Vampire butt lift for filling?

Vampire Butt Lift
The vampire lift is associated with adding platelet rich plasma to fillers or fat to enhance longevity and improve skin quality. This is unnecessary when injecting fat as the aspirate contains stem cells which are more potent than platelets for this purpose. Fat injection to correct small flat areas is a treatment option.
Other options include the use of the Cellulaze Laser and platelet rich plasma with Sculptra; utilizing two to three office treatments lasting less than one hour will usually produce results for two to three years.
In many instances cellulite in the buttocks and thighs needs to be treated with various modalities in order to obtain desired results. Liposuction/fat injection is beneficial for larger irregularities. Cellulaze or Cellfina will improve skin dimpling and unevenness. Surgeons will usually offer the device/technique that they have available to them and experience with. Post procedure maintenance with a radio-frequency device like Thermi RF, Cellfina or Velashape can afford further improvements.
Please consult in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making treatment decisions.

By 'vampire butt lift' I assume you mean a platelet rich plasma (PRP) mixed fat graft. It has been reported that adding PRP to grafts, such as fat, would increase the percentage of graft survival (the amount of fat that stays following the procedure). However this is an experimental procedure that probably requires extensive research to show if there is any benefit. Further more only certain centers would be qualified under current FDA regulations to make this product as it would require a blood bank license and possibly even a clearance from the FDA to make this substance on site before it is injected into a patient. In my practice I am going to wait to see evidence if this is better than traditional fat grafting. I have seen great results with traditional fat grafting and the use of buttock implants.
