Adult Stem cells to grow bigger breasts (Cancer Still not Cured)
The London Times ^ | March 29, 2009 | Sarah-Kate Templeton

Posted on 03/29/2009 7:29:42 PM PDT by GOPGuide

A STEM cell therapy offering “natural” breast enlargement is to be made available to British women for the first time.

The treatment could boost cup size while reducing stomach fat. It involves extracting stem cells from spare fat on the stomach or thighs and growing them in a woman’s breasts. An increase of one cup size is likely, with the potential for larger gains as the technique improves.

A trial has already started in Britain to use 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.

“This is a very exciting advance in breast surgery,” said Mokbel. “They [breasts treated with stem cells] feel more natural because this tissue has the same softness as the rest of the breast.” He said the treatment offered the potential of considerable improvement on implants: “Implants are a foreign body. They are associated with long-term complications and require replacement. They can also leak and cause scarring.”

Although the stem cell technique will restore volume, it will not provide firmness and uplift.

Mokbel believes the stem cell treatment may be suitable only for modest increases in breast size, but will conduct research to find out whether larger augmentations can be achieved: “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.”

The cells will be isolated from a woman’s spare fat, once it has been extracted from her thighs or stomach, using equipment owned by GE Healthcare, a technology company.

the pills don’t naturally enlarge what is already there like this does. But to whatever company and add length and girth via stem cells or a pill will have the frist TRILLION dollar drug/procedure.

Ridiculous priorities.

I completely disagree.

This is the free market at work. There is a lot bigger market for breast enhancement than for many life-saving surgeries.

As silly as that may sound to you, the medical procedures developed here will soon find their way into other types of treatments. And the development costs will be paid by willing volunteers, not by tax money.

ewwwwwwwwwwww, is that a rash there?

Seriously, do guys like this humongousness? aren't they scared to be smothered while sleeping?

oh and if the researchers were serious about finding the cure for cancer there would be no need to do fake breasts. Truth is they like to mess with women's bodies.
Cancer is real, the research for a cure is a hoax. It's just a money scam. MOO

I notice that these are, again, ADULT stem-cells. Even if you may think the application frivolous, it is more than embryonic stem-cells have yielded.

Also note, this could be used in the future to regrow breasts after a mastectomy and therefore be of some help to breast-cancer patients/survivors.

We’ll the truth is I like em all sizes. I’ve always had a natural fixation where they are concerned.:-) I do understand why women want to have reconstructed breasts or something bigger than mosquito bites but I’ve always believed that a good man can make the most of just about anything if he loves a woman enough. Big breasts does not a personality make that is certain but it all depends on what kind of man a woman is trying to please. Seducing morons can get very expensive and painful just as can pleasing high maintenance women. I’m lucky though. I have a great wife but then again I chose wisely.

Jim that is an excellent point. People afford all kinds of luxuries but can’t afford a basic exam. Everyone must have their entertainment we can’t expect people give up anything because that isn’t fair.

It looks like the movie Idiocracy was in fact prophesy.

The years passed, mankind became stupider at a frightening rate. Some had high hopes the genetic engineering would correct this trend in evolution, but sadly the greatest minds and resources where focused on conquering hair loss and prolonging erections.

When I see women with ridiculously large breasts, I don't get aroused I feel pity for these poor women. How enjoyable can life, much less sex can be when you back is literally grinding itself apart.

Guys, image carrying two-four gallon jugs of water all day!! You get the picture, especially as you grow older. Orthopedic surgeons will be in great demand.

It is nice to see these scientists working on all of the important health concerns of the day. People dying of diabetes, cancer and heart disease will be glad to hear that stem cells are being used to enlarge breasts.
