Many New Yorkers want a buttlift but don’t know where to start and how simple it can really be. A buttlift was once only possible through plastic surgery, involving invasive procedures, butt implants, and fat transfers. With the advent of Botox and Juvederm, another butt enhancing treatment came to light, called Sculptra. Sculptra injections were first developed as natural alternatives to traditional dermal fillers to enhance volume that had been lost in the mid face and cheeks. Today, Sculptra injections are used in various treatment areas, one of the most common treatment areas being the butt. Sculptra allows you to get a buttlift without having to undergo any kind of invasive plastic surgery. Sculptra is made from Poly-l-lactic acids, which are naturally found in the body. Poly-l-lactic Acid (PLLA), a dissolvable suture material, that has been used for many years by plastic surgeons and dermatologists. PLLA is a biodegradable micro particle as well as a synthetic polymer that belongs to the AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) family. Sculptra is a tool that can be used to improve the quality of not only facial lines and wrinkles or to increase the volume of facial areas that have begun to hollow, but also to define and enlarge the size of the buttocks. Volume loss is part of natural aging and can be seen not only on the face but also in the buttocks.
Many patients struggle with sagging and flatness in their buttocks. Sculptra Aesthetic, an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler, has a unique gel formulation that promotes natural collagen production. This means that even after you have stopped receiving Sculptra injections for a few weeks, new collagen will continue to form and your buttocks will get larger over the course of 1 – 3 months. This procedure also improves skin laxity by increasing the volume. Sculptra injections used for butt augmentation are an alternative to enhancing your derriere. They give you a smooth silhouette with minimal downtime, especially compared to the more invasive surgical alternatives.
With summer approaching, Sculptra injections are the ideal procedure to rejuvenate your body and create a rounder buttock. If you are looking to contour, shape and enhance your buttocks because of an imbalance in proportions, Sculptra injections are the best option. Sculptra injections are a safe and effective cosmetic procedure to achieve a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) without having to undergo the surgery. This procedure involves several injections of several vials of sculptra into your buttocks. To achieve the best results, it is recommended to do four to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Sculptra injections can be used as an alternative to a buttock or fat transfer surgery. Sculptra injections stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production and work over time to improve the shape of your buttocks.
What is the Sculptra Butt Lift?
The number of NYC buttlifts has been increasing each year, with buttock augmentation becoming more popular, especially since the Kardashians and their infamous butts. The Sculptra Butt Lift offers a non-surgical option to traditional surgical buttlifts or Brazilian butt lifts. The treatment uses Sculptra injections, poly-l-lactic acids that are injected into the dermis, which is the layer beneath the skin of your buttock. The Sculptra stimulates collagen production beneath the skin. This results in a tighter and curvier buttocks. Sculptra injections for buttocks are suitable for anyone who has little to no fat and wants a non-surgical enhancement to their derriere. Sculptra helps restore the youthful contours of your butt by increasing the skin’s thickness and volume. Sculptra is strategically injected in specific areas to build collagen. This results in sculpting your buttocks and correcting hollows. It also improves stretch marks and reduces cellulite.
What are the Benefits of This Procedure?
Sculptra butt lift injections provide subtle and natural looking results that are free from complications and have minimal downtime. The unique ability to stimulate the body’s collagen can give you a better lift, appearance, and plumpness. The natural, imperceptible improvements in the treated area will be seen as Sculptra’s effects built up over time. Using Sculptra Butt Injections, you can increase your volume and lift your buttocks in as little as three sessions.
How many Vials of Sculptra are Needed for A Butt Lift?
The desired outcomes and roundness of the patient’s buttocks, as well as the patient’s response to the overall treatment will determine the number of vials required. There are an average of 10 vials used per treatment, which is distributed through 5 vials per buttock. You may need fewer vials for areas that are smaller and require less volume, for example hip dips, which are characterized as the little dips that some people have in their hips, which takes away from that often desired ‘hourglass’ figure. You can use up to 60 vials over the course of several sessions, utilizing only 10 vials each side. For dramatic results, depending on your needs and proportions, you may need as many as 60 vials. The effects of Sculptra butt injections take a while to create collagen and noticeably increase the volume (namely up to three months). To achieve the best cosmetic results, it is necessary to repeat the treatment as many times as needed to see results, which can be up to four or more times.
Are there Surgical Alternatives to Sculptra Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift (also called BBL), is a type of cosmetic surgery that can be used to improve the appearance of a larger derriere and increase it in size. The Brazilian Butt Lift uses liposuction to remove fat from one part of the body (typically the abdomen, back, arms, or thighs), which is then purified and injected into another part of the body, namely, the buttocks. The fat is taken and placed in the area to be treated, resulting in a larger backside and a smaller waist.
Liposuction can be dangerous. You will likely need to have general anesthesia due to its invasive nature. There is also the possibility of loss of all sensation in the area due to nerve damage, and the worst possible risk of this procedure is death. Brazilian Butt Lifts have a five percent fatality rate. Fatal fat embolism is the most serious risk. Fat embolism occurs when too much fat is injected into the gluteal muscles causing the fat to then accidentally enter the bloodstream, blocking the blood flow. An embolism can lead to death or blockage of the blood flow.
A plastic surgeon can also perform a butt lift. A surgical buttlift removes excess skin from the buttocks. The incision is usually placed below the waistline so that it is not noticeable in low-rise or bikini bottoms. The buttocks are shaped by liposuction to your preference and the butt is physically lifted upward with all the loose and excess skin having been removed.
While butt implants aren’t as common anymore, people may also get silicone butt implants, which are surgically placed beneath the gluteus muscles to create a larger appearing backside.
Other surgical body contouring options include air sculpt. The surgical procedure of air sculpt removes individual fat cells from specific areas. After the fat cells are removed, they are carefully inserted in targeted areas of your buttocks, one cell at time.
Patients are more likely to choose a non-surgical approach to increasing the size of their butts
Which Shapes Do People Want For Their Buttocks?
Three shapes are most common for buttlifts. These are the curvy heart, upside-down heart, and rounded bubble. To determine the best shape for you, discuss your choices with your physician.
An upside-down heart shape will work better if you have a more square shape with no hips. An upside-down heart shape can add definition to your hips, and curve your buttocks.
A rounded bubble shaped buttlift will help you define your V-shaped body. A curvy approach works best for V-shaped bodies. Curvy hips will give you the perfect definition.
What Other Ways Can You Augment the Shape of Your Buttocks?
You can use a variety of exercises to enhance your butt and enhance your curves. These exercises will increase the strength of your glutes and give you a rounder, firmer, and more defined buttock.
Lunges and squats are the best exercises for improving the shape of your buttocks. To be effective, squats should fully engage your gluteal muscles. Therefore, squats should be deep. Properly performing a squat requires that your thighs are parallel to the ground. You probably are not doing squats right if it seems easy.
Romanian deadlifts are a great exercise for improving the shape of your buttocks as they target all the muscles in your posterior chain. You can also add weight with dumbbells, in addition to lunges. Coolsculpting can also be used to improve the shape of your buttocks. Coolsculpting can be used to reduce fat in the abdomen, buttocks, banana rolls, flanks and bra area to help create that hourglass look.
Who is A Good Candidate For Sculptra?
If you want to improve the shape, size, and proportion of your buttocks, then you might be a good candidate for a Sculptra Butt Lift. The Sculptra procedure is a great option if you want to achieve sculpted curves and a perfect hourglass shape with minimal downtime and no surgery. Sculptra is also a great option for those who don’t have enough fat to undergo fat transfer injections or aren’t willing to go under the knife.
What is the Recovery Time for a Sculptra Butt Lift?
There is virtually no downtime with Sculptra butt lifts as they are non-surgical. We recommend that patients avoid blood thinners for a week after their injections to minimize any bruising. We recommend that patients refrain from strenuous exercise the day after their procedure. With Sculptra, you can expect some bruising, soreness, and possible swelling, which subsides within days after the procedure. There is a five day massage after care routine that you should perform after your treatment, which consists of five mine massages to the treatment area, five times a day, for five days.
How long do Sculptra Butt Lift Results Last?
The results that you will be getting from injections for the Sculptra Butt Lift can last up to two or three years.
