Suzanne Somers, like far too many women, has had breast cancer.
This lead to her decision to avoid implants after her battle, because they didn't leave feeling in the breasts — she wanted to try something different.
So she found a doctor at the University of Tokyo in Japan that specialized in stem cells. She brought him to the U.S., hooked him up with an American doctor, and then had to wait for bureaucracy to clear itself.
For three years.
Here's what she says about it all:
"It took me three years of trial and error…[but] in August it came through, I was able to have the surgery.
"They took fat from my stomach—boo-hoo, okay you can have it. In a centrifuge at supersonic speed they [then] whipped out my stem cells, separated them, cleaned them…took the strong ones put them in a small amount of that fat they took from me, and with lack of a better term, with a turkey baster took that concoction injected into this breast and poof, you can see it.
"They made it the size of the other one, it has feeling, it's soft, there are no scars. I think it's the most incredible exciting thing to happen in breast cancer in a long time."
That's nothing short of incredible.
Anyone who is against the study and research and use of stem cells is just crazy! They have so much potential to help!
We're so glad it worked for you, Suzanne! So fab!
