The popularity of full, round buttocks continues to grow, but for a long time, most options required significant recovery and had other disadvantages. Now you can have a non-surgical, minimally invasive butt lift with Sculptra®. This dermal filler gives your buttocks a natural-looking lift without surgery or recovery time.
What is a Butt Lift?
With the exploding popularity of large, round, lifted buttocks in popular culture, the demand for butt lifts keeps growing. However, not everyone qualifies for or wants to deal with the recovery time involved with traditional methods of lifting the butt. If you want to see enhancement of your buttocks without the downsides, a Sculptra® butt lift can make a good choice.
How Does Sculptra® Work?
Sculptra® is an injectable dermal filler containing poly-L-lactic acid. It adds volume by stimulating the skin cells to produce collagen. Collagen proteins make up the support network of our skin, giving it firmness and lift. Providers often use Sculptra® to treat deep facial lines and wrinkles. It also works to rejuvenate areas of the face that have lost volume over time.
How to Lift Your Butt
When injected into the buttocks, Sculptra® triggers deeper layers of skin to produce collagen, adding lift and volume. While the results are not as dramatic as other types of butt lifts, a Sculptra® butt lift looks naturally round and firm. Dr. Mashhadian will inject Sculptra® into your buttocks during your 30-minute treatment. You have the option of a topical numbing treatment if you have concerns about discomfort. Most people need more than one treatment to achieve lift and fullness.
Sculptra® vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) uses fat removed from another part of your body using liposuction. This fat is purified and injected into the fat layers of the buttocks. Not all of this fat will stay where injected, but many of the fat cells will establish themselves through grafting. These fat cells add long-lasting volume and lift.
Sculptra® does not require liposuction, an advantage for people who do not have enough fat to inject for a BBL. Recovery time for a BBL also lasts much longer. After a BBL, you will need to sit on a special pillow and cannot lay on your back for several weeks while the fat becomes established. Some people want a butt lift but not a long recovery time, and Sculptra® requires no downtime at all.
What is Recovery Like From a Sculptra® Butt Lift?
You will not need any recovery time after your Sculptra® butt lift. You can return to your usual activities after your treatment. The lack of recovery time helps make the Sculptra® lift a popular option for people not ready to make the commitment to a BBL.
How Much Does a Butt Lift Cost?
The cost of Sculptra® and the cost to perform the procedure will differ from place to place and between providers. Choose your provider based on experience, not price. Dr. Mashhadian has the expertise and artistry to give you an attractive result. According to Healthline, the average Sculptra® butt lift will cost between $4000 and $7000. This will partly depend on the number of treatments, and the amount of Sculptra® needed for each treatment.
What Results Will I See From a Sculptra® Butt Lift?
Results from Sculptra® look more natural and less obvious than results from a BBL. Some people prefer this natural-looking, subtle enhancement. Dr. Mashhadian recommends two to four treatments spaced about three weeks apart to see your best results. Your results will develop over the next four to six months as your body continues to produce collagen and improve the firmness and lift of the skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Butt Lift?
Sculptra® has been FDA approved for facial use since 1999, and it has established an extensive safety record. Most people can get a Sculptra® butt lift. People who are allergic to any of the components of the injection or who are pregnant or nursing are not good candidates. If you have a history of forming abnormal scars, make sure to let Dr. Mashhadian know. You can have a Sculptra® butt lift even if you have a health problem that prevents you from undergoing a more invasive procedure.
How Long Does a Butt Lift Last?
Sculptra® outlasts most dermal fillers, although the results will not last as long as a BBL. Because Sculptra® uses your body’s collagen to create lift and volume, results can last two years or more. You can have maintenance treatments as your results start to fade, letting you continue to enjoy your butt lift indefinitely.
