Remember vampire facials — those sketchy-looking anti-wrinkle treatments invented by cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Charles Runels and made famous by Kim Kardashian’s Instagram? Well, it seems Runels is at it again, but this time he’s turned his attention toward improving another popular cosmetic procedure among women. That’s right! Women can now schedule their first vampire breast lift right in time for Halloween, but let’s take a look at the actual procedure before anyone forks over $1,800.
Runels’s vampire face lift procedure is performed by drawing blood from a patient’s arm, putting said blood in a centrifuge to separate platelets from red blood cells, combining those platelets with hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, and injecting the finished product back into the patient’s face. He is now saying that his platelet-rich procedure (PRP) can also be used to lift saggy breasts, improve the shape and look of cleavage, fix inverted nipples, remove stretch marks, and increase breast and nipple sensitivity.
“The procedure is NOT for women who are elderly or even younger women with very pendulous breasts (not much shape and just hanging down),” Runels told Metro.co.uk. “But it does do MIRACLES for women who have lost sensation after breast implants, and for women who have still a nice shape but the implants are five to 10 years old (or even recent) and there’s some shortage of tissue so that there’s not quite the beautiful contour that’d you’d see without implants in a younger breast.”
The 15-minute procedure is commonly performed on women who have undergone breast augmentation and are looking for upkeep. Runels said that patients will notice a difference within just a few days, but full results will take up to two months. Although some women claim to have experienced permanent results, the effects are said to last for at least one to two years.
