Is it possible that I can use tissue from my daughter's breast reduction to enhance my breasts?

My daughter wants a breast reduction and I want a breast augmentation or implants. It seems that with today's technology it might be possible to transplant her breast tissue to my breasts. Is this a possibility?

Unfortunately you can't use tissue from another patient to inject into your body.

No you cannot have your daughter's breast tissue transplanted to you. To do so you would have to have significant antigenic testing to make certain that your daughter's tissue is compatible with yours. In addition, breast fat transfer even from your own body fat is not always successful. Considering that you would be transpiring tissue from a different person the chances of survival of the fat even with a tissue match is unlikely.
