What is the Vampire Breast Lift? Just like the Vampire Facelift, it corrects size and shape. Correction of irregularity in structure, stretchmarks, color, texture and tone. Correction of thinning skin, rippling, contracture of skin, scarring in and around the breast.
How does it work? Pluripotent stem cells are fertilized by your platelet rich plasma and release over 20 different growth factors.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma? It is naturally found in your blood. Plasma is spun down from your blood in an FDA approved device and specially placed in your body to heal and repair the tissue. This repairs the tissue based on your specific genetic coding.
Is it permanent? Yes. But your skin will continue to age as usual depending on how you take care of your body.
Is it Safe? Well, Yes in theory. The VEGF growth factor has the same effect on breast tissue as does tamoxifen. It has been used with fat transplants for over 10 years. It has even been used in women with previous breast cancer and has been found to be safe. Now the Vampire Breast Lift is even less invasive… this is exciting news! Platelet Rich Plasma has been used in previous lung cancer and parotid gland cancer patients.
Does it hurt? Plasma injection does not hurt. We work with our patients to make this and all of our procedures as comfortable as possible.
What age should I consider having this done? Any age can benefit from Platelet Rich Plasma. Soft supple breast with adequate cleavage and clean clear skin is what most women consider important in any age. That is the blessing of PRP therapy: it is genetically designed to correct your own imperfections and grow new tissue.
Yes, this can be used to correct imperfections in patients that have had previous augmentation done. Why? The tissue around the implant continues to age. Skin becomes thinned out, fat atrophies and retractions can occur.
Keep in mind, the Vampire Breast lift is more of a polishing procedure. If you want large volume correction you need to look at having a breast augmentation.
