Brief answer...
There is no legitimate scientific study or data.

Detailed answer....
Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Palmetto is supposed to increase the estrogen production from ovaries which help in plumping the breast.

Similarly fenugreek has centuries old reputation as a natural breast enhancer and to achieve this, one has to take it for many many months to achieve a mild to moderate increase in the breast size.However results vary from person to person.

Some even massage fenugreek directly on the breast also.

However all these breast augmentation effects of both fenugreek and saw palmetto are not backed by any scientific study.

I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.

Best of luck.

Thanks,

Is it damgerous on my hormones?
I know there is no scintific study but whats the logic of taking palmetto which contains astrogen to make breast bigger while i already have astrogen in my body and my breast stopped growing?

Hello,
Since the estrogenic activity of saw palmetto is very mild,it won't cause any harm on your hormonal system,although doctors don't advise it's use along with other hormonal preparations.
There is very insufficient evidence that it augments the breast size but it is being prescribed for breast augmentation for many centuries,although it is more of a belief rather than an actual scientific proven agent.

Hello,
Fenugreek contains phytoestrogens which help in more production of prolactin hormone and this prolactin hormone is responsible for stimulation of mammary gland tissues resulting in these tissues to grow quickly and expand.
Prolactin is generally released in pregnancy and during breast feeding and that's why breast size increases in pregnancy and breast feeding.
Some other steroid like substances are also  present in fenugreek which increase the size of breast.These substances are gitogenins,yamogenin etc.

Hello,
I understand your keenness to use fenugreek for breast augmentation,but you should remember that there is no scientific data suggesting its use for such purpose.
It may or may not bring any substantial and desired results for you,however you may definitely give a try.As far as the size of breast getting reduced a little after stopping fenugreek is concerned,it is definitely possible.
As such using fenugreek for breast augmentation is concerned,it is not a usually and routinely prescribed method and females resort to it because there is no scientifically approved medication available for such purpose.
Thanks
