PRP for Breast Enhancement
You’ve heard about it on social media and seen it in the beauty magazines. With PRP breast enhancement platelet rich plasma is injected beneath the skin into the upper areas of the breast. Blood flow and collagen growth are stimulated with a resulting improvement in cleavage and fullness. Some physicians believe that PRP can even provide a gentle lifting effect. Numbing cream is applied prior to the injections so you’ll have a comfortable experience and there’s no need for other anesthesia, stitches or scars. PRP isn’t a replacement for implants and it won’t provide a dramatic increase in size but it can improve both your shape and the appearance of the overlying skin and even make the nipples perkier and more sensitive.
PRP for Breast Enhancement FAQ
How long will my PRP breast enhancement results last?
The results last about 1 year. Some patients will request a booster at six months for added collagen formation.
What is the recovery period for PRP breast enhancement?
While some bruising and swelling can occur, there is virtually no recovery to speak of. Patients can resume full activities the following day.
How long does the procedure take?
The topical anesthesia cream requires under an hour and the procedure itself takes about 15 minutes.
Can PRP be combined with other breast rejuvenation procedures?
Some physicians believe that when Platelet Rich Plasma is combined with fat transfer to the breast, the growth factors may result in enhanced fat survival and skin rejuvenation. The result is not just a size change but also an improvement in shape and skin texture. Because Dr. O’Connell is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon he can tell you when other procedures such as more traditional breast augmentation and lifting would be best to achieve your aesthetic goals.
