When it comes to achieving your ideal breast size and shape, how far are you willing to go? Some women are willing to try a lot of “DIY” and at-home “remedies” to quickly and cost effectively enhance their breasts. Among the most unusual natural breast enhancement solutions that has recently surfaced online involves rubbing toothpaste on the breasts. Yes, some women are actually rubbing toothpaste on their breasts in hopes of achieving a bigger and perkier bust.
Top San Antonio breast enhancement surgeon Dr. Robert Young discusses the problem with this bizarre new trend in this blog post.
Does It Really Work?
One YouTuber who goes by the name “Editorial Naturalbeauty556” recently shared a video titled “Tighten Sagging Breasts in Just 6 Days Using Toothpaste No Joke 100%.” In the video, the woman claims that rubbing a combination of toothpaste, flour, egg whites, cucumber and yogurt will firm the breast skin, causing the breasts to appear perkier and even larger in size. The woman recommends massaging the mixture on the breasts for three to four minutes a day. She claims results can be seen in as little as five days. According to several media outlets, there are other YouTube videos posted by so-called “beauty experts” that claim toothpaste and other household items like Vaseline help boost bust size.
So does this method actually work? The answer from many experts, including Dr. Young, is a resounding no. Your breasts may end up smelling minty fresh, but there is absolutely no evidence that rubbing toothpaste on them (or any other household item for that matter) will make them bigger or perkier.
And while rubbing toothpaste on the breasts doesn’t appear to produce any adverse effects, experts warn that trying other so-called “natural” breast enhancement solutions could be dangerous. There is no shortage of topical creams and pills on the market that claim to enlarge breasts significantly. But the truth is that many of these products contain ingredients that can actually suppress breast tissue growth, or even worse, increase the risk of serious health concerns.
Breast Augmentation and Lift for Safe and Proven Enhancement
Breast augmentation by a board-certified plastic surgeon is the only proven way to enhance the size of the breasts. The procedure can be combined with breast lift, which repositions and reshapes saggy and deflated breasts for a more beautiful and youthful appearance. Breast augmentation can be performed using saline or silicone breast implants, both of which are safe and durable.
Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to ensure you get the beautiful results you desire. With years of experience and a reputation for safe and successful outcomes, Dr. Young is the trusted choice for breast enhancement in San Antonio. After evaluating your medical history and anatomy as well as discussing your aesthetic needs and goals with you, he can recommend the best treatment plan for you.
