Stem Cell-Enriched Autologous Fat Makes Permanent Natural Breast Enlargement

VIENNA, October 12, 2010 - Since 2003, breast augmentation utilizing stem cells from autologous fat
has been developed enabling silicon-free breast reconstruction following
cancer surgery. Till now though, it was unclear whether this might reactivate
the cancer again. However, University of Pittsburgh researchers led by Prof.
Albert Donnenberg have now demonstrated that stem cell-enriched autologous
fat is safe even in the presence of inactive tumor cells.

"Breast augmentation with the body's own stem cells is suitable for both
reconstruction after tumor removal and for cosmetic reasons for women wanting
larger breasts or wanting to regain lost breast volume following
breastfeeding and weight loss," says DDr. Karl-Georg Heinrich, a Viennese
pioneer of stem cell breast augmentation.

DDr. Heinrich, who's Clinic has performed such aesthetic treatments since
2007, has long maintained professional exchanges with international stem cell
researchers. The potential of autologous fat stem cells for aesthetic and
therapeutic treatments was discussed with Prof. Donnenberg in 2008. DDr.
Heinrich himself further developed breast augmentation using stem cells and
optimized both the results and patient tolerance.

The required breast augmentation fat is collected by liposuction using
microcannulas and following stem cell-enrichment is injected into the breast
using fine needles. Fatty tissue having good blood circulation is then
developed that enlarges the breasts permanently. The procedure is performed
under local anesthesia or "twilight sleep" and the results are impressive due
to their naturalness and freedom of scars.

The Clinic DDr. Heinrich also utilizes stem cell-enriched autologous fat
treatments for face, cleavage and hand skin rejuvenation; as well as for
buttocks, hips, thighs and calves "body-forming" and correction of dents
arising from liposuction.
