The concern surrounds 'boob job jabs' in which fat and stem cells from the waist, hips, thighs or buttocks are used to plump up the bust without surgery.

The 6,000 pounds operation is becoming more popular, as, unlike conventional procedures, it also slims the lower half by transferring fat.

But a conference has heard there might be a risk in moving stem cells, or 'master cells', and processing them to be more concentrated.

"I would like them to be banned. They must not be provided for breast augmentation for cosmetic reasons," the Daily Mail quoted Fazel Fatah, president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, as saying.

"The warning must be very clear and given to the public: they should not subject themselves to this treatment until they hear from reliable sources such as the Royal Colleges or surgical associations, that it is safe," he stated.
