PRP for Breast Augmentation
Screen siren Sophia Loren said it best: “Sex appeal is 50% what you’ve got and 50% what people think you’ve got.”
Once upon a time, cosmetic enhancements were dramatic and instant. Those days are over. Now, patients are looking to subtly enhance what they already have.
PRP [Platelet Rich Plasma] treatments can be used to augment breasts, and are for women who are happy with their size but want to rejuvenate their skin and create the illusion of volume.
The skin around the breasts can deteriorate for a number of reasons, resulting in permanent redness and bumps—what some call the dreaded ‘Turkey Neck’. Chests can be neglected when applying sunscreen and they are prime real estate for sun exposure and damage.
PRP is a breakthrough rejuvenation treatment used medically, for example, to relieve joint pain, and cosmetically.
This is how it works.
Dr. Anna draws approximately 20mls of the patient’s blood and spins it in a centrifuge. This separates the red blood cells from the nutrient-dense yellow plasma. Then, Dr. Anna injects it into the breast tissue and surrounding skin. PRP is best combined with a little hyaluronic acid filler which acts like a ‘scaffold’ that is inhabited by the plasma filler until regular cellular growth is achieved. PRP is a healthy and effective substitute for dermal fillers as its produced naturally by the body.
There is no downtime for this procedure.
The plasma boosts the growth of new tissue in the breast area adding to the fullness of the chest. PRP also rejuvenates the surrounding skin, making it appear more youthful.
For best results, Dr. Anna recommends the patients performs a series of dermal rolling (also known as microneedling). The first dermal rolling session is done at Dr. Anna’s clinic where the microneedling expert can demonstrate the most effective way to use the tool.
