What is a Vampire Breast Lift?
A woman’s breasts go through many changes throughout life from development to pregnancy to menopause. The Vampire Breastlift® is a popular treatment at RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment & Wellness Center because it’s a minimally-invasive alternative option to breast surgeries. This innovative procedure uses popular dermal fillers combined with PRP therapy to provide a youthful placement and contour.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, therapy is used for a variety of cosmetic issues including facial rejuvenation, hair loss, and sexual health for men and women. The process begins with a blood sample, which is then processed to isolate the PRP. These platelets contain your natural stem cells, which work to increase the blood flow, collagen production, and nerve sensitivity that revitalizes the area, in this case, the breasts. PRP works to improve your skin in several ways including texture and pigment and can restore lax skin between the breasts as well. This treatment is also used for inverted nipple correction.
The Vampire Breastlift® is best for women who are looking to elevate and increase their breasts without invasive plastic surgery. By combining PRP therapy with commonly-used dermal fillers, we can restore lost volume or enhance the size of the breasts while also addressing skin quality. Most women qualify for a PRP breast lift, but you’ll need to discontinue taking certain medications and supplements such as ibuprofen, aspirin, garlic, and other anti-inflammatories. Dr. Tsitsis will discuss your medical history during your consultation and see if the Vampire Breastlift® is right for you.
How is the Vampire Breastlift® Performed?
The process begins with drawing a sample of your blood from which we separate the platelet-rich plasma using a centrifuge. An anesthetic cream will numb the area, and Dr. Tsitsis will use a carefully chosen dermal filler to “fill in” the sunken areas of your breasts, including the indentations if you have inverted nipples. The PRP is injected into several regions of the breasts to promote tissue regeneration.
The Vampire Breastlift® often takes just an hour and a half to complete. You’ll notice a difference right away, but the PRP continues to promote rejuvenation for up to four months, so your breast lift results will settle in over time. Many of our Bellingham and Burlington patients reach their cosmetic goals with one treatment, but we may recommend two or more depending on your desired results and anatomy.
Recovery from the Vampire Breastlift® is minimal. You’ll likely have some initial redness and swelling that dissipates after a few days, but bruising can take longer, and Dr. Tsitsis has taken the time to put together PRP breast lift instructions, so you know what to expect from your initial consultation through the healing process.

Now is the Time to Get Bikini Ready with CoolSculpting!
The springtime often comes with a renewed energy and longing for sunny days at the pool or beach. This is also the time of year where many men and women get frustrated with their body figure when they look in the mirror or don those long-awaited summer clothes. Diet and exercise are the ideal ways to tone your figure, but the reality is that each person is unique and there are stubborn areas such as the abdomen and thighs that just don’t respond well to traditional weight loss methods. CoolSculpting® is your non-surgical fat-reduction option to get your body bikini-ready by summer.
What to Expect from CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared body contouring procedure that gets rid of diet-resistant fat. The treatment involves controlled cooling plates at precise, low temperatures that target and freeze unwanted fat cells. These pockets of fat are effectively killed during the CoolSculpting® treatment and your body naturally eliminates them over the weeks and months following your session. Once the unwanted fat is eliminated from your body, it’s gone for good. This is accomplished through a process called “cryolipolysis,” which was first discovered when scientists noticed dimples appearing in the cheeks of children who often ate popsicles (hence killing the fat cells in their cheeks, otherwise known as popsicle panniculitis).
This non-invasive body sculpting treatment allows you to sit back and relax while the CoolSculpting® technology gets to work. The cooling applicator is placed over the area with stubborn fat, and the procedure takes anywhere from 35 to 75 minutes. During that time, you can read, watch TV, respond to emails, or even take a nap! There’s virtually no downtime or recovery period so you can return to work and social activities immediately. There can be some redness or swelling, but that will go away in the days following your CoolSculpting® treatment.

The Benefits of CoolSculpting® Treatments
Unlike invasive plastic surgeries such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, CoolSculpting® can deliver results without looking as though you’ve had work done. You may be satisfied with your results after just one CoolSculpting® treatment, but larger areas in particular such as the abdomen will likely require additional sessions to reach your desired results.
CoolSculpting® can address unwanted pockets of fat in these areas and more:
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- “Love Handles,” or Flanks
- Banana Roll (under the buttocks)
- Bra Area
At RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment and Wellness Center, we customize your CoolSculpting® treatment to suit you, your cosmetic concerns, and your budget. We’re the area’s #1 CoolSculpting® practice and have the most highly-trained staff that will tailor a plan to meet your expectations with the best cosmetic treatments and body contouring.
Most patients are candidates for CoolSculpting®, and we will help determine this as well as discuss your medical history and aesthetic goals during your complimentary consultation.

Everyone is Talking About PRP? What is It and What Does It Treat?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is becoming a popular treatment in the United States for hair loss, facial signs of aging, and various sexual wellness conditions. There are platelets found in your blood that contain growth factors. These growth factors stimulate wound healing in damaged tissues by creating more collagen production, causing inflammation, and ultimately, leading to regeneration in that area of the body.
The goal of PRP it to promote the formation of new fibers to tighten, repair, and strengthen your tissues, joints, or hair follicles. At RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment and Wellness Center, we offer six PRP treatments—Vampire Facelift®, Vampire Facial®, Vampire Breastlift®, PRP for Hair Restoration, O-Shot® and the Priapus Shot®
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
The PRP process starts by drawing your blood and running it through a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the platelets. Once the platelet-rich plasma is isolated, we use a topical numbing agent to sooth the area, then inject PRP into the skin tissues. This causes your stem cells to migrate to where the platelets are, leading to the production of new collagen, elastin, blood vessels, nerve endings. This will cause restructuring of the skin and breast tissue, will promote hair growth, strengthen the pelvic floor and enhance your sexual wellness depending on the condition being treated.
PRP for the Face
Our providers use platelet-rich plasma to address several problems on the face such as:
- Acne scarring
- Frown Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Skin rejuvenation (eyes, checks, and midface regions)
Our signature Vampire Facelift® combines dermal fillers with PRP to boost the volumizing effects of the injectables by stimulating your body to create new tissues, blood vessels, and collagen for a youthful appearance that continues to improve for two or three months. Results can last up to two years.
We also offer the Vampire Facial®, which delivers PRP deep into your skin tissues using a microneedling device, which works in a similar way to the facelift. Microneedling provides the collagen and elastin boost, and the platelet-rich plasma activates the stem cells found naturally in your body, pushing them to move to the injection site to restore and rejuvenate the tissues.
PRP for the Breasts
The Vampire Breastlift® procedure is a very popular treatment that is a great alternative to breast surgery if you are just looking for elevation and potentially an increase in size. At RejuvenationMD®, we combine fillers with your platelets to restore a youthful contour and lift while improving skin quality, color, texture, and sensitivity. PRP can address sagging skin in the breasts, treat inverted nipples, and even increase areolar sensitivity.
PRP for Hair Loss
RejuvenationMD® – Aesthetic Skin Treatment and Wellness Center in Washington State also offers PRP for Hair Restoration which utilizes your own platelets to stimulate the hair follicles of the scalp. Many men and women struggle with hair loss (alopecia), which can be hereditary or caused by pregnancy, menopause, stress, autoimmune diseases, medication side effects, chemotherapy, and others. Studies have demonstrated that PRP for hair restoration can thicken thinning hair and decrease the volume of hair loss. This in-office treatment is combined with a laser cap, special shampoo and scalp serum to maximize hair growth.
PRP for Hair Restoration is quite effective for hair loss in the scalp but also the beard and eyebrow regions.
PRP for Sexual Wellness
The O-Shot and Priapus Shots are very popular to help increase sexual wellness. Whether it is lack of lubrication, painful sex, loss of stamina or just a sense of decreased hardness, platelets can help. By simply using your own blood, we can make new nerve endings and new blood vessels contributing to improved orgasms and sensitivity. Your sexual confidence can be restored once again with PRP.
