Want Boobs Big And Waists Small? Stem Cell Therapy Could Help
Scientists in Britain are going to provide double bonanza to women looking for boob-jobs: a stem cell therapy that offers "natural" breast enlargement, and cuts stomach or thigh fat in the process.

The treatment, which can enhance cup size, involves extracting stem cells from spare fat on the stomach or thighs and growing them in a woman's breasts.

In the "scientific" boob-job process, cells will be isolated from a woman's spare fat using equipment owned by GE Healthcare, a technology company. The concentrated stem cells will then be mixed with another batch of fat before being injected into the breast. It takes several months for the breast to achieve the desired size and shape.

In the UK, a trial has already begun which uses stem cells to repair the breasts of women who have had cancerous lumps removed. A separate project is understood to be the first in Britain to use the new technique on healthy women seeking breast enlargement.

Professor Kefah Mokbel, a consultant breast surgeon at the London Breast Institute at the Princess Grace hospital, who is in charge of the project, said: "This is a very exciting advance in breast surgery."

"They [breasts treated with stem cells] feel more natural because this tissue has the same softness as the rest of the breast," The Times quoted him, as adding.

According to Mokbel, the stem cell treatment, which will bring smile to many faces, may be suitable only for modest increases in breast size.

"We are optimistic we can easily achieve an increase of one cup size. We cannot say yet if we can achieve more. That may depend on the stem cells we can harvest," he said.

How does one go about obtaining these services? Do you have to go to England? If so, what are the costs and how long does it take to recover after the procedure.
Is it a permanent breast enlargement, and does the patient have to worry about constant upkeep like the do with silacone implants?
Is there an age barrier? Is there an ethnic barrier?
