Like any other year, 2015 was full of trends when it comes to plastic surgery. One of those trends was the “Vampire breast lift.” Consider a recent article for Cosmopolitan titled “Women Are Getting Vampire Breast Lifts to Plump Their Boobs.”
Loni Venti of Cosmopolitan writes, “Cosmetic dermatologist Charles Runels, who invented the vampire facelift, has recently started using PRP to create fuller, perkier cleavage, and the vampire breast lift was born. By drawing, spinning, and reinserting blood back into the breasts, Runels tells Cosmopolitan.com that he has been able to lift up saggy boobs, increase the shape and look of cleavage, fix inverted nipples, erase stretch marks, and increase breast and nipple sensitivity. The treatment, which costs about $1,800, isn’t a replacement for implants and won’t double your cup size overnight, but it will reshape and round out your bust (Runels claims you’ll look like you’re wearing a pushup bra even when you’re braless). It also helps make nipples rosier, perkier, and more sensitive. Additionally, the VBL has proven to be effective at improving breast implants that have rippled, correcting inverted nipples, and erasing stretch marks. The whole procedure only takes about 15 minutes and hurts about as much as having blood drawn or getting any other cosmetic injectible (imagine a slight stinging, burning sensation). There’s also no down time and full results take about two months (but a difference is noticeable within a few days). It lasts a year or longer and in some women, the results are permanent.”
Refinery 29 also takes a look at “Vampire breast lifts” in a recent article titled “Just In Time For Halloween, Here’s The ‘Vampire Breast Lift.’” Sara Coughlin of Refinery 29 writes, “Dr. Runels came up with the idea on the heels of his Vampire Facelift, which was made famous by the one and only Kim K. For the breast lift, in no more than 15 minutes (and for no less than $1,800), the good doctor draws patients’ blood, extracts platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from their blood, and then injects it back into their breasts. If you’d prefer a more in-depth walk-through of the breast lift, Dr. Runels has prepared a video that is twice as long as the procedure itself. (It’s also great for when you’re having trouble getting to sleep.) 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. Clearly, this is not meant to take the place of a surgical enlargement. Instead, it’s simply a pricey procedure to make one’s breasts better fit an invented standard of ‘breast beauty.’ It takes about two months for the results to reach their peak, and after that, they last for about a year.”
When it comes to breast lifts, you need a surgeon you can trust. Dr. Rex E. Moulton-Barrett, M.D. is an internationally known and acknowledged surgeon. He holds the rare distinction of being board certified in two distinct surgical specialties, The American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
Dr. Moulton-Barrett offers three main types of breast lifts: Donut Incisions, Lollipop or Vertical Incisions, and Anchor Incisions. If you’re considering a breast lift, contact Dr. Moulton-Barrett for a consultation.
