London, Sep 14 (ANI): Here's some news that will bring double joy to women: a "two in one" boob job technique that uses unwanted fat from other parts of the body has been developed.
The breast enlargement operation takes excess fat from the thighs and stomach and moves it to the bust.
The pioneering technique has been tested in Britain and the U.S. and is expected to be offered to British women by early next year.
And it is believed that the effects are "astounding", resulting in larger breasts that look and feel just like normal as no implant has been introduced into the body.
Experts have predicted that the procedure, which might cost around 8,000 pounds, will eventually overtake implants to dominate the cosmetic surgery market.
According to the Harley Medical Group, the technique has originated from reconstructive surgery and was tested in Britain after a 10-year study on global developments in fat grafting.
They said that the results experienced by patients in the US and UK, who had the procedure four or five years ago, have shown that the effects are lasting.
Two of the Harley Medical Group's surgeons have now been trained in the procedure in the US, while eight more surgeons are set to join them before the end of this year.
"This is the most exciting breakthrough in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery that I have seen over the last two decades," The Daily Express quoted chairman Mel Braham as saying.
"Following some final reviews by our medical board, we should be in a position to launch this procedure in the UK early next year," Braham added.
Dr Zdenek Pros, a consultant surgeon trained in the procedure, said: "This type of augmentation technique is very effective in enabling surgeons to shape the breast and achieve smooth, natural-looking contours." (ANI)
