THE PRP BREAST LIFT
Like the face, the body changes as we get older. For women, after breast feeding or with general ageing, the skin of the décolletage and cleavage becomes more wrinkled, accumulates pigment, loses firmness and the shape of the breast collapses as the breast tissue descends. Breast and nipple sensitivity also decreases. Using the woman’s own growth factors in PRP can stimulate the growth of new tissue (skin, fat and blood vessels) to rejuvenate the breasts.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the PRP Breast Lift?
The PRP Breast Lift is a non-surgical, walk-in walk-out procedure that helps lift the breasts by tightening the skin of the décolletage and the cleavage (the part of the breast visible in bras, bikinis and low-cut dresses) using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
The PRP Breast Lift does NOT substitute for surgical breast implants or a surgical breast lift. It can, however, be used after breast augmentation to soften the ripples and hollows of the cleavage around the implant itself.
Specific injecting techniques (and, if appropriate, the addition of a dermal filler or PDO Threads) can also be used to:
- Improve nipple sensation and in some cases 'pop out' inverted nipples
- Restore fullness in areas of irregular contour due to volume loss
- Assist in the lifting of the nipples
At cosmetic MD, we have available a range of complementary procedures such as PDO threads or laser skin tightening to augment the results of a PRP Breast Lift.
What can the PRP Breast Lift do for me?
The aim of the PRP Breast Lift is to replicate the effect of a well-made bra; provide some lift and cleavage.
Women who are looking to give their breasts a more youthful appearance but without a dramatic change in size are ideal candidates for the PRP Breast Lift.
Worldwide experience has shown that the PRP Breast Lift can provide:
- Shapelier breasts
- Decreased skin sag
- Reduced wrinkles
- Reduced vein appearance
- Increased sensation in the breasts
Will the PRP Breast Lift increase my breast size?
If you want to significantly increase the size of your breasts, you will need a surgical breast augmentation.
The PRP Breast Lift is not an augmentation procedure nor is it a substitute for a surgical breast lift. However, the procedure will restore fullness and cleavage for women happy with the size of their breasts with the added benefit of increased sensitivity.
In those women who have already had breast implants and now see “rippling” due to volume loss around the implant, PRP Breast Lift can round off the sharp transition between the implant and the normal tissue.
How long does the procedure take?
Each procedure takes around 60 minutes which includes the consultation, consent and the actual treatment.
The PRP Breast Lift does not involve the use of general anaesthetic.
How long do results last?
Each PRP procedure can last for about 9 months up to 18 months.
We generally advise at least two procedures initially, about 2 months apart, and then an annual maintenance treatment.
What are the possible side effects?
The PRP Breast Lift is a very safe and effective way to lift the skin and smooth wrinkles without side effects. There have been no major adverse reactions reported. The common side effects are similar to those seen after facial filler injections:
- Mild irritation & itching (depending on the sensitivity of your skin)
- Mild swelling
- Bruising (this is caused by the reaction of your skin to the physical injection)

PRP BREAST LIFT CASE STUDY
Our healthy 34 year old lady found after breast-feeding that her breasts had deflated and had started to sag. She did not want a surgical breast lift at the time so we discussed using the PRP Breast Lift. She received 2 sessions of the PRP Breast Lift, 2 months apart. The photographs are 4 months apart.
