If you've been thinking about breast implants or breast enhancement surgery, you may not have to settle for going under the knife just yet.

Dr. Steven Davis, a plastic surgeon in New Jersey is encouraging patients to try Botox as part of a breast lift procedure. He claims that BOTOX injections can help improve the contours of the upper chest and help push out key muscles near the shoulder blades by freezing them in place. This helps improve a patient's posture and gives the breasts and rib cage a more balanced look (Source: MSNBC).

Dr. Tony Youn, a Michigan-based doctor who has been featured on Dr. 90210 and E! shares his insights on the issue in Botox for Breast Augmentation? is doubtful that this type of treatment is an effective way to increase breast size. Though he hasn't performed the procedure himself, he was not impressed with the before and after photos and is concerned that the BOTOX injections could even weaken the muscles in the chest.
