There are so many possible treatments to have a fuller, more proportioned butt and you may not know what’s best for you. Brazilian butt lifts, implants, and fat transfers can be good options but these types of procedures run the risk of possible complications. Sculptra Butt Lift is a much different, easier treatment with minimal side effects and downtime. Also less expensive!
What is Sculptra Butt Lift?
Sculptra Butt Lift is a great alternative to getting a fuller looking butt without undergoing surgery. Sculptra is different because it is a type of filler that is injected into the buttocks area and has minimal to no side effects. It is an FDA approved filler (Sculptra for buttocks is off-label) that naturally works with your body to build collagen. While you can see a difference immediately after the treatment, Sculptra takes a few weeks to a few months for the product to start working with your body to build collagen. Final results are usually seen around 3-4 months post treatment. It is carefully injected and feathered in, near the targeted muscles to create a firm and voluptuous look. While this is not a permanent treatment, results last anywhere from 2 to 5 years.
Can Sculptra be used for ‘Hip Dips’?
Hip Dips are a common term used when there is lack of volume between the hip bone and upper thigh area. While it is usually more common in thinner patients, all body types can experience this depression and indentation due to bone structure or low-fat volume present. Since hip dips are caused by pelvic bone structure or lack of muscle-mass, it can seem next to impossible to fix! Sculptra is a proven and easy way to fill in the indentations and give the curvy, hourglass shape you’ve been wanting by stimulating collagen production for volume growth.
While every patient differs, it is usually recommended to start with 6-10 vials at each visit. 2-3 visits are usually recommended.
Who is a good candidate?
Almost anyone can benefit from the Sculptra Butt Lift!
It is an excellent option for anyone who:
- Wants a rounder, fuller butt
- Wants a Non-Surgical option
- Does not have enough fat to be harvested and transferred
- Wants a proportional look, to fill in areas like ‘hip dips’
- Wants to add volume
- Is not interested in getting implants
- Wants a safer, less expensive option
What can I expect for this treatment?
Treatments are usually very quick, only about 30-60 minutes. The area is numbed using a local anesthetic on the buttocks area to avoid any discomfort. You will need to stand up for some of the treatment and lie down on your stomach while the product is injected and feathered throughout the area. Patients typically need 2-3 sessions for optimal results while using multiple vials each treatment. Our consultants will be able to discuss treatment plans with you to ensure satisfaction with your results!
What can I expect post treatment?
It is important to be patient with this treatment as results are not instant. You will definitely see an increase in volume because of water retention but usually subsides after a few days. It may take a few weeks to a few months for the product to start building collagen and be noticeable to you. Side effects are minimal with the Sculptra Butt Lift, unlike implants or fat transfers. You should expect to feel sore post treatment, and can ultimately return to normal activities. You will need to avoid working out for 24-48 hours after your treatment. It is crucial you follow the 5-5-5 rule; massage the area for 5 minutes, 5 times a day, for 5 days to avoid any collagen bumps and to help disperse the product.
8 to 10 vials per visit. Patients generally need 2-3 visits.
