Tummy Fat

Guess what they are doing now? They are taking tummy fat and extracting the stem cells and injecting them into women's breasts to grow more breast tissue. This would be a great discovery for women who have had cancer and had to have a mastectomy. It is still in the experimental stage but if it works, the treatment itself could be done in an hour, over a lunch break. Using fat from a patient's own body to rebuild other areas is not a novel idea, but they often fail because the fat is absorbed back into the body. Scientists are excited about this new study.
