Sculptra Butt Lift

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in National Harbor Accepting New Patients Near Washington DC, Arlington, Fort Washington, Maryland & Virginia

Sculptra butt lift patient in MarylandNonsurgical cosmetic treatments have come a long way in recent years. They’ve become an extremely effective way to achieve a wide range of aesthetic goals, including an improved buttocks appearance. Traditionally, the primary buttock augmentation options – the Brazilian butt lift and buttock implants – both involved extensive surgical procedures. Now, there is a new alternative that allows you to achieve your desired look without undergoing surgery.

When you undergo a Brazilian butt lift procedure, liposuction is performed to harvest fat from a donor region before it is transferred to your buttocks. However, Sculptra can be used to provide a fuller buttocks shape without the need to harvest fat from a donor region. At Bella Cosmetic Surgery, we now offer this nonsurgical buttock augmentation alternative, which has come to be known as the Sculptra butt lift.

You can learn about your buttock augmentation options and receive individualized treatment recommendations by speaking with our highly-trained staff in person. Please call 301-567-6767 today to schedule a consultation. We serve patients in Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia.

What Is the Sculptra Butt Lift?

Sculptra is a dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth in the skin. Traditionally, it has been used to restore lost facial volume, but recently it has also been used to add volume and definition to the buttocks region. The Sculptra butt lift allows you to add roundness or fullness to a butt that has a flat appearance. Since no fat transfer or implants are involved, your treatment doesn’t require surgery.

You’ll experience many benefits from the Sculptra butt lift, including:

  • Beautiful, natural looking results
  • Minimally invasive method to reshape your buttocks
  • No anesthesia required
  • No downtime and limited interruption to your daily routine
  • Shorter treatment time than surgical buttock augmentation methods
  • Provides a subtle lift and restored volume to the buttocks region
  • Eliminates the risks inherent in many surgical procedures

Am I a Candidate for the Sculptra Butt Lift?

infographic highlighting basic information about the Sculptra butt liftThe Sculptra butt lift is an excellent option for lean individuals who don’t have enough excess fat in a donor region to undergo fat transfer as part of a Brazilian butt lift. It is also idea for patients who would like to avoid surgery and instead prefer a minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatment solution.

In addition, ideal Sculptra butt lift candidates:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure
  • Are able to maintain a stable, healthy weight
  • Would like to improve the shape and fullness of their buttocks
  • Are willing to commit to multiple treatment sessions and be patient while results are achieved in a gradual manner

Your Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure

We will assess and mark the treatment region with you in a standing position. To improve comfort, lidocaine will be added to the Sculptra formula and also placed at the entry points for the delivery cannula. A microcannula, and in some instances a small needle, will be used to insert the Sculptra into the areas of your buttocks where you would like to add more volume.

You will be standing up for a portion of the Sculptra injection, and you will be lying on your stomach for the remainder of the injection. Once all of the Sculptra is placed in the treatment region, we will massage the area for a few minutes.

Each treatment can generally be completed in about an hour. Most patients typically need 2-3 treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. Each treatment will be spaced in 4-6 week intervals.

What Happens at My Initial Sculptra Consultation?

During your consultation with Dr. Chiaramonte, you can expect a thorough discussion that focuses on your desired outcome and how Sculptra may help you achieve that. This will be followed by an examination of your buttocks contouring and overall body shape. The information obtained from these two steps can help the doctor determine the amount of Sculptra that would be ideal for your needs. The doctor will also ask questions about your medical history and medications or supplements you regularly take. He may ask about lifestyle habits such as tobacco use as well. The purpose of this medical history review is to ensure that there are no contraindications to treatment. Our goal in getting to know you and your expectations for treatment is to ensure that you are fully informed and we are on the same page when the decision to move forward with your Sculptra Butt Lift is made. 

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

To begin the Sculptra Butt Lift, Dr. Chiaramonte will perform another examination of the buttocks. This time, he will mark the areas where Sculptra will be injected. You may be standing up or lying down for this part of the process. You will then have a topical anesthetic applied across the marked injection sites. This can take several minutes to reach full effect. Once your treatment area is desensitized, the doctor will administer injections in the designated area. Several injections occur across the target area to infuse a sufficient amount of the collagen stimulator into the tissue. The process can take about an hour and, when injections are complete, the doctor may massage the area to effectively disperse the product in a way that builds contour exactly where you want it. 

What Kind of Scars Will I Have?

One of the benefits of the Sculptra Butt Lift is that injections do not require incisions. You are no more likely to develop scars from your Sculptra Butt Lift than you are to see scarring after getting Botox or dermal fillers. This is because the needle that we use to inject the product is extremely small. For a short time after your treatment, you may notice slight redness or swelling around the injection sites. These minor side effects are signs of temporary inflammation, not scarring. They are expected to subside within 24 to 48 hours.

Why You Should Consult a Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon for Sculptra

The Sculptra Butt Lift may be non-surgical in nature, but it is still deserving of the most discerning eye and awareness of important anatomical structures. Adequate expertise and experience on the part of your provider are critical to ensuring your comfort, safety, and satisfaction. One sign that your Sculptra Butt Lift will be handled with the utmost care is proper board certification on the part of your selected provider. Dr. Michael Chiaramonte is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than two decades of proven experience performing cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. He has a wealth of experience performing buttocks augmentation using buttocks implants as well as the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. This expertise makes him extraordinarily qualified to help you acheive your ideal contours without surgery. 

Recovery after a Sculptra Butt Lift

You’ll see an initial volume increase that is caused by the sterile water used to suspend the Sculptra particles for injection. Your body will naturally absorb this water during the first day or two following your procedure.

We will ask you to massage the treatment area for 5 days after your procedure to ensure the Sculptra particles distribute evenly throughout your buttocks. This will help deliver a fuller, more contoured appearance.

It’s important to be patient. Your results will appear gradually, and the shape of your buttocks will continue to improve as you go for follow-up treatments over the next few months. Once you achieve your final results, they will be long-lasting. Sculptra can provide an improved buttocks appearance for 2-3 years. If you want to maintain your results for longer, you will need to undergo a new series of injections.

Sculptra Butt Lift Cost

The cost of a Sculptra butt lift varies based on your unique aesthetic goals and the amount of volume you want to add to your buttocks. It is common to use up to 5 vials of Sculptra for each side of your buttocks. With 2-3 treatment sessions, this equates to 20-30 vials.

We offer a “volume discount” for these multi-vial injections. In addition, we offer a variety of financing options to ensure your treatment fits into your budget.
