Yes saline solution (sterile 0.9% salt water) can be injected into breasts to make them bigger. More accurately the saline "inflates" the breasts. Results can be spectacular but short lived, as the saline solution absorbs into the body after a few days. Anyone practicising this temporary method of breast enhancement needs to take great caution to ensure that both the saline and the drip tubes and needles are sterile. If not, a potentially life-threatening infection can easily be drawn inside the body.
