The Stem Cell Enhanced
Natural Breast Augmentation
Stem Cell Breast Augmentation fees estimate between $18,000.00 to $22,000.00. There are several factors that determine the fee schedule such as the number of areas being treated, procedure time and overall goals.
BeautiFill X™, Dr Malan's Stem Cell Enhanced Natural Breast Augmentation, uses a patients's fat tissue, which is a rich source of stem cells and regenerative cells, to provide women the option of enlarging their breast without the use of unnatural implants. These stem cells are not the controversial embryonic stem cells.
First, the Body-Jet liposuction device utilizes streaming water to gently harvest the fat. The fat is then processed to extract and activate the stem cells. The stem cells are then concentrated with the fat and injected in the breast. The injection of the fat along with the stem cells results in a permanent 250cc to 500cc overall breast size increase, which is a 1 or 2 bra cup size increase. A pressure splint is sometimes used after the procedure to ensure that the fat remains in place and assists in promoting regeneration of the transferred fat and stem cells.
The end result is enlarged breasts that are very natural in appearance and feel without the complications associated with implants. Unlike traditional implants, this procedure will not interfere with future Mammograms or breastfeeding. The technique does not require general anesthesia, typically requires only 48 hour recovery period and leaves permanent results.

Q: I have heard that this procedure is controversial?
A: For 20 years the major U.S. Cosmetic Surgery society denounced Fat Transfer to the Breast as a dangerous procedure. This decision was based on technology and techniques used 20 years ago. Recent developments and results from our patients prompted the recent lift on this ban in March 2009. Many Cosmetic Surgeons are unaware of the new and improved techniques or of the recent lifting of this ban and still advise patients against this procedure. The common myths you will hear from doctors who have not followed these recent changes are;
Q: Who is the ideal candidate?
A: Anyone who desires a permanent increase in breast size that is natural in appearance. The Natural Breast Augmentation is ideal for the person who has lost fullness in her breast due to age, weight fluctuations, and breast feeding. A 1-2 cup size increase and more fullness are expected from this procedure. However the person who would not be happy with anything less that a 2-3 cup size increase should consider Breast Implants.
Q: I read most of the fat doesn't survive so more than one surgery is needed?
A: New techniques have proven an 85-90% fat survival. Stem cell techniques in Europe and Japan have shown fat survival to be even higher. The alternative breast implants need to be replaced every 10 years and problems such as scarring and rupture are common.
Q: I heard calcifications caused by the surgery can interfere with mammograms?
A: Studies have proven that newer digital mammograms can easily evaluate calcifications in the breast whereas the alternative enhancement procedure, Breast Implants, block more than half of the breast from the view of mammograms.
Q: Is this similar to the Stem Cell Breast Augmentations being used in Japan?
A: Yes, we offer stem cell enhanced fat transfer which has been proven in Europre and Japan to improve fat survival.
Q: Why should I chose Dr. Todd Malan?
A: Since the recent lifting of the ban on this procedure many doctors have begun offering fat transfer to the breast surgery. The lift on the ban was due in part to Dr. Malan's improved technique and Dr. Malan trains doctors world wide in his procedure. In fact Dr. Malan is the first certified training course for doctors in the U.S. Unless the doctor has been trained by Dr. Malan they are likely using old techniques that caused the ban 20 years ago.
Q: What if I don't really need liposuction but still want a Natural Breast (Stem Cell) Augmentation?
A: Dr. Todd Malan is dedicated to not only giving you natural looking breasts but also great liposuction results. Patients travel from all over the world to have their liposuction procedure performed by Dr. Malan. The stem cell procedure allows Dr. Malan to use far less fat to achieve great results.

1: Body-Jet Water Liposuction gently removes fat, regenerative, and stem cells from abdomen.
2: Cells go into the Stem Cell processing system.
3: The Stem Cell processing system separates regenerative and stem cells from fat cells. The regenerative and stem cells are then washed and concentrated.
4: The concentrated stem cell mixture is combined with the fat cells.
5: The final mixture is injected into the breast, where it replaces tissue volume.
The Stem Cells when injected may the help to:
- Grow new blood vessels to feed the fat
- Releasing anti-inflammatory substances to aid in healing
- Release growth factors to tighten the skin over the breast
*Regenerative and Stem Cell information presented is based on clinical studies conducted in Europe and Asia. Current U.S. studies are underway.
