Doctors can regrow breast tissue after surgery

from The Age

Melbourne, Australia, surgeons have partially succeeded in regrowing breast tissue using a patient's own fat cells in 1 of 5 women involved in a pilot trial after cancer surgery. Surgeons implanted each woman with an acrylic breast-shaped chamber, into which they redirected blood vessels attached with the patient's fat cells from under her arm. The technique, called Neopec, has been tested on five women over the past 18 months in the hope it could help them regrow breasts after a mastectomy, as an alternative to silicone implants. more
