Sometimes health headlines sound more like science fiction than fact, and this little bit of news definitely fits that categorization.
Scientists have figured out a way to move fat, mined via liposuction from undesirable body locations like the belly, booty or thighs, and transfer the fat where many ladies want more fat - their breasts!!! Harnessing stem cell technology, scientists can now inject a fat and stem cell mixture into breasts where the mixture encourages new breast tissue to grow. Talk about bosom buddies.
Although the procedure only takes about an hour to implement, one must wait about 6 months for the results to appear. More research is needed, but in the early trials of the procedure, called Celution, have been successful. In one study 19 women in Japan, all of whom had had at least partial mastectomies, all responded well to the treatment, with no major side-effects.
Celution could revolutionize cosmetic surgery and "breast enhancements," making silicone breast implants a thing of past - although the two procedures are similarly priced. While I think this procedure can really help women who have had mastectomies and desire breast reconstruction without taking muscle from another part of their bodies, part of me wishes there was no societal pressure to have "bodacious ta-tas." I guess that wish really sounds like science fiction.
I am curious what you all think about this - let me know in the comments section below.
