Breasts are a popular topic here on the blog. And no wonder! There’s nothing more feminine than the female bosom.
Obtaining feminine curves, particularly breasts, is a major goal for many transgender women and crossdressers.
Yes, you can use breast forms or a padded bra as a temporary solution. However, having your own feminine breasts is an important gender affirming step in the male to female journey.
The good news is that there are many ways to reach this goal!
That’s why in this blog post, I offer an overview of the most popular MFT breast enlargement methods, including pros and cons of each. Read on to learn more!
Transgender Hormone Therapy
If you are a trans woman planning a full transition, then transgender hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the best place to begin your breast enlargement journey.
While transgender HRT can’t undo the effects of puberty, it will cause feminizing changes in the body including changes in hair growth, skin texture, redistribution of body fat, and yes, breast growth.
Breast growth typically begins within 3 months of starting hormone therapy. The breasts experience significant growth in the first 6-12 months. Breast growth typically slows down after that, but the breasts can continue to develop for years.
It’s important to know that your age can significantly impact on your results with transgender HRT. Trans women who start hormones at a younger age typically experience more dramatic results than those who start at a later age.
Herbal Pills And Creams
This method can be controversial, and it’s not a replacement for transgender HRT for those going through a full transition. That said, herbal pills and creams are used by many early-stage trans women and even crossdressers.
The premise is simple: There are many natural herbs (known as phytoestrogens) that have estrogenic effects, as well as herbs that have anti-androgenic effects.
These herbs have been used by cisgender women for centuries to manage symptoms of PMS, menopause, and other hormonal conditions.
These herbs can also be used to mimic some of the effects of transgender HRT, though obviously the effects will be much weaker.
Personally, I know of many people who have obtained significant breast enlargement using herbs and were happy with their results. Even so, it’s important to have realistic expectations with this method.

Breast Implant Surgery
Hormonal breast enlargement methods, including transgender HRT or phytoestrogenic herbs, can take a lot of time and the results can be somewhat unpredictable.
The most reliable way to obtain the exact breast size and shape you desire is through breast augmentation surgery. This can be a very satisfying surgery if you take the time to find a good doctor and thoroughly research the procedure.
I recommend checking out this guide to breast augmentation to learn more about the surgery. It covers the costs, risks to consider, and differences between the various types of breast implants.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Did you know that breast implants aren’t the only surgical option for increasing your breast size? Fat transfer breast augmentation uses your body’s own natural fat to increase your breast size.
The advantage of this technique is that the results typically look more natural than breast implants. The downside is that it can only increase the breasts 1-2 cup sizes. You also have to have enough excess fat on your body that can be transferred to the breasts, so this is not a good option for very thin people.

Breast Enlargement Pump
Turning our attention back to non-surgical methods, a final option to consider is using a breast enlargement pump.
While this might sound like a gimmick, there is some actual science to back it up. Breast enlargement pumps stimulate breast growth through tissue expansion.
Studies show that applying tension to an area leads to tissue growth. Surgeons use this technique (known as “tissue expansion”) to regenerate skin, bones and other tissues. Applying vacuum pressure to your breasts can also stimulate real growth over the long run.
A medical grade breast enlargement pump called the Brava was developed by plastic surgeon Roger K. Khouri, MD. Currently, the Brava is used by some plastic surgeons to enhance the results of fat transfer to the breasts.
While the Brava is only available through plastic surgeons, there are other breast enlargement pumps on the market.
One popular option is The Noogleberry Breast Enlargement System, which starts at $60. This device is meant to be used for 30 mins to 1 hour per day and can be used alone or to enhance the results of herbs or transgender HRT.
An added bonus of using a breast enlargement pump like the Noogleberry is that it can give you an instant size boost by increasing blood flow to the breasts. This swelling only lasts a few hours, but you can enjoy the results in the meantime!
Warning! Avoid Silicone Breast Injections
Now that we’ve covered 5 options for MTF breast enlargement, let’s talk about one that you absolutely need to avoid and that’s illicit silicone breast injections.
Silicone injections are banned in the U.S. and most countries, however, they are still used in some countries or performed under the table by unqualified injectors.
Injectable silicone is different from FDA-approve silicone breast implants. Silicone implants keep the silicone contained within the breast implant, preventing it from migrating within the body.
Silicone injections, on the other hand, can cause serious injury, disfigurement or even death as the silicone migrates. These injections must be avoided at all costs.
Let’s talk about breasts!
As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this hot topic.
Have you pursued any of these options for MTF breast enlargement? If so, what was your experience?

Diane, I can say that it was not your traits from mother as mine was well endowed as my grandmother. Wha it is mainly is being young. I was not young when I started and I am stuck with a B cup and nothing is going to change that.
I began female hormone treatment about three years ago, and I am very pleased with the results so far. I went from almost nothing to a full C cup. My doctor says it was probably because me mom was fairly big and that I probably inherited that trait. I am so glad of that! I would love to achieve a D cup but if not, I am well satisfied!!
Well, I do believe I can add my two cents in here. I began transitioning roughly 10 years ago. I took herbal estrogen supplements for years as I couldn’t afford anything else. I wore prosthetics in pocket bras for a goodly portion of that time. I was finally able to get my name officially and legally changed a few years ago, which set me up for some MAJOR changes/upgrades. I am a Veteran and changing my name and status with the VA made my current “state” possible. My new VA personal physician referred me to a Plastic Surgeon at the Main VA hospital nearby. Long story short, he did my implant surgery in mid August 2022 implanting “expanders”. My breasts are beautiful and I love them and am quite happy. I had my first “expansion” (1500 cc’s of saline in each breast) this past Wednesday, with one more due at the first of December (I am hoping for a D cup or a bit more) then the expanders will be removed and the permanent cohesive gel implants put in…….not enjoying the pain that comes with it but I am very pleased and looking forward to the final stage. And I have to give kudos to my surgeon who is an awesome person and does BEAUTIFUL work…..
I’ve been growing my own for a few now using a combination of Fenugreek Vitex
,Fennel, and Saw Palmetto on a daily basis. I have had modest results and no longer need breast forms. My mom was a small breasted woman and I inherited that tendency.
Love to all
im r old CD that is stilll in the closet using breast cream twice a day and then a cheap breast pump also twice a day for maybe at least 1 hour per time or longer will this help enlarge my breasts any but i am a 80 yea
Between massaging and nipple pumping daily i have seen a lot of progress. I tried the flat to fem program but had to stop because of a weakened pancreas. i will try again later this year. Plus i was over doing it with the herbals.
Mine look much like yours. Cute bra too.
I was flat as a board, I started using the Noogleberry pump about 8 months ago. I started pumping 1hr. In the morning and 1hr. In the evening for about 6 weeks. Then I would go for 2hrs and taking Pueraria Mirifica capsules. Also Sublime bust volumizing serum. I now fill out a 38 B and the are still growing. I massage also for about 20 min.
what about using a breast milking pump. I’ve read somewhere that “milking” your breasts with a pump can cause the human body to respond by developing the milk ducts and if done several times a day (3-4) over a long period of time, the resulting enlarged milk ducts cause permanent breast growth. If this works, and I don’t see why it would not, once the milk ducts are grown, the process is irreversible. Furthermore, there is evidence that regular stimulation of breast tissue, such as growing milk ducts, causes the human body, which includes both males and females, to naturally produce higher levels of estrogen, which is necessary to achieve the breast growth.
I started a breast milk pump program about a week ago and I am seeing and feeling almost immediate results in growth and sensation. I was born male, and I am 55 years old. If it works for me, it should have even better results for a person born physically female.
I read your post and being that I have no way of knowing how long it had been posted, I was wondering if the milk breast pump worked for you and how long have you been at it. Also did you already have breasts or breast tissue. On hormones? Or herbals? What you’ve said in this post was my thoughts exactly. I already had breast buds from taking hormones earlier in my life and prior to being on hrt this time, I had been taking herbal estrogen for a couple of years. So when my breasts started growing again this time, I got a milk breast pump and used it as they grew. I fit a C cup now after 4 yrs of hrt. It’s difficult to say whether it made a difference or not. What have you experienced? These are real, no bra.
Wow, you look great. You clearly made the right choice. You radiate beauty and femininity. Congrats!
