It depends : On what you want. If you think your breast are small then fat injections /grafting vs implants may be the answer.

Congenital: Congenital hypomastia is a condition which may explain your development. It runs a spectrum from asymmetry of size, pyramidal shape, constricted lower pole or herniation of the breast tissue through a constrictive band. The most severe form has lack of pectoralis muscle as well (polands syndrome). These conditions can be treated with reconstructive surgery with an attempt at insurance coverage.

1/2-1 pound: For patients who start off at their ideal weight, we recommend 4 lbs in the first trimester, then 1/2-1 lb per week thereafter, for a total of about 25-32 lbs. The weight gain is different for twins, or for patients who are overweight or have medical conditions like hypertension or diabetes.

Not necessarily: Most women are nauseated in the first trimester. If you have lost more than 10% of your pre-pregnancy weight or are severely dehydrated you may need to be hospitalized for IV fluids and nausea medications. Losing 1 stone (14 lbs) is ok if you weighed 140 lbs or more at the start of your pregnancy as long as you can keep some fluids down.

Weight loss: Eat less, eat balanced: but more importantly, begin to exercise as this is the key to long-term success. Not only do you burn calories when you exercise, you increase muscle mass (which further increases calorie consumption), and keep your heart healthy. Consult your clinician before beginning an exercise program.

Google up "BMI": Bmi stands for body-mass index. It's based solely on height and weight. You enter your height and weight, and you will get a bmi number. A bmi of 30 or over is "obese, " and a bmi under 18 is underweight. This will give you a start. Good luck. Lgromko md.
