The problem with herbal breast enhancement products is that their results are not proven. There is very little, if any, clinical research that proves that creams and pills do anything to enhance bust size. The website claims that the main active ingredient is wild yam extract, a plant-based estrogen. However, little is known as to how plant estrogens affect the body, if at all.
With all of the different herbal based products available on the market, there are a lot that are quite good–but you must remember to follow all the guidelines that come with the product in order to achieve maximum results. If you do shop for a breast enlargement product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively effects the size of one’s breast. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
