A British surgeon has developed a breast enhancement operation without the need for implants, a media report said.
Professor Laurence Kirwan takes tissue from underneath the breast and places it above the nipple to give a fuller look, reported telegraph.co.uk.
Kirwan, who has a practice in New York and another in London will discuss the operation at an American medical conference next month.
The technique is one of the emerging methods surgeons are developing to create fuller breasts naturally and without the need for silicone implants. Other techniques involve moving fat from elsewhere in the body and even using stem cells to grow new breast tissue.
"What I do is to move around some of their assets to produce the best effect. What we are doing is moving tissue so that the skin is tightened below, pushing the breast up and filling it out," said Kirwan.
"For a lot of women this will be the ultimate breast enlargement operation that will be almost permanent compared to the use of implants which need replacing after around 10 years," he added.
The surgeon, who has done 150 operations so far, claims the results so far have been excellent.
The operation lasts approximately three hours.
