Stem Cells Get Practical - Liposuction And Breast Enhancement All At Once

    There was once a controversy about human embryonic stem cell research - former president Bush put in place limited forms of research in 2001, to the outcry of science advocates who vilified his close-mindedness and then president Obama put in place limited forms of research on Friday and science advocates cheered the progressive thinking in his deft handling of the NIH policy.  Yeah, you are probably confused in that 'why it was wrong for Bush to limit research in 2001 and why it is right for Obama to do it today' thinking of people who basically just frame their science positions through their politics.

    It turns out we could have solved the whole culture war mess (though would we even have science blogging without Bush?  100 years from now, historians will look back and conclude that science owes Bush a lot) by just making stem cells practical - none of this 'maybe if we throw a lot of money at it we will cure something' stuff but something truly beneficial for men and women, Republican and Democrat.  Namely, by using their value in breast implants and liposuction.   ALL AT ONCE.

    I used all caps there, people.  On other science sites, that's a call to arms.

    I'm not kidding.  DDr. Karl-Georg Heinrich, Vienna-based expert in cosmetic surgery and anti-aging, can use someone's own stem-cell enriched (well, these are adult stem cells but it doesn't matter - if you studied your science 'framing' you know that positive studies about adult stem cells were always referred to as just 'stem cells' and positive results about embryonic stem cells were clarified completely in order to confuse the population and yell at Republicans about science)  fat, harvested by liposuction, and then make bigger boobs.

    Let's go over the  process.   First, the fat is harvested by liposuction using dedicated microcannulas. Stem cells are extracted from one portion and mixed with the rest of the fat. Then that stem-cell-enriched fat is injected into the breast: No scalpel, no foreign substances and no scars.   The stem cells will grow into new, living tissue.

    He is going to get the biggest Nobel prize ever.

    It's just a  local anesthetic and the woman (or man?   I want the calves I had when I was 23!) goes home in a few hours, thinner yet magically larger breasted just as nature (or God, if you go that way - we keep it neutral on that stuff so who am I to say what kind of bust your deity prefers?) intended!

    It's a family site so I can't actually post the 'before' and 'after' pictures here but I can link to them from his site.   Of course, if you're a man you may see them and scratch you head and think you only see 'good' and slightly 'gooder', since they are breasts but, trust medicine on this, they are better because they are purchased.

    My favorite part; he approaches this like an airline.  Yes, you can get coach-class stem cell breasts or get the real VIP treatment.   Seriously, he calls it VIP on his website.   

    Between First and Economy classes there is 'Business' - I guess we know what that means.

    He has his fans.   "Mrs. Kunz, 32" swears by him: "I feel great with this kind of therapy. My ability to concentrate has increased and I feel very alert. The only side effect I noticed were sleeping problems in the beginning of the Therapy."  Sure, she was probably out all night showing off her new rack.

    You may be concerned about risks.  Not to worry, Heinrich states "Safety and stability of the results have been proven in studies in the USA and Japan."   I couldn't find any studies but if you can't trust Viennese cosmetic surgeons, who can you trust?

    In the US, when we have articles about bat kids in caves or Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden getting married, we attribute it to some obscure town in Russia.  In Austria, an obscure town in Russia is named America.  


    That shows how far we have fallen.    Thanks for that too, Bush.    Luckily we'll soon be on the right track again, assuming pirates don't kidnap us all.


    liposuction is an effective method but we shhould care about basic rules.

    * First as we sad before refer to the best plastic surgeon in your city/town

    * Know your body, know the procedure. If you are going through liposuction you should train yourself about your anatomy. (What is fat?, what is epidermis?what is tummy? What is abdominal area? What is Anesthetic? What is complication? etc..)

    * Make sure that you are physiologically ready for liposuction

    * Before the operation don’t expect too much

    * Following the first physical examination pay attention to your surgeons’ recommendation on which part of your body is priority.

    * Ask your surgeon every detail about the operation (don’t hesitate to ask too many questions)

    * Before and after surgery, follow your physicians’ instructions very carefully
    LOL, funny article, but it's a proof of your incompetence too that you were not able to find the studies showing the persistence of the augmentation and the safety of the procedure! What does the word "scientific" in your website's name stand for if you seem to be unable to do a simple lookup on studies about the topic? --Petr

    Uh oh.  Does this mean we will only get get coach-class stem cell breasts now?   

    Sugar pills are safe too.  It is not good science to say they result in superior breasts.   What does 'persistence' mean?  Will they outlast a nuclear holocaust better than cockroaches and Twinkies?
    maybe researchers like You that seem to be unable to find scientifical studies on the web are one of the reasons why the US has been falling behind Austria when it comes to cutting edge aesthetic technology?
