Fenugreek and Natural Breast Enhancement

In the course of researching natural breast enhancement products, fenugreek extract is an ingredient that seemed to pop up a lot, so I thought it merited some extra attention. Fenugreek is a small, hard seed that comes out of a bean-like pod. The plant is native to India, the Mediterranean and North Africa.

Breast Cancer Awareness…Really?

Breast Cancer Awareness - Reaching to the Social Media If you are on Facebook, you have undoubtedly seen one of your friends post a status update like this: “I like it on the floor.” “I like it on the kitchen counter.” “I like it in the backseat of my car.” Maybe you were confused by it, or maybe you knew what it meant. Although I’m sure we all connected these status updates with favorite places to have sex (or maybe that was just me?), they were, in fact,...

I spent a lot of time talking with women who had had implants as well as doctors who perform surgery.  This is what I learned. Silicone Breast Implants Non Cohesive Gel Silicone Pros:[list style="checkmark"] Softer and...

Different Types Of Breast Implants

In the process of looking into breast implants, I knew there were a couple different types. I also remembered there had been some bad press surrounding issues with silicone breast implants, but I really didn’t know much about it either.  Here is what I learned. Silicone Breast Implants Silicone implants have gone through a lot of changes over the past 50 years or so (yes, they’ve been available since 1962 – can you believe that?).  I won’t go into detail...

Types Of Breast Implant Surgery Incision

By type of surgery, I mean incision placement for breast implants.  There are four incision locations in total, and each has its pros and cons. Inframammary (Breast) Incision The inframammary incision is the most common one used in implant surgery.  The incision is placed along the bottom of the breast just above where the skin folds over. This means that unless your boobs stand straight up (and I think if you’re getting implants after breastfeeding they probably...

Choosing Implant Placement

Seriously, it’s like the decisions are never-ending!  You have to decide between silicone and saline, round or teardrop, textured or smooth.  Then you have to decide where the incision should be. Now you have to decide whether the implant should be placed under or over the pectoral muscles.  Here’s some help. Subglandular Placement Subglandular implants are placed under the mammary gland and over the pectoral (chest) muscle.  All four types of incisions and all...

Natural Breast Enhancement Alternatives

So here’s what actually happened. I had planned for several years to get my breast augmentation surgery done. I did all the research I needed, talked to lots of women who had gone through breast surgery, and even talked with some breast surgeons.  And when it came right down to it, I just could not shake the worries. After looking at hundreds of pictures of scars, uniboobs, and crooked and misshapen breasts, I was still too worried about the risks of breast enlargement...

Common Natural Ingredients For Breast Enhancement

I have made a list of the most common ingredients in breast enhancement supplements and creams as well as their uses and possible side effects. It is important to note each and every one of these ingredients is NOT recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.  All of the breast enhancement supplements contain a warning that they should not be used while pregnant. That said, there’s no reason to use this stuff while you are pregnant because you are already...
