So what do you make of the news that the new high priests of this 21st century, the scientists, say that fat from the tummy or bottom could be used to grow new breasts in a treatment which could be carried out in an hour – or a lunch break?
Scientists say they can create a fat mixture with concentrated stem cells, which, when injected into the breast, apparently encourages tissue to grow. The therapy, detailed in Chemistry and Industry Magazine, could help cancer patients who have had mastectomies. And if licensed, it may rival silicone for those seeking bigger breasts. Using fat from the patient’s own body to rebuild other areas is not a novel idea, but such reconstructions often fail as the fat is simply reabsorbed. However using fat-derived stem cells appears to overcome this problem, according to the company behind the procedure, Cytori Therapeutics.
It all sounds too good to be true. I’m sure those women who have had a mastectomy might find this sort of thing to be very encouraging but does this sort of thing just raise false hope? You’ve got to admit that the concept of using tummy fat to grow larger breasts is novel but what sort of people dream these things up? Seems to be that they have wayyyyy to much time on their hands! And I suppose if they don’t get mass business they might end up going bust!!
