Breast Implant Alternative: Stem Cell Breast Enlargement

A New Treatment Could Swap Belly Fat For Bigger Boobs

Are you a member of the IBTC? If some scientists have their way, you may have an option to grow to a bigger cup size. The London Times reports that a new treatment, soon to be available in Britain, could lead to a bigger bosom — "naturally." The treatment involves harvesting stem cells from extra tummy fat, then growing them in the breasts. Most likely, women would go up a cup.

The technique, already used in Japan, will be tested on 30 women beginning in May. Professor Kefah Mokbel, who leads the project, says the stem-cell ta-tas are superior to implants. "They feel more natural because this tissue has the same softness as the rest of the breast," he says. But plastic surgeon Eva Weiler-Mithoff, who is unconnected to the project, has some reservations. While she has treated cancer patients with good results, she doesn't recommend it for healthy women. Bottom line? Another way to have bigger boobage could be available in the near future, but until then, a push-up bra remains the best option . . . or you could, you know, just be happy with what you've got in the first place.

I would be SO happy to fit clothes finally. Its particularly difficult to find bras and clothes to fit a (barely) nearly A. I don't have much belly fat though. Can they take from my thighs instead? Lol

It'd be nice if I could give my belly fat to up someone else's cup size. Mine are too big anyways. Heck I'd even give up one cup size if it could magically be transplanted onto someone who really wants it :P

I don't know if I would like that. I have a slim tummy and okay sized breasts. I just don't like how you can never tell if the person you are looking at is how they look naturally.

Neat! I'd totally be down. Not really sure if it would bring my bosom up one cup size, since I don't have THAT much belly fat...maybe half. But some is better than none!

I've heard about this for a while. I wonder if there'll be an option to replace your implants with stem cells. Also wonder if you'll be able to sculpt other areas of your body how you want them (hips/butt).

I heard about this on the news. I figure anything that doesn't promote shoving foreign objects in your body is good with me!

That'd give me one awesome rack. That could distract people from my belly fat. Except I wouldn't have any belly fat anymore then...
