Kim Kardashian's 'vampire facelift' shocked some viewers of 'Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.'
Kim Kardashian underwent a "vampire facelift" on Sunday's episode of 'Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,' and with it, potentially started a new trend for women looking for a little boost. The scary looking procedure is the same one that Oscar attendees received via a gift certificate in their swag bags last month - maybe someone gave their voucher away to Kardashian?
Basically, you slap a load of stuff onto your face and end up looking like a vampire... zombie... thing, but does it work? Dr Jeffrey Spiegel, a plastic surgeon in Boston, has performed the procedure numerous times over the past five years. "What you do is you take out from a person's arm about two teaspoons full of blood - a standard blood draw, like you would get when you go to the doctor - and add some chemicals, spin it down, and separate it a certain way, and you end up with some fluid that can be injected into the face," Spiegel explained." It's similar to - if you ever scraped your knee, that kind of yellowy stuff that you see oozing out of you - it's like that. So then you inject this back in into the area where there are wrinkles." Sounds terrible.
So how much is this procedure going to set back those not fortunate enough to attend The Oscars? According to Yahoo, the "Vampire facelift" comes in it around $1,000, which is comparable to proven fillers like Juvaderm or Restylane. "For a little while, you will see an improvement because you just put an injection in," Spiegel added.
Kim Kardashian is currently pregnant with her and Kanye West's first child. So far, there's no word on the sex of the baby.
