Sculptra Butt Lift: A Non-Surgical Buttock Augmentation
In recent years, social media has fueled a plastic surgery boom with more and more people aspiring to achieve their idea of a perfect body. One of the hottest growing cosmetic surgery procedures is a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). However, BBL and buttock implants, which are also performed to augment the buttocks, are surgical procedures. But there is also a non-surgical method to add a little curve and definition to your body and achieve your desired buttock appearance without surgery. Keep reading to learn more about the Sculptra Butt Lift, a non-surgical, minimally-invasive buttock augmentation procedure.
What is a Sculptra butt lift?
It is a non-surgical butt lift that utilizes Sculptra, a type of dermal filler, to add volume and give better definition to your buttocks. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) which is a synthetic polymer that has been used as a medical suture material for decades. It was approved in the late 1990s as a facial filler and is now also used for butt augmentation. Sculptra not only adds volume in the treated area, it also stimulates collagen production to rebuild and reinforce the skin’s structure and restore a youthful suppleness and smoothness to the buttocks.
What are the advantages of non-surgical butt augmentation with Sculptra?
When you undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift, the surgeon harvests fat from a donor region such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs where you have excess fat and injects it into your buttocks to achieve a fuller shape. This is a surgical procedure that involves liposuction and fat transfer, and it carries the attendant risks of surgery.
Sculptra is a non-surgical butt lift. It is a minimally-invasive technique that is performed in the office. No anesthesia is required. Therefore, Sculptra butt augmentation eliminates the surgical risks associated with other procedures that are performed to reshape the buttocks. The treatment is faster and there is very little downtime or interruption to your daily routine. A Sculptra buttock augmentation restores volume and provides a subtle lift to give you beautiful, natural-looking results.
Am I a good candidate for a Sculptra no-scalpel butt lift?
A Sculptra butt lift could be an option for you if you are in good overall health and want a bigger butt. This treatment is generally offered to patients who want to improve the shape and fullness of their buttocks with a non-surgical treatment. It is also an ideal option for men and women who do not have enough excess fat in donor areas to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Keep in mind though that a Sculptra butt lift requires 2-3 treatment sessions to obtain optimal results. You should be willing to undergo multiple treatments and see gradual results as opposed to more dramatic and more immediate results with surgical butt lift procedures. Also, you will need to stay at a stable, healthy weight after your Sculptra butt lift to maintain the results.
What happens during a Sculptra butt lift procedure?
There is no special preparation before Sculptra butt injections. Your doctor may ask you to stop certain medications, such as blood thinners, fish oil, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which can increase the risk of bleeding.
On the day of your Sculptra butt procedure, the doctor will mark the areas of Sculptra injections with you standing. The injections are performed with lidocaine local anesthetic for added comfort. Sculptra is placed in strategically planned treatment areas through a small needle or micro-cannula. You may need to be standing for part of the Sculptra injections and/or lying on your stomach. Afterwards, your surgeon will gently massage the area to distribute the filler evenly.
Each treatment session lasts about an hour. Most patients require 2-3 Sculptra sessions to achieve the desired buttock fullness and lift. You will need to allow 4-6 weeks between Sculptra treatment sessions. The only aftercare required after a Sculptra butt lift is to massage the area for 5-7 days. You should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.
How soon will I see the results from a Sculptra butt lift? How long will the results last?
The results of your Sculptra butt lift will appear gradually. While the filler itself will give your buttocks a fuller, more defined, lifted appearance, the increased collagen production over the next several months will continue to gradually improve the shape of your buttocks. The collagen will also improve skin irregularity and texture, helping to reduce cellulite and stretch marks on the buttocks. Follow-up treatments will be needed to achieve the final aesthetic results. Once the treatment is complete, the results are long-lasting. On average a Sculptra butt lift lasts 2-3 years, although in some patients it can be as long as 5 years.
What are the side effects and risks of a Sculptra butt lift?
A non-surgical, minimally-invasive Sculptra butt lift is a low-risk, high-reward procedure. It eliminates the risks of surgery associated with buttock implants and Brazilian butt lifts.
It is common to have some minor bruising and soreness at the injection sites for 7-10 days after Sculptra butt injections. Icing and over-the-counter pain medicine (Tylenol) can help relieve this. You should avoid NSAIDs like Motrin as they can make the bruising worse. In a small number of patients, the Sculptra filler injections can lead to the formation of nodules, giving the treated area an uneven appearance. This can be treated with steroid injections, or rarely, surgical removal. You can reduce the risk of this complication by following your doctor’s instructions to massage the area five times a day for 5-7 days.
