'Natural' breast implant advance

By Michelle Roberts
BBC News health reporter, in Washington DC

US scientists say they have made a breakthrough to produce natural breast implants using human stem cells.
The University of Illinois team took stem cells destined to become fat cells and grew them on a special gel-like scaffold, they told a US conference.
The scaffold can be moulded into any shape, which means the implants keep their size and shape better than artificial ones.
There is also no risk of rupture and leakage, they said.
