As women go through hormonal changes brought about by the aging process, pregnancy, breast feeding- the shape, volume and size of the female breasts changes, skin texture changes as well as gravity related drooping of the breasts also occurs. The standard treatment for such changes are breast implants with silicone or autologous fat transfer to the breast which correct most of the changes noted above. However, in some cases, the loss in volume or drooping of the breast or skin texture change is not prominent enough to require implants or fat transfer. In such cases augmenting volume with the vampire breast lift may be the answer.
The Vampire breast lift is a treatment that involves obtaining platelets from patients blood, concentrating the platelets by spinning the blood in a specialized centrifuge and injecting the concentrated platelets called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the areas of volume loss in the breast once it is activated with calcium chloride.
The main area of focus is to replace volume loss in the cleavage area of the breast, and in some cases , in other areas of the breast where there is obvious volume loss.
The PRP once injected into the breast releases growth factors that improves blood flow to the area and help stimulate the growth of new tissues.
The main benefit of the vampire breast lift is to enhance the shape of a woman’s breast. It is ideal to add and improve the shape of the breast in areas where there might be a disproportionate amount of volume loss especially around the cleavage area.
Unlike fat augmentation or silicone augmentation, the vampire breast lift is not ideal to increase the global size of the breast.
A vampire breast lift can revert an inverted nipple, increase the sensitivity of the nipples, improve the rippling effects sometimes seen after silicone implants and can help with stretch marks seen on the breasts of some women.
