Grow your own boobs!

Did anyone see the article in the paper yesterday (Adelaide Advertiser but I'm assuming it appeared everywhere as things do these days) about growing your own boobs?  I didn't get a chance to read it properly but will clip it when I go to work today.  I think it was something about putting a framework in and then encouraging certain cells to grow - sounds a bit scary but interesting at the same time.  Again, I only glanced at it, but I believe they are talking about a 4 year timeframe for it to be available and it's aimed at women who have had mastectomies.  If someone doesn't get to it first, I will try to post a copy of the article tonight.

    WOW!   I guess it was always going to be on the cards!!!  They are growing other bits, skin etc - so why not boob tissue?

    I dont know the physiology or biology (whatever the right term is) of the tissue but if my body regrew breast cells/tissue I'd be very worried it would do the same thing as my original breast tissue/cells and grow cancer. I don't trust my body any more so I don't think I could do that. Early days though.

    @j9k That was my first thought too.

    I wonder about that as well but, trying to read between the lines, I don't think it actually has the structure of the original breast tissue (lobules and ducts).
