Adult Stem Cell Breast Augmentation Performed
Last Thursday, this space discussed the use of stem cells in tissue rebuilding, with a liposuction procedure to obtain your own stem cells. For about ten years now, plastic surgeons have been working on ways to extract and use a person’s adult stem cells — both for repairing tissue after a disfiguring accident or a surgery like mastectomy, and for cosmetic body enhancement.
In Boca Raton yesterday, a breast enlargement was performed without using breast implants. Instead, fat was taken from the woman’s hips and thighs using tumescent liposuction and the adult stem cells were extracted from it. They were processed and used to create two grafts which were then inserted back into the breasts.
This enlarged the breasts by one cup size. The adult stem cells in the grafts will adapt to their new environment and create new breast cells. This will maintain the new breast size indefinitely. The body does not reject the grafts because it is the patient’s own tissue. Please see our previous blog for more information.
Superior Volume Retention
Physicians involved with this procedure estimate that with the stem cells being specially processed for a graft, the fat volume retention rate will be about 80 percent more than in standard fat grafting procedures currently being done. This would be a great benefit for both reconstruction and cosmetic enhancement of the body.
This breast augmentation was done by a member of a network of physicians who have been working on adult stem cell services. They offer genetic profiling, stem cell collection and processing, and cryogenic storage of your stem cells for future use.
This stem cell breast augmentation is not yet available to the public. It is not specifically FDA-approved because the FDA is only looking at stem cell use for disease treatments. However, it is legal in the U.S. and is being done in other countries.
