Please help! I have a sunken chest and small boobs?

Plastic surgery. You have pectus excavatum, a developmental problem with the chest cartilage. Treatment is based on hemodynamic compromise due to cardiac or pulmonary compression. If that doesn't exist, then therapy is cosmetic. If you go that route, treating the pectus, as well as a breast augmentation can be done. Just don't expect an insurance company to cover it.
