Are IPL Laser Treatments effective at enlarging breasts?

Most of what I’m reading says that IPL Laser Treatments will have no effect on the size or shape of breasts, and that I would need a breast augmentation or implants to see results. I am a B cup and want to get to a D, but really don’t want to have any surgery. Am I out of luck?

Unfortunately IPL will have no effect on the shape or size of your breasts. You need breast augmentation. While there are options available, it is very important to seek an experienced plastic surgeon who can help determine which are best for you and your goals. Traditional breast augmentation with breast implants is the most effective method for permanent augmentation. Liposuction with Fat Transfer to the breasts is another option, but does have drawbacks which include having an area or areas with enough fat to harvest for the transfer, as well as the fact that only a portion of the transferred fat will survive, making it difficult to achieve big increases in size. Non-surgical options at this time have not been shown to increase the size of breasts and are aimed more at tightening breast tissue and providing a small degree of lift. 

Laser treatments and IPL will not change the size of your breasts. To go from a "B" cup to a "D" cup size you would need some type of breast augmentation. If you are interested in pursuing that treatment I recommend seeing a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Good luck!
