A non-surgical Butt Lift using a dermal filler such as Sculptra is a safe FDA approved injection that acts as a powerful collagen stimulator. Sculptra stimulates your own collagen allowing the area injected to volumize over time. Studies show that an increase in collagen can smooth and plump the depleted areas of the buttock. A butt lift using Sculptra® will give the patient a more plump and round looking butt, plus it will boost an otherwise saggy booty.
Sculptra® comes in a powder that is hydrated by your injector a day or two before the procedure. The day of your procedure the injector will inject the Sculptra mixture that includes lidocaine (helps numb the area) and sterile water. The patient will instantly notice a fuller buttock after the treatment, however, that fullness will subside as the body will naturally absorb the extra fluid within 48 hours. Don’t worry! The Sculptra particles are left in the treatment area and the magic of the procedure will take place gradually over the next few months as the Sculptra causes the body to produce collagen.
If you and your provider choose to use fat injections. Center for Aesthetic Medicine uses Renuva for autologous fat transfer. Renuva is a adipose allograft that is processed to preserve the extracellular matrix containing collagens, proteins, and growth factors found in adipose tissue. The resulting matrix serves as a framework to support the cellular repopulation and vascularization at the site of injection. Renuva is to be used where fat naturally exists and it great for smoothing cellulite dimples, and adding volume.
The cost of a butt lift depends on the amount of Sculptra or Renuvo® needed to achieve the desired result. Most patients spend a few thousand dollars and are very happy with the results!
Typically the non-surgical Butt Lift procedure lasts 18 months to 2 years.
Results with Sculptra® will be gradual, with optimal results visible several months after the final treatment session.
Sculptra® Butt Lift Recovery
There is little to no downtime needed after a Sculptra® butt lift, and patients typically resume regular activities the same day as their procedure. Patients may experience tenderness or mild bruising. Patients will be instructed to massage the injected area to encourage optimal results.
The Renuva treatment requires no downtime, and is performed right in the doctor’s office. Renuva eliminates the need for small volume fat transfer and does not require general anesthesia.
Downtime for both of these procedures is minimal, and patients can resume normal activity within a day or two.
