What is stem-cell breast augmentation?

Stem-cell breast augmentation that increases your breasts with your own stem cells

Without any breast implants, stem-cell breast augmentation creates voluptuous and natural-looking breasts using stem cells and fat.
As autologous stem cells and fat tissues are grafted, stem-cell breast augmentation hardly causes any rejection reactions or a foreign body sensation unlike breast implants. Although the traditional fat transfer method has high fat absorption rates, stem cells increase the survival rate of grafted fat by generating and stimulating blood vessels on the surgical sites. JW Plastic Surgery designs smooth and beautiful breasts based on its expertise and skills.


Tip. If you want more voluptuous breasts, you can enjoy better effects by undergoing breast augmentation using both breast implants and fat transfer.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can divide to produce other cells or organs. They can differentiate into specialized cells or tissues under the proper conditions and repair damages.
In addition, they produce numerous growth factors that stimulate cellular growth and proliferation. (Growth factor: A significant protein and substance involved in cellular growth and differentiation)

01High survival rate through precise transfer

In traditional autoplasty procedures, a lump of fat used to be grafted. However, JW Plastic Surgery applies micro fat transfer.
After separating fat, it is grafted under the skin using a micro syringe. This procedure minimizes pain but maximizes the survival rate of transferred fat.

02Customized equipment

It is important to separate stem cells fast and efficiently and to secure enough stem cells. JW Plastic Surgery uses different stem cell harvesting methods depending on the body parts.


  • 01 Collection of adipose-derived stem cells (SmartX) It reduces damages and losses of adipose-derived stem cells and minimizes potential contamination.
  • 02 Collection of blood/bone marrow stem cells (SmartPrep2) Collected cells are grafted within 15 minutes after separation, concentration, and amplification. Therefore, the surgery duration is short and patients recover from an operation fast because healthy stem cells are used. This safe and effective procedure does not require any additional culture or refrigeration process.
  • 03 Fat collection and separation (Harvest Jet 2) We use Harvest Jet II (Bodyjet evo), the latest model of Human Med of Germany, so as to collect enough fat with minimized incision. We harvest fat using the waterjet method to improve the survival rate of fat cells and minimize cell damages. Using LipoCollector, we separate fat fast, minimizing contamination.

03Use of disposable medical supplies

When stem cells are separated from fat, they may be contaminated.
JW Plastic Surgery uses disposable medical supplies only during an operation.

04Smooth liposuction

Some patients experience bumpy and uneven skin after liposuction on their thighs or abdomen. JW Plastic Surgery performs in the shape of a fan to create smooth body lines.

We recommend stem-cell breast augmentation to the following people.
  • 01Those who want to undergo breast augmentation without breast implants
  • 02Those who want breast augmentation and body contouring for the lower body at the same time
  • 03Those who want to reconstruct their sagging breasts after breastfeeding
  • 04Those who want natural-feeling and natural-looking breasts
