Which Breast Augmentation Procedure Is Right For You?
Although many people believe that breast augmentation is all about increasing breast size, that’s just one piece of the puzzle. Breast augmentation procedures have evolved, and the process is no longer limited to patients who want to increase the size of their breasts. Breast augmentation surgery can do so much for you. In addition to increasing or decreasing size, breast augmentation can improve the shape of the breasts, enhance your overall appearance, and correct asymmetry. Most importantly, a breast implant surgery, like the Vampire Breast Lift, can boost your self-esteem and help you feel better about yourself and your looks.
Breast Augmentation Surgery
There are several steps as part of every breast augmentation surgery at Precision MD. First, you receive medications such as intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. This is because we know our patients want minimal risk and downtime, so we offer only “awake” breast implantation. Dr. Khattab and his team have a high level of expertise with this procedure, so you will remain comfortable during the surgery.
Next, your surgeon makes incisions for your implants just under the breast. After your surgeon makes the incision, they will create a pocket under the pectoral muscle of each breast for the breast implants. Finally, they close the incisions. Your recovery time is minimized by this low-impact procedure, which means you can go home sooner than with other breast implant surgery procedures.
What is a Vampire Breast Lift?
Beautiful breasts are not just about size. As we age, sagging breasts and weakening tissues can cause a loss of volume at the top of the breasts and a drop in rounded cleavage. A Vampire Breast Lift can give patients experiencing these problems a more aesthetically pleasing shape to their bust line, and a perkier, firmer look and feel for their breasts. The Vampire Breast Lift does much more than improve the breasts, though; it also helps patients look more youthful overall, with more feminine proportions and a better look in clothes thanks to a better fit. Best of all, this is a no downtime, non-surgical procedure, so you can get right back to your everyday routines.
The Vampire Breast Lift takes place from start to finish in about 30 minutes. It starts with a blood draw being taken from the patient. Once your medical team takes your blood, they then centrifuge it to separate the red blood cells from the platelets, which is what your doctor is after. The doctor then extracts your body’s own growth factors from your platelets by placing them in a solution of calcium chloride. Once the growth factors are extracted, your surgeon will add other ingredients like injectable fillers in just the right amount, and then inject the substance into target areas of your breasts.
Breast Augmentation Versus the Vampire Breast Lift
As you consider whether breast augmentation or the Vampire Breast Lift is right for you, ask yourself a series of questions to determine what matters most to you. Are you hoping to increase the size of your breasts by a notable amount? If so, choose breast augmentation, as The Vampire Breast Lift is a mild boost that is more about shape and plumpness than a notable increase in size. Are you interested in improving your profile but unable to spare any time off? If so, the Vampire Breast Lift is a better choice because it is a no-downtime procedure; breast augmentation, although it is not under general anesthesia, is still a major surgery.
