Large breast treatment options

What causes large breast?

Here are the biggest factors that determine the overall size of your breasts, some temporary and others permanent.


  • Family history


  • Weight


  • Workout routine. Pectoral exercises won’t actually increase your breast size—but they might grow the muscle behind the breast, which could make them appear a little bigger.


  • The period


  • Your birth control. Hormonal birth control methods like the pill, the shot, and the hormonal IUD can actually impact your breast size.


  • Pregnancy and postpartum. A pregnant woman breast can grow several cup sizes during pregnancy thanks to hormonal changes like increases in progesterone.


  • Age. Hormonal changes as you age have an impact on the size and shape of your breasts.


  • Gigantomastia. It is a rare condition that causes excessive growth of the female breasts.


The exact cause of gigantomastia isn't known and can occur randomly during puberty, pregnancy, or after taking certain medications.


Many researchers define gigantomastia as a breast enlargement that requires a reduction of 1,000 to 2,000 grams per breast.


While gigantomastia is considered a benign (noncancerous) condition, it can be physically disabling if not treated.


In some cases, the condition resolves on its own, but many women with gigantomastia will need to have breast reduction surgery or a mastectomy.
