GEORGE LIAKEAS: This is not your needle. ARIELLE: Okay.
GEORGE LIAKEAS: The hope is that the body will bring new tissue, more blood, more vibrancy
and correct whatever area needs to be corrected. ARIELLE: This is so weird. ARIELLE: You might have heard of Botox, breast-implants and the Brazilian butt lift. Now, there is a new cosmetic procedure on the market and
its brand lends itself to a rather more sinister term. GEORGE LIAKEAS: So, some of the things that
we do here are in what we call ‘the vampire family’ – vampire facial, vampire breast
lift, vampire procedures. It’s basically using the technology and the concept of platelet
rich plasma or PRP. In our blood, we have whole blood and we have plasma and in the
plasma, there are platelets and platelets are one of the key responsible agent for having
your body trigger stem cells. And if we have more stem cells, the thinking is that more
stem-cells bring on fresh, rejuvenated, vibrant tissue in whichever area you put these stem
cells in. COMM: PRP has commonly been used to encourage cell renewal in both dentistry and orthopaedics.
But now, cosmetic doctors are harnessing its powers for those desiring plumper faces – or
in this case, breasts! NICOLE CONTOS: Everybody completes these treatments and they love the results.
ARIELLE: Okay, I’m excited. NICOLE CONTOS: Yeah. ARIELLE: I usually come here for my laser
hair removal; so I saw the vampire breast lift lift in the catalogue. GEORGE LIAKEAS: This is not your needle. ARIELLE: Okay. GEORGE LIAKEAS: Ouch, that does hurt! It is
a nice size needle but that makes it come out much faster.
ARIELLE: Okay. GEORGE LIAKEAS: Now, I’m just going to spin
this blood. We don’t want the red blood part, we want the plasma. In the plasma are
platelets. GEORGE LIAKEAS: Those platelets help stimulate your natural stem cells and that’s what
we are trying to utilise to tell your body wake up, rejuvenate, revive. You’re trying
to get your body to stimulate new fullness which gives the appearance of a lift. NICOLE CONTOS: It’s just noise. This thing
is going to be nothing, I promise you ARIELLE: It’s your blood. It’s not like I’m going to get in implants. I don’t
really want like a huge change to my breasts, that’s why I feel like this is the best
decision. ARIELLE: It wasn’t that bad. It just, I felt it like a tattoo, because they do the
same. Yeah, but less painful. NICOLE CONTOS: Close your eyes. ARIELLE: Oh my goodness! ARIELLE: This is so weird.
NICOLE CONTOS: Look at that. All done. GEORGE LIAKEAS: All right, how was it?
ARIELLE: It’s not as bad as I thought it would be. GEORGE LIAKEAS: Okay. No, that’s, that’s what most people say. COMM: The results of the vampire breast lift
are set to last up to two years. So, for anyone who is willing to part with $1,150 for plumper
breasts, this could be the procedure for you – providing that you don’t have too much
of an aversion to blood or needles. ARIELLE: I was sceptical at first because like blood is not for me and that needle
size was ridiculous. NICOLE CONTOS: It feels like a burning. ARIELLE: It was not as bad as I thought it
would be. Happy I did it.
