PRP Breast Lift with Dr. Jason Helliwell

The PRP Breast Lift is a non-surgical, no downtime, form of breast augmentation. There are women who cannot afford to take time off from work to recuperate from an aggressive surgical procedure like a breast lift or breast implants. While women may like the size of their breasts, some would like more pronounced cleavage or more volume at the top of their breasts. The PRP Breast Lift is a way to improve the shape of the breasts without invasive surgery.

The aim of the PRP Breast Lift is to do what a well-made bra would do; provide lift and cleavage. Good candidates for this procedure are women who are not looking to dramatically change the size of their breasts. Women who are looking to give their breasts a more youthful appearance are ideal candidates for the PRP Breast Lift.

What Makes The PRP Breast Lift Unique?

The combination of products is what sets this technique apart from its breast lift, and injectable filler, counterparts. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and starts with blood being drawn from the patient. The blood is taken the same way it would be for a normal blood test. Once blood has been collected, it is then centrifuged and the platelets are separated from the red blood cells.

The platelets are then introduced to a calcium chloride solution which causes the platelets to release growth factors. Small amounts of synthetic injectable fillers like Restylane or Juvederm are added to the mixture as well. Once all the ingredients have been combined, a small gauge needle is used to inject the product into specific areas of the breast.

PRP Breast Lift Results

The best part of this procedure is that it’s getting back to what beauty is all about. The PRP Breast Lift works at the stem cell level, generating new tissue. The procedure brings sensation back into the breast, areola and nipples.

Like its hyaluronic acid relatives, the PRP Breast Lift injections will last about 9-18 months, depending on individual patients. Runels iterates to his patients that beauty is never a “one and done” thing; beauty requires tending.

The PRP Breast Lift, like the PRP and facelift, is a trademarked procedure created by Dr. Charles Runels. He trains surgeons around the country how to use his techniques to perform these particular procedures. It is a way to standardize cosmetic procedures so that people from Bakersfield to Florida can ask for a certain procedure and know they are getting the same treatment.
