It happens to every woman at some point — breast tissue goes from plump and perky to deflated and saggy. It doesn’t happen overnight, but the realization can catch you off guard and have you considering a surgical breast lift.
Before you go under the knife, consider an interim nonsurgical alternative that can improve the look of your breasts and keep them looking younger longer. Dr. Naima Cheema, Dr. Hina Abid, and our team at Nexclin Medicine offer an innovative alternative to a surgical breast lift — platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Here’s what you need to know about PRP breast lifts.
PRP breast lift: Your comprehensive guide
Having flat or sagging breasts can be frustrating — it affects your wardrobe, self-confidence, and body image. Traditionally, breast lift surgery has been the most effective solution, but if you’re not into extreme procedures, you’re probably looking for less invasive ways to reach your goals, and you’ve come to the right place.
Nexclin Medicine’s PRP breast lift is a nonsurgical, safe, and effective way for you to enhance your breasts, providing firmer, smoother, and more lifted breasts.
In this comprehensive guide, we dive deeper into the PRP breast lift, explaining what it is, how it works, and what you can expect from the procedure. We also explain who’s a suitable candidate and provide some tips for aftercare.
What is a PRP breast lift?
A PRP breast lift is a way to boost the appearance of your breasts through injections of platelet-rich plasma, a component in your blood. That’s how it earned its nickname: vampire breast lift.
We simply draw blood from your arm and process it in a centrifuge to extract the platelets. We then inject your platelets into your breast tissue, where they release growth factors that stimulate new collagen, elastin, fibrin, and adipose tissue development, which, in turn, firms, smooths, and lifts your breasts.
The PRP breast lift can help your breasts:
- Look fuller
- Appear lifted
- Have better texture
- Look more toned
- Diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks
Keep in mind that every woman and every breast is different, so results vary.
Who is a good candidate for a PRP breast lift?
The best candidates for a PRP breast lift are women with flattened or sagging breasts who don’t want to undergo traditional breast lift surgery. The procedure can also be a good option if you’ve experienced decreased breast volume due to aging, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.
What can I expect during the procedure?
The Nexclin Medicine PRP breast lift is a quick and straightforward procedure that usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes. First, we numb the treatment area using local anesthesia before injecting the PRP into specific areas of your breasts. Dr. Cheema is highly skilled and has many years of experience creating balanced, symmetrical, natural-looking features, and our patients love and trust the combination of her artistic eye and medical expertise.
You may have some swelling, bruising, and soreness after the procedure, but these symptoms should subside within a few days.
What about aftercare?
After a PRP breast lift, it's essential to follow Dr. Cheema’s instructions carefully. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least a week after the procedure, and avoid smoking and alcohol for at least 24 hours post-treatment. If you experience any unusual symptoms, such as excessive pain or bleeding, contact us immediately.
