Stem Cell Research Could Lead to a New Type of Breast Reconstruction

Recent experiments by stem cell researchers suggest that a new type of breast reconstruction and augmentation may be on the horizon:

Trials in breast growth (and re-growth in the case of breast cancer survivors recovering from mastectomies, lumpectomies and quadrantectomies) have been promising. Since the tissues induce the formation of blood vessels, the regenerative cells link the blood supply to the fat cells they’re traveling with, presenting a much lower risk of reabsorption than the injection of fat cells alone. In 2007, a cosmetic surgeon in Japan began a human study and reported that patients injected with the stem-cell-loaded fat solution grew an average of 4 centimeters in breast circumference while the tissue remained soft and natural.

But will it be used for purely cosmetic augmentation; i.e., small-breasted women wanting bigger breasts, or worse, big-breasted women wanting even bigger breasts?

The only problem i can see with this is if the cells ended up being cancerous. Otherwise it is a great idea; imagine all the 'natural' boobies.
