hello dear
development of breast is a physiological phenomenon. through out the life, there will be hormonal changes and accordingly there will be change in size,shape and function of breast. Breast is a fibrofatty glandular sweat gland. during adolescence more of fibrous tissue will be there hence its firm and well shaped. during pregnancy more of glndular tissue will be there hence its increases in size. but pressing the breast will not help in development of breast.

Welcome to HCM.
Massaging or fondling the breast may increase the size, but not always. It also depends on the body constitution and build. In some females the breasts are naturally large even without manipulation, while in others it remains small even with heavy fondling.
In pregnancy the breasts certainly enlarge in size in preparation for breast feeding the child.

breast is fatty organ and it is proved that by pressing there is no increase in breast size at all
what is the main factor playing role in breast size is hormones and genetic.

silicon breast implant is the only effective therapy .
