What is the Vampire Breast Lift®?
The Vampire Breast Lift is a minimally invasive, no-downtime breast rejuvenation treatment that uses the science of platelet rich plasma (PRP) to improve the look, feel and fullness of the skin and soft tissue in the cleavage area. This treatment can also restore sensation in the nipples and breasts, and therefore enhance your sexual satisfaction.
During the Vampire Breast Lift, the PRP (painlessly obtained through a small blood draw) is injected into the inner and outer upper-breast area and drives the amazing results of this procedure.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors and cytokines found naturally in your own body, and stimulates and controls healthy regenerative processes, including collagen and soft tissue remodeling, and improves overall health and rejuvenation. PRP has been used successfully for years in surgical and non-surgical procedures to promote improved healing times and optimal results from various procedures.
Why should you come to Dr. Seiler for the Vampire Breast Lift?
Dr. Seiler is an expert injector and trainer for Charles Runels, M.D., the inventor of the Vampire Breast Lift, which, combined with his understanding of the science of PRP, affords him unique expertise in this innovative treatment. He has performed multiple types of breast surgeries, and can educate the patient about the difference between breast augmentation (implant surgery or “breast lift”) versus this treatment. Dr. Seiler also knows how to perform the Vampire Breast Lift safely on patients who have previously had implant surgery.
Prior to receiving any treatment, Dr. Seiler will assess your concerns – including the possibility of surgical issues related to a previous augmentation or the potential need for one. Through our consultation process, we may be able to identify and recommend other laser, light and aesthetic treatments that can address age-related (lines and wrinkles) or sun damage (sun spots or hyperpigmentation) to the skin in the cleavage area. In rare cases, Dr. Seiler may inject dermal filler along with PRP to improve results patients with “implant show.”
How does the Vampire Breast Lift work?
The Vampire Breast Lift begins with a painless blood draw from your arm, allowing us to obtain the Platelet Rich Plasma using an FDA-approved sterile system. While we process the PRP, a medical-grade numbing cream is applied topically to the cleavage area. After you are numb, Dr. Seiler will inject the PRP into the skin and fatty tissue of the breasts. If more volume is needed, Juvederm XC may also be injected in the area.
Who is a good candidate for the Vampire Breast Lift?
The Vampire Breast Lift can enhance the look, feel and fullness of the skin and soft tissue in the cleavage area for:
- Women of all ages and skin types (with or without implants) who desire for their breasts to appear more plump and youthful
- Young women who desire to prevent age-related deterioration of breast tissue
- Middle-age and older women who are experiencing thinning of skin and volume loss due to age and sun exposure
- Women who desire to restore sensation of the nipples and breasts, which can increase sexual satisfaction
- Women who have inverted nipples
- Women with “implant show” or thinned tissue over their breast implants
*NOTE: This procedure will produce great results for women who desire a healthier look and feel of their breasts, versus a significant size increase that may be better addressed through a breast lift and/or augmentation.
What are the results of the Vampire Breast Lift?
The Vampire Breast Lift produces visible rejuvenation of the cleavage area, and is especially successful for patients who seek to improve the appearance of their breasts in revealing clothing (bikini, bra, low-cut gown, V-neck shirt, etc.). Within the first few weeks to months, as the PRP increases blood flow to the tissue, the color of the skin will improve and the tissue will thicken and become less transparent. Over time, fine lines and wrinkles will also begin to diminish through collagen remodeling, and fatty tissue will increase in volume.
Additionally, this treatment may increase sexual satisfaction for both you and your partner. Patients with decreased sensation in the nipple area or inverted nipples can see a significant increase in nipple sensitivity and regeneration of a healthier nipple-areolar complex. Don’t worry, it won’t make the nipple “too” sensitive.
Generally, one to two treatments are recommended to produce optimal results.
Does the Vampire Breast Lift hurt?
Our patients report that the Vampire Breast Lift is very tolerable, with only slight discomfort during the five-minute injection process. Our powerful medical-grade numbing cream reduces this potential discomfort, and there is little to no discomfort afterwards.
What is the downtime after the Vampire Breast Lift?
There is no downtime after the Vampire Breast Lift. Occasionally, patients report some mild soreness for one to two days after treatment. However, you can immediately resume normal daily, exercise and sexual activity.
Is the Vampire Breast Lift safe?
Absolutely! The Vampire Breast Lift is a safe and effective procedure when performed by Dr. Seiler. It can only be offered at a practice (and by a physician in Alabama) that has been educated, trained and certified by Dr. Runels, the creator of the Vampire procedures. PRP uses your own naturally occurring growth factors to rejuvenate tissue, and specifically has been described in more than 20,000 published studies as a safe and effective treatment with no reported inherent complications.
This treatment has not been studied during pregnancy, and therefore Dr. Seiler does not offer The Vampire Breast Lift to pregnant or nursing women. Patients should also have their yearly gynecological/breast exam before receiving the Vampire Breast Lift.
*NOTE: This is an elective procedure that is not yet covered by insurance.
