Has your breast shape changed, becoming collapsed and droopy? Has your breast sensation decreased due to surgery, implants, breast feeding or age? Do you have inverted nipples? Is the skin of your cleavage wrinkled and deflated? Then the Vampire Breast Lift might be right for you!
Dr. Barson at Surface Medical Spas has performed thousands of Natural Breast Augmentations, where fat is taken from an unwanted body area and then is transferred to the breasts. To help survival of the transferred fat, the fat is usually mixed with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).PRP is normally in our blood and is generated as part of the normal healing process and so would enhance the immune system. When women undergo fat transfer to the breast, the surgeon can mix the fat with platelet-rich plasma to increase the survival of the fat.
Following our success in using PRP in addition to our Natural Breast Augmentation, implementing PRP techniques for patients looking to improve the appearance and sensation of the breasts without dramatically increasing the size of the breasts was only natural.
When considering a natural way of improving the appearance of the breasts we would ask our patients to consider which procedure will provide their desired outcome. So, at Surface, we provide you with a choice of either enlarging your breast with your own fat or using your own blood components to help rejuvenate the breast in a more subtle way.
1. Natural Breast Augmentation: Increasing the size of the breasts by using fat transfer.
2. The Vampire Breast Lift®: (a way of using PRP without liposuction or fat transfer to rejuvenate the breast).
Are there any side effects to the Vampire Breast Lift ®?
The Vampire Breast Lift ® has never been associated with any serious side effects.
How is the Vampire Breast Lift ® done?
First, the surgeon isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood in the form of platelet rich plasma. When these growth factors are activated and injected, then stem cells in the breast fat become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue (for smoothness), and new blood vessels (for a healthy glow). This is a way of using your own platelet derived growth factors to stimulate the body’s mechanisms that repair and rebuild tissue. This is essentially tricking the body to think it is injured. This results in new tissue
Using numbing cream and a very small needle (for almost no pain), the physician injects the woman’s own growth factors back into her breast, usually along with some Hyaluronic acid (like Juvaderm filler) to provide a framework for the tissue to build. These growth factors can activate multipotent stem cells already in the fat (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should generated). The cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured!
