Vampire Breast Lift®
The Vampire Breast Lift® procedure involves using PRP to rejuvenate and enhance your natural breast shape.
About the Procedure
During the first part of the Vampire Breast Lift® procedure, Dr. Kress will evaluate your shape to determine where your shape can be enhanced to create a younger, more attractive appearance.
After this evaluation, Dr. Kress will harvest your own blood (hence the name Vampire) growth factors that your body would normally use to heal damaged tissue. First, he draws about 2 teaspoons of blood. Then, using a centrifuge, he isolates platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)–all within about 10 minutes in the office!
Next, he uses a calcium chloride solution to “activate” those platelets to cause the release from the platelets of at least 8 growth factors that would normally be used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen & new blood flow. To rejuvenate new skin, these growth factors must be put back into your breast tissue.
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), Dr. Kress injects your own growth factors back into your breast in a particular way. These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated).
There is no recovery time for this in-office procedure. Once completed, women return to their normal activities or routine. The full results are evident within about two months but you can see the progression as they improve. Most Vampire® Breast Lifts last up to two years.
After undergoing the breast lift, patients can expect their breasts to appear perkier and rounder; any scars or stretch marks should be less visible, and nipples may be more sensitive.
Vampire Breast Lift® FAQs
Will a Vampire Breast Lift® give me larger breasts?
This procedure is not designed to dramatically change the size of the breasts, but rather to provide a shapely lift and stimulate the growth of new tissue.
What are the possible side effects?
Although the name is a little frightening, the procedure is a very safe and effective way to lift the skin and smooth wrinkles without side effects. There have been no adverse reactions reported. The common side effects dealing with any sorts of facial filler injections:
- Mild irritation & itching (depending on the sensitivity of your skin)
- Mild swelling or edema
- Bruising (this is caused by the reaction of your skin to the physical injection) – the procedure is a very safe and effective way to lift the skin and smooth wrinkles without side effects.
