Surgical treatment could allow women to re-grow their breast.

When women have a vicious breast cancer attack, nothing to done except to remove the breast that called mastectomy. So, mastectomy was the most frighten things for all women. But women can feel of worry. Now, scientists have developed a revolutionary surgical treatment that could help with breast re-growth among breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies.

While it may be three years before the breast re-growth treatment is fully developed, human trials for the procedure will soon begin, which involves inserting a biodegradable chamber into the patient’s chest. The chamber is contoured to match the woman’s breast shape, and contains stem cells from her own fat tissue to aid in breast re-growth—the cells should divide and grow to recreate the permanent fat found in breasts.

Phillip Marzella, of the Bernard O'Brien Institute of Microsurgery, said in an interview with ABC radio: “We are hoping to move on to other organs using the same principle – a chamber that protects and contains cells as they grow and they restore their normal function. So it is a pretty major leap for regenerative surgery and medicine.”
