Bye Bye Flat Butts With a Non-Surgical Sculptra Butt Lift
Are you looking to enhance the size and shape of your buttocks without undergoing invasive procedures or surgery? AMAE Plastic Surgery is one of the first medical spas in Birmingham, MI to offer Sculptra as a buttocks enhancement filler.
The “Sculptra Butt Lift” is a relatively new aesthetic procedure that provides a non-surgical alternative to a Brazilian Butt Lift. Though not as big or dramatic as a BBL, a Sculptra Butt Lift is faster, cheaper and safer than invasive surgery – and has no long recovery period or downtime.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra is an injectable filler that can also be used to add natural volume to areas of the face and body, as well as reduce the appearance of cellulite. Sculptra is injected into the deeper layers of fat to help smooth out surface irregularities and create a smoother, uniform appearance.
However, unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra is made of Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) which is a collagen stimulator. In addition to providing instant volume, it actually works deep within the dermis (lower layer of skin) to help stimulate new collagen production, which restores your skin’s inner support system over time.
While other dermal fillers are absorbed over the course of three to 24 months, Sculptra injections last much longer, because it stimulates the body to produce new collagen in the treated areas.
Who is a Candidate for a Sculptra Butt Lift?
Dr. Ali at AMAE Plastic Surgery is one of the first and only plastic surgeons in Birmingham, MI to offer Sculptra as a buttock enhancement filler. The Sculptra Butt Lift is perfect for those who want to make more subtle changes, or who do not want to undergo the cost, downtime and discomfort of invasive surgery. With the Sculptra Butt Lift, you’ll see results immediately that continue to improve over time – with very little pain and no downtime.
Many patients consider a Sculptra Butt Lift if they’re noticing that their buttocks are sagging and aren’t as firm as they once were. Some women are born with “flat butts” – while many other women lose “butt volume” with age because the body produces les and less collagen every year as a woman gets older. Just like the skin and fat on the face thins and sags, so does the tissue in the buttocks. That why, no matter how many squats you do, a flat butt simply may not go away on its own.
Another use of a Sculptra Butt Lift is to treat “hip dips” – which are indents or depressions on the outside part of the upper legs just below the hip bone. Hip dips are common in women who have less body fat, or who have skin in this area that is more tightly connected to the greater trochanter of the femur. If you don’t have enough fat from other regions of your body to do a Brazilian Butt Lift, Sculptra may also be perfect for you!
The injection of Sculptra, can make anyone’s hips look fuller, rounder, more symmetrical and more defined – naturally highlighting the natural contours of your body. And because it is a non-surgical treatment it is safe and effective for most adult patients of virtually any age.
How Much Sculptra Do I Need for a Butt Lift?
Every patient’s body is different. When administering Sculptra to lift and shape the buttocks, the amount needed will depends on several factors. The current shape, fullness and contour of the buttocks, as well as the laxity of the buttocks tissue and skin must be taken into consideration. It will also depend on how round or prominent the patient wants to make their “new” buttocks.
Does Sculptra Help with the Appearance of Cellulite?
In addition to enlarging, lifting and shaping the buttocks, Sculptra, can help to fill in the dimples and divots of cellulite to make your skin smoother. Sculptra also works to promote collagen formation, which boosts skin volume and structure, filling and smoothing out imperfections over time.
What to Expect With Sculptra Butt Lift Injections
Dr. Ali will begin by assessing your skin and tissue, listening to your appearance goals, and asking about any medical concerns. Then he will map out the treatment area to inject Sculptra in specific points. Typically, the treatment area will be numbed beforehand with a topical anesthetic. Sculptra is also mixed with lidocaine to limit any discomfort at the injection sites.
During the procedure, Dr. Ali will ask you to stand up or lay down on your stomach to ensure the volume is injected into the treatment area correctly. Once all the product has been injected, a combination of manual and/or radiofrequency (RF) massage may be used to ensure the Sculptra spreads evenly through your buttocks? We will provide aftercare instructions as well as exercise guidelines after your butt lift to improve the appearance and elasticity of your skin.
To achieve maximum volume and optimal results, Sculptra Butt Lift patients will typically need three to four sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The time of the treatment and the duration may vary between patients but wee have found that most sessions are completed within 30-60 minutes per session.
And the beautiful results of a Sculptra Butt Lift last up to five years!
