A full, rounded booty is all the rage.  Specific glute-building exercises can help round out your butt, but even years of dedicated exercise might not be enough to achieve your goal.  This is because the gluteus muscles (the ones in your buttocks) are difficult to tone, especially as we age.  

As you age, the body decreases its ability to produce collagen and synthesize protein, making it more difficult to build and retain muscle mass.  If a curved, contoured booty is your goal, but you aren’t willing to go under the knife to achieve it, look no further than the Sculptra Butt Lift.  Sculptra is essentially a filler for your butt!

Keep reading for everything you need to know about the Sculptra Butt Lift, the non-surgical approach to enhancing your curves.

What is a Sculptra Butt Lift?  How does it work?

Sculptra is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to other butt augmentation procedures, such as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).  Sculptra uses dermal fillers to restore volume and add shape to areas that naturally lose volume over time.  

The fillers used in a Sculptra procedure are designed specifically for the buttocks area, containing a synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). This advanced filler stimulates the body’s collagen production, the protein responsible for our skin’s fullness and elasticity.

For those interested in comprehensive body sculpting, combining Vancouver Sculptra butt lift with Fat Freezing & CoolSculpting treatments can provide a holistic approach to achieving desired body contours by targeting different areas and aspects of body shaping.

A Sculptra treatment injects the PLLA fillers deep under the skin.  The result is a rounder, fuller, more contoured backside.  

How many treatments will I need?  

This varies by individual.  Depending on your aesthetic goals, most patients require 1-3 treatments spaced several weeks apart.  Each treatment typically takes about 30 minutes. 

Even though this is a non-invasive procedure, be sure to ask your doctor about how many sessions you require to get the butt you desire.

How much downtime do I need after a Sculptra treatment?

None! This is a non-invasive procedure, and you can return to your regular activities right away, unlike traditional butt lifts or implants. However, refrain from strenuous exercise for at least 24-48 hours post-procedure. Talk to your doctor about aftercare instructions.

If you’re looking to further enhance your results, consider exploring additional options such as the treatment of lipo dissolve  or VelaShape, which can complement your procedure by targeting other areas of concern and refining your overall body contour.

When will I see results?  Are results permanent?

Results from a Sculptra Butt Lift include a naturally-looking rounded, fuller shape in the buttocks area, enhanced curves, smoother skin texture, and decreased cellulite in the treated area. Since Sculptra fillers stimulate collagen production, the results are progressive and improve over time. You will begin to see results about 3-4 weeks after your treatment, with full results within 3-6 months. Results last about two years.

You can improve the longevity of your treatment by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, complete with proper nutrition and exercise. Many patients book maintenance treatments every two years. For those looking into maintaining body contouring results, understanding the differences between CoolSculpting vs. EmSculpt can help in selecting additional treatments that suit individual needs and goals.

Am I a good candidate for a Sculptra Butt Lift?

Unlike a traditional butt lift, you are more likely to be a candidate and can avoid the surgical procedure that comes with butt implants. A Sculptra Butt Lift is best suited for individuals who:

  • Are in general good health
  • Are between the ages of 25-45
  • Desire a subtle enhancement to the buttocks area without going under the knife

Does Sculptra contain animal products?

No!  Sculptra does not contain animal products, human products, or preservatives.  Sculptra particles remain at the injection site and cause no tissue damage. When you undergo a Sculptra buttock procedure, the risk is much lower than a lift that requires longer preparation and recovery times.
