Insert Inappropriate Joke Here

by Ken Houghton

Stem cells used to boost breasts
[Kotaro Yoshimura, a surgeon at the Tokyo University medical school] said he believed the stem cell and fat combination, which can increase a woman's cupsize by two sizes, was a success.

"There have been no serious complications," he said.

During the operation, surgeons suck fat cells from the stomach or thigh, and this "slurry" is enriched so that there are higher numbers than usual of stem cells.

These are "master" cells which are capable of making new fat cells.

With the obligatory disclaimer:
However, Adam Searle, past president of British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said the development should not be dismissed.

"The stem cell 'soup' is too non-specific to really focus on what you want."
