Push up bra?: Natural breast size is determined by genetics and body weight. The only effective way to increase breast size , without gaining significant weight, is surgical augmentation. However there are many bras and inserts that can give cleavage to the" less endowed" who want it. By the way the pills don't work.

Nonsurgical breasts: Pills and lotions do not work. Breast tissue is made of fat and glands, so the only way to increase size naturally is to increase either of these (gain weight or hormonal changes that mimic pregnancy). Negative pressure devices exist and help increase vascularity and may have some hypertrophy effect, but are cumbersome (brava), but are used to prepare breasts for fat grafting.

No: Even with surgery it is not always possible to create a cleavage. Some patients have a wide chest bone or their breasts are naturally fat apart on their chests. You cannot make them closer or bring them over the chest bone without risk of creating what if called synmastia where the breasts become united on the midline.

You : You are certainly correct that body contouring results depend on how we interact with gravity in the standing position. Since we are human, however, it would be technically rather difficult to perform liposuction on someone who is standing up. For this reason, the markings for liposuction are done at 360 degrees in the standing position. The patient is then placed recumbent for the surgery, either face down, back down or both. It is dependent on the surgeon's talent and skill to translate the markings made upright into the appropriate fat removal and scuplting. While early taping and dressings are applied with the patient lying down, later garments and taping are perfromed while standing to help mold the body into its new shape as swelling subsides and the skin resettles.

Not the safest: Lipo surgery comes with risks, as do any surgeries. I feel it works better for body contouring, but not for weight loss. If you've tried diet and exercise, & aren't seeing the scales move, I would recommend talking to your doctor about drawing labs., to include complete thyroid panel and a 4 x day saliva Cortisol, in addition to the normal labs. This bears a LOT on weight/hormone issues

What is the longest amount of time after liposuction surgery that a person can drain?

Liposuction 's: Because of the variable surgical techniques utilized and the extent removed, the "drainage" from liposuction procedures may take weeks to cease. Since the procedure is basically a "blind" one for the surgeon, pockets of liquified fat may take time to dissipate. If an unpleasant odor or discoloration of the drainage occurs, see the physician who performed the liposuction for an exam.
