Anyone tried the "Vampire Breast Lift" post op? (Sounds scary I know) LOL



Recommended Posts

So I've lost a lot of weight and have loose skin and my chest is not as full as it once was. I've lost volume at the top.

I did some research on procedures and came across the "vampire breast lift". Looks like a cool alternative to a breast lift and/or implants for the short term.

Just wondering if anyone has done it or knows anyone who has done it and your thoughts! Love and happiness in your weight loss journeys!

So I had never heard of this and looked into what it was. You definitely want to check your Iron levels and make sure that you aren't anemic at all. In order to get the Platelet Rich Plasma that they use for injection they have to take a good amount of blood and basically spin off all the components of the blood to separate the Platelets from the red blood cells and plasma. I don't know how much blood they need and if they do their own lab work to make sure you're not anemic before they take the sample. Ask a lot of questions! Sounds cool though!

I hadn't heard of it until you mentioned it, so I googled it. I don't think I'd be a candidate as I'm anemic. I am 65% sure I want a breast lift when I reach my goal weight. We'll see.

Thank you ladies, you know I didn't even think of that. I've always been anemic! I'll talk with my surgeon (who does these cosmetic procedures as well) and see what he says and let ya know.

It's just no matter what kind of bra I try they're just not full at the top anymore. It's nothing major, but if this is simple, effective, safe and helps my self esteem...I'm gonna give it a go! We shall see!!! I think eventually I'll get a full blown lift, but I want to be done having babies before I go all out.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
