Cosmetic stem cell treatments: popular but untested, senior U.S. surgeons warn
Stem cell facelifts, stem cell breast augmentation, anyone? Why not? After all, it was only last December that American actress and sex symbol Suzanne Somers touted a stem-cell breast reconstruction surgery she had recently undergone to reconstruct a breast she had lost to cancer [see Stem Cell Breast Reconstruction].
The stem-cell breast reconstruction procedure, she enthused, had the potential to “revolutionize breast reconstruction.” In the same breath, she also admitted that she had had a stem cell cosmetic procedure done on her face by the same doctor who had conducted her breast surgery.
