Vampire Breast Lift®
While it may sound like something out of a horror movie, the Vampire Breast Lift® is far from it. It’s actually a unique and innovative way to add volume and a more youthful, plump look to your cleavage that doesn’t involve surgery, implants or even… fangs or a menacing Transylvanian!
LISTEN: Dr. Mahony radio interview about the Vampire Breast Lift®
If you suffer from “droopy” cleavage, diminished curves/fullness, wrinkly chest/cleavage skin, inverted nipples or decreased sensation in your breasts from aging, the Vampire Breast Lift® is made for you. In this quick, in-office procedure, blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors from the blood. The potent growth factors are then injected into the breast and chest area where they activate new blood vessels, collagen and tissue growth in the deep layers of skin and soft tissue over the next 1-2 months. The effects of the procedure (younger, softer skin and thicker more voluminous tissue) can last for 2 years and more!

Dr. Ellen Mahony is one of the board-certified plastic surgeons in the Fairfield County area that is certified to perform this unique procedure that uses a patient’s Platelet Rich Plasma to release important growth factors deep into your skin and soft tissues, encouraging blood flow, collagen and elastin production and a more vibrant, youthful look to the cleavage and breast tissue.
If you want a dramatic change to your breast size or to correct breast sagging, you might want to consider a breast augmentation or breast lift. The Vampire Breast Lift® is a great non-surgical addition to these procedures offering volume to the cleavage area especially and creating deeply-healthy soft, smooth skin tissue.
What is the difference between a Vampire Breast Lift and a regular breast lift?
The Vampire Breast Lift® is a non-surgical, in-office procedure with no downtime. It is perfect for women who want to add some upper pole volume to the top part of their breasts and some curve and shape to their cleavage. It also addresses aging skin or general “lack of luster” of their cleavage. It’s not designed to dramatically lift overall sagging in the breasts or to add overall breast volume. In those cases, breast implants or a surgical breast lift is best. Please come in for a consultation so I can look at your unique anatomy and come up with a plan that’s best for you!
Will I need to have additional injections of the PRP or is it permanent?
With all of my PRP-based procedures I recommend a series of injections – usually two or three – to obtain the best results. In my experience this allows the beneficial growth factors to be stimulated several times and really get to work! Continued improvement will be seen two to three months after your last injection and can last for about 2 years.
Do you also add fillers to the PRP to plump up the cleavage? If yes, why do I also need PRP?
You’ve been doing your research – that’s fantastic! In some cases, I decide to use both filler and PRP during a Vampire Breast Lift®. I inject each one strategically on the chest depending on each individual’s unique anatomy and the results desired. We will come up with a plan together after an in-office consultation where expectations meet with what’s possible!
