The breast is the upper ventral region of the torso of a primate, in left and right sides, containing the mammary gland which in a female can secrete milk used to feed infants.
Each breast contains 14–18 lobes. The subcutaneous adipose tissue covering the lobes gives the breast its size and shape. Each lobe is composed of many lobules, at the ends of which are sacs where milk is produced in response to hormonal signals.
The breasts overlay the pectorals muscles and usually extend from the level of the second rib to the level of the sixth rib in the front of the human rib cage; thus, the breasts cover much of the chest area and the chest walls.
The weight of the breast vary among women, ranging from approximately 500 to 1,000 grams each; thus, a small-to-medium-sized breast weighs 500 grams or less; and a large breast weighs approximately 750 to 1,000 grams. In the course of a woman's life, her breasts will change size, shape and weight, because of the hormonal changes occurring in body.
The release of oxytocin in a woman's body can lead to sexual arousal, with a resulting physiological response, including the erection of the nipples.
During the menstrual cycle, various hormones cause changes in breast tissue that can lead to pain or discomfort in some women. While breasts do not typically hurt, occasional breast pain is common.
There may be some pain during woman’s cycles. Noncyclical pain can have many causes, including injury to the breast. Sometimes noncyclical pain can come from surrounding muscles or tissues rather than the breast itself. A woman’s menstrual cycle causes hormone fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone. These two hormones can cause a woman’s breasts to feel swollen, lumpy and sometimes painful. This pain gets worse as they get older due to increased sensitivity to hormones, as a woman ages. Sometimes, women who experience menstrual-related pain won’t have the pain after menopause.
You can experience breast pain while breastfeeding for a number of reasons. These include mastitis, engorgement, improper latch etc..
Breast pain can have other causes, including diet, breast size, breast surgery, medications and smoking.
Both men and women develop breasts from the same embryological tissues. However, at puberty, female sex hormones, mainly estrogen, promote breast development which does not occur in men due to the higher amount of testosterone. As a result, women's breasts become far more prominent than those of men. In this cleanse we will basically deal with a woman’s breast as it has far greater significance than a man’s breast.
There are natural products out there that don’t contain dangerous hormones and offer a clinically proven way to get larger breasts. Externally applied creams work by increasing the amount of estrogen in your body, the hormone responsible for depositing stored fat to the right areas of your body, including the breasts.
Regular massage helps to keep breasts in finer condition. Regular breast massage will assist to build up breast.

There are a number of breast massage techniques you can do, but the Chi breast massage is one of the most popular and effective breast massage techniques around for breast growth.
If the ribcage measurement is an odd number, add 5" to get the band width. If your ribcage measurement is an even number, add 4" to get your band width.
Example: 29" ribcage + 5" = 34" band. 28" ribcage + 4" = 32" band.
The ‘Rice Test’ is a ‘do it yourself’ sizing method. It is not 100% accurate, but it’s pretty close. This test is primarily used to gauge the extent of enhancement desired by a woman. A small thin plastic bag of rounded shape is filled with rice and placed under a bra that the woman is wearing. The contours of the breast that are achieved after placing these bags are indicative of the size achieved through breast enhancement surgery. The conversions below are a general indicator of the increase indicated by the ‘rice test’.
|A Cup||1/8 cup||30 cc|
|B Cup||1/4 cup||59 cc|
|1/3 cup||78 cc|
|C Cup||1/2 cup||118 cc|
|2/3 cup||156 cc|
|D Cup||3/4 cup||177 cc|
|1 cup||236 cc|
Most women are better candidates for standard implants. If the diameter of the implant size (standard implant) selected is about the same as or smaller than the measured breast diameter, then a standard implant is the best choice. If the diameter of the desired breast implant size is larger than the breast diameter, then a high profile breast implant is best.
1. Breast augmentation with saline or silicone implants is performed through skin incisions placed either under the breast (inframammary), within the areola (transareolar or periareolar) or within the armpit (axillary). Saline breast implants may also be placed through an navel incision (transumbilical breast augmentation or TUBA).
2. The space in which the breast implant is placed is known as the surgical pocket. The implants may be placed in a surgical pocket either under the chest muscles (sub pectoral) or over the chest muscles (sub glandular). With the exception of trans umbilical breast augmentation, a third surgical pocket is available over the chest muscles, but under the fascia which covers the muscles – the subfascial plane.
Q: Does breast enlargement depends on genes. My mother was also having small breast. There was no increase during her first pregnancy, but after delivery her breast size increased by almost two cup size, due to greater milk production. Whether there is any possibility that same will happen with me? And if this does not take place, what exercises and herbs etc. can I take after delivery to stimulate breast size.
A: Yes, genes do determine the size of the breast. Since, you have a genetic predisposition; it is quite likely, that what happened in your mother’s case, may happen in yours. There is no need for you to be alarmed. The amount of milk produced does not depend on the breast size. Milk production takes place irrespective of their size.
Q: What are the limitations of breast enlargement with implants?
A: Breast augmentation with implants will not improve nipple asymmetry, move your breasts closer together, lift droopy breasts or remove stretch marks.
