The breast is made up of fatty tissue and increase in the body’s fat may lead to growth in the breast size. It is a myth that application of creams or pressing the Breastsbreast can increase its size. The breasts function after the birth of the child by providing milk to the baby. Hence they are also called mammary glands.

Breast size can be increased by plastic surgery using prosthesis like silicon. Do remember that the human body is not symmetrical, as made out by the artists. Slight asymmetry is a rule rather than exception. This is true even for the female breasts. It is definitely normal if one of the breasts is slightly larger.
