More and more women are looking to improve the size and shape of their buttocks without the downtime and risks associated with surgery.
Therefore, patients are turning to the non-invasive Sculptra Butt Lift to give a boost to their backsides.
What Is a Sculptra Butt Lift?
The Sculptra Butt Lift is a non-invasive procedure to augment the buttocks using the long-lasting dermal filler Sculptra. Sculptra (poly-l-lactic acid) works by stimulating the body’s own collagen.
Sculptra is FDA approved to add volume and rejuvenate the face and is now being used off-label to lift and shape the buttocks.
Good Candidates for This Treatment
Women who are at or near their ideal weight and between 25-45 years old are the best candidates.
These patients usually have volume loss due to exercise, caloric restriction, and weight loss, and may not have sufficient transferable fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Patients seeking a Sculptra Butt Lift want to lift their buttocks and improve its texture, while restoring curves for a more feminine silhouette.
How the Procedure Is Performed?
The Sculptra Butt Lift is performed in-office by a trained provider. A numbing cream is applied to the area for 30 minutes and then fine needles are used to inject Sculptra to the upper portion of the buttocks.
Patients typically need three treatments, six weeks apart. Results can be seen as early as six weeks after the last treatment, but it can take 6 months to note the full effects.
What to Expect After a Sculptra Butt Lift
This treatment has minimal downtime with some patients experiencing minor bruising for 7-10 days. Patients are advised to massage the buttocks for 5 days post-procedure.
An infrequent complication is the development of nodules in the buttocks, which may require medical attention to resolve.
The results typically last between 18 to 24 months.
