The timing is perfect, we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into the new non-surgical procedure which has hit the headlines this Halloween (sorry for the pun, we couldn’t help ourselves). A vampire breast lift is a quick 15 minute procedure that involves a doctor drawing a patient's blood from an area other than the breast, extracting the platelet-rich plasma and then injecting the blood back into the patient’s breasts. It's claimed that patients can expect perkier looking breasts, an enhanced cleavage and heightened sensation in the nipples. However, this is not an instant result, it takes roughly two months to start seeing results and only lasts for up to a year. With a price tag of around $1,700 (£1,200) is it really worth it? We imagine it would be like paying for new shoes and not being able to wear them for two months, then having them taken away after a year.
This procedure is carried out by Dr Runel, the same doctor who brought the vampire face lift to the masses after carrying out the procedure on none other than Kim Kardashian. The brutal looking vampire face lift procedure involves patients' extracted blood being injected back into multiple areas of the skin of their face in an effort to treat wrinkles and “rejuvenate” the face.
TThe vampire breast lift is not for the faint hearted. Dr Runel warns that the procedure is not intended as a replacement for implants
as the procedure does not increase the size of a woman’s chest, but rather to improve the perkiness and shape of the breasts. Dr Runel continued, there are two key candidates who are perfect for the procedure; women who have natural breasts who want extra roundness without an increase in cup size, and women who have implants but are looking to correct small defects.
As the procedure is still very new and yet to hit the UK shores, we have very little evidence on the safety of the vampire breast lift and the final results of this procedure.
