The Japanese stem cell debate: how does it affect boobies?

Stem cells used to boost breasts
Scientists in Japan claim to be able to increase the size of a woman's breasts using fat and stem cells. It is hoped the method could prove a more natural-looking alternative to artificial implants filled with salt water or silicone.

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. When the enriched stem cell mixture is combined with normal fat tissue, it can then be injected into the breast area.

    Can we just ship them twinkies for the fat making, and they can use their stem cells to send us back delicious transplantable kidneys and such?

    This only means a similar procedure is on the horizon for increasing the girth of the penis. Adjust your spam filters accordingly.
