Three Things You Need to Know about the Vampire Breast Lift®
By Warren B. Seiler III, MD
The words “breast lift” may evoke strong thoughts and emotions for patients, such as “scalpel,” “painful,” “surgery” or even “long-term recovery.” Until only recently, you would have been correct. Traditional breast augmentation procedures, while invasive, have been used successfully for decades on patients dissatisfied with their bust size. The Vampire Breast Lift®, an innovative new cosmetic procedure invented by Dr. Charles Runels, is the first non-surgical, non-invasive and no-downtime breast enhancement alternative for patients happy with their cup size, but concerned with the overall appearance of their breasts and cleavage area.
Utilizing the science of platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which harnesses your body’s natural growth factors to regenerate and heal tissue and, in rare cases, expertly injected dermal filler, the Vampire Breast Lift® can visibly improve age- or exposure-related skin deterioration on or between the breasts, and add noticeable volume to give a perkier, more youthful and balanced appearance. This exciting procedure, while new, is quickly revolutionizing the way patients and physicians alike think about breast enhancement.
As with any medical procedure, the unknown often leaves unanswered questions and hesitation. As a certified Vampire® trainer and provider, my goal is to educate patients and increase awareness of this effective procedure so patients are able to make an informed decision about the health and cosmetic appearance of their breasts. Below, I’ve outlined the three most important things patients need to know about the Vampire Breast Lift®.
- The Vampire Breast Lift® is NOT breast augmentation surgery. This perhaps is the most common misconception, given how new and unfamiliar this procedure is. Traditional breast augmentation surgery is invasive and utilized to increase or decrease cup size, while the Vampire Breast Lift® improves the aesthetic appearance of the breasts and cleavage area, and is completely non-invasive, not painful and requires no downtime. Additionally, the Vampire Breast Lift® can repair effectively damaged or thinning skin related directly to a patient’s previous implant procedure, plump the areas where the implant may be showing and even improve nipple sensitivity and/or inversion.
- The Vampire Breast Lift® works through natural and scientific forces. Naturally occurring growth factors are abundant in human blood. These growth factors are the body’s biological weapon against injury and aging, and are the driving force behind all healing which occurs naturally in the body. If you cut yourself, you have these growth factors to thank for the repair work done at site of injury. Thanks to scientific advances, doctors are able to separate these specific growth factors from the blood (platelet rich plasma, or PRP) and utilize them on the dermis, or skin, which improves the look, feel and overall health of the tissue. By injecting PRP into the cleavage area, or the skin between the breasts, and fatty tissue surrounding the breasts, we are able to address skin deterioration and naturally regenerate tissue to improve the breasts’ overall look, texture, feel and health. In certain cases, dermal fillers (Juvederm Voluma) may also be injected strategically to reduce implant–show, improve nipple sensitivity and projection and balance the areola and nipples.
- The Vampire Breast Lift® is completely safe and proven effective. Certified providers utilize a sterile process for obtaining, concentrating and injecting PRP for cosmetic breast enhancement that is FDA-approved, and there has never been a documented complication from its use in any medical literature. Because the procedure utilizes the body’s own naturally occurring growth factors, there is no risk of side effects. It is vitally important that anyone considering a Vampire Breast Lift® consult with a certified registered provider and expert injector. Patients can expect to see a relatively quick improvement in the overall quality and appearance of the skin on and between the breasts, with fine lines and wrinkles diminishing within the first few weeks after the procedure. Over time, continued collagen remodeling will further regenerate the skin, and the breasts’ fatty tissue becomes fuller and perkier, creating a more beautiful and youthful look.
