There's an exciting prospect for breast reconstruction for women. As CBS News Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton explained on "The Early Show" Monday, stem cells and the body's own fat are used to essentially re-grow breast tissue. "A patient's own fat and stem cells are combined in the lab," Ashton told co-anchor Erica Hill, "growth factors are added. It's then injected into a biodegradable chamber in the breast. A blood supply is attached to feed these cells, and in about six-to-twelve months, that tissue then creates the form and shape of a breast."

Wonder if they could try the same thing with stem cells and testicle tissue for GOP congress critters.
This would also work with ENHANCEMENT.
“Are THOSE really all you...?”
“They’re real, and they’re spectacular.”
No silicone; nature at its best.
Always a good thing.
Where’d the stem cells come from?
That is some pretty amazing news.
According to the article, the stem cells come from the patient.
Well, further in the article, they become a bit vague about the source used in the tests.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that prisoners will start demanding we pay for this procedure as part of sex-change operations for bored incarcerees.
Dr. Jennifer Aniston? Are you serious?
Don’t give them any ideas.
Yep, she's been there, done that...and she was wearing the t-shirt when they...uhm...enhanced themselves...
Remember Bruce Almighty?
Well, since I’m a guy, I was wondering if maybe there was a chance...ah...nevermind.
That would be too good to be true.
(Just having a little stem-cell envy.)
Dr. Jennifer Ashton must get that a lot. All that work in medical school and what does she get? LOLZ

Well, I can see where this is going. This is going to become an arms race in 10 years. And just wait until similar technology is developed for men.
Yea. men will need bigger and bigger hands!I thinkin watermelons will be the new standard.Maybe dog the bounty hunter fed his wife some o this?
When they make this available, will women opt for moderation, or go all out?
