Breast Enlargment Using Fat?
By Dr. Sutton Graham on August 25, 2008
It's an intriguing idea, since grafting one's own fat cells is established for other areas of the body. We use it regularly to enhance women's lips, cheeks, and buttocks. Can you achieve breast augmentation without an implant using only you own fat?
This idea is not new, but its been in the news lately. One recent variation on the technique has included processing some of the removed fat to try to increase its proportion of cells capable of developing and specializing (stem cells). This procedure is being tried in Japan using US-based technology. There is not yet FDA approval or even trials, so its wide-spread use is a few years away.
