Maybe by -----: Making the pectorals muscles become bigger and pushing the breasts forward. Make sure you exercise both sides equally as otherwise one side may be more prominent than the other. The breast tissue itself does not get bigger. Remember in lifting weights you are mostly using biceps and triceps and not the pectorals as much. So with simple lifting there maybe no change in your chest appearance.

Yes: If for some reason your vaccine did not prevent you from getting chickenpox, (it does happen) you are just as contagious as any other chickenpox case.
