Eco-Friendly Breast Implants

After 20 years of advising surgeons not to use a patient's own fat to create bigger boobs, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has reversed its decision.

Apparently the whole issue of radiologists not being able to distinguish between calcium deposits (caused by dead fat cells) and a cancer has been resolved.

So, now you can move that extra fat from you thighs (or wherever) to make your breasts bigger, while cutting down on your carbon foot print at the same time.

But there are pros and cons. The good news: you don't have to worry about an implant breaking or hardening. The bad news: It’s usually more expensive than implants, it takes a year to see how much fat survived, and breast volume can fluctuate with weight.

That happened to one of Dr. Scott L. Spear's patients.

“They decide to run a marathon and their breasts go away,” he told the New York Times.
