Nonsurgical 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?
The 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.
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.
