New Device Promises Surgery-Free Breast Enhancement

But some doctors say you won't notice the difference

It will take 10 hours a day for 10 weeks or more, but thousands of plastic surgeons are betting that their patients will go for it. The doctors are lining up to find out how to get licensed to sell a device that uses a battery-powered wearable vacuum bra to increase the size of women's breasts.

According to an article from MSNBC, the device includes two plastic domes that fit over the breasts, covered by something that looks like a sports bra. With the flick of a switch, the domes create a vacuum that the product's manufacturer says can make breasts grow up to one cup size.

The device drew a lot of attention from plastic surgeons at a recent meeting of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The company that makes the device, Brava LLC, was able to make the case that the product will be marketable at about $2,000 to $2,500 to women interested in increasing their breast size.

Some doctors were skeptical about the product.

"I have concerns people are going to be unrealistic about what will be accomplished and they'll be disappointed," says Dr. James Baker of Winter Park, Fla.
