It's not always necessary to seek the assistance of a plastic surgeon to enlarge your breast size. It is possible to use exercise to add inches to your current bust. The main component of breast tissue is fat, which cannot be enlarged through exercise. The muscle beneath the breasts, the pectorals, however, can be built up with strengthening exercises, ultimately adding size your breasts.

Chair Dips

The chair dip exercise is a way to use minimal equipment in virtually any location to help enlarge your breast size. Be sure to use a chair that is stationary and will not move during the exercise. To perform a chair dip, sit on the chair and place your hands next to your thighs on the edge of the seat. Lift your body off the chair, walk your legs out so that your body is directly in front of the chair, then bend your arms to lower your body as far as you can. Press back up and repeat for two sets of 10 repetitions.

Exercise Ball Push-Ups

Performing push-ups on an exercise ball will strengthen your entire chest but it helps to isolate the lower portion of your pectoral muscles more. Because a portion of your body weight will be on the exercise ball, it is important that you use the ball on a non-slip surface and inflate the ball to the manufacturer's recommended amount. To perform an exercise ball push-up, place your stomach on top of the ball, allowing your hands and feet to touch the ground. Walk yourself forward with your hands until your lower legs are on top of the ball. Keep your back straight, bend your arms, and lower yourself as far as you can. Push back up and repeat for 10 to 12 repetitions.

Lying Dumbbell Pullovers

This exercise strengthens your pectoral muscles with the use of a dumbbell and a weight bench. To perform a pullover start on your back on a weight bench while holding a dumbbell with both hands. Be sure to keep your arms straight and hold the dumbbell so that it is vertical and held over your face. Slowly bend your elbows, lowering the weight behind your head as far as you can. Lift the weight back up to the starting position and repeat for 10 to 12 repetitions.
