The newer designer skinny jeans, thong type bikinis, and lingerie have drawn tremendous attention and awareness to the buttocks. The designer jeans emphasize a tight fit and accentuate the hips and buttocks. The ideal shape of the hips and buttocks for these styles is that of a pear shape. This desired hourglass shape is that of a small curvy waistline and a full and rounded firm buttock. This is a sign of youth. The Sculptra Butt Lift achieves this by the completely non-surgical injection of Sculptra. The procedure does not increase the size or fullness of the buttock as much as a BBL. Sculptra is a revolutionary procedure for those who want a fuller and shapelier buttock but do not have enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift. A Sculptra Butt Lift gives you the confidence in yourself and to wear these new styles.

Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure
For the procedure, the buttock areas that lack fullness and size are initially marked. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to minimize any pain. The injection of Sculptra is done with the patient awake. Several vials of Sculptra are injected throughout the treatment areas. The amount of injections that are needed depends upon the individual.
Sculptra is an injectable product that stimulates collagen growth in the skin. Sculptra was originally used to improve the loss of soft tissue fullness in the face. Sculptra stimulates increased collagen with gradual thickening the skin over time. This process often requires several months for the increased collagen to gradually fill the buttock. The amount of Sculptra injections that is needed depends upon the individual's buttock size and shape and the patient’s goals. Sculptra Butt Lift usually requires more than one treatment. These treatments are usually done three to four months apart.
Recovery from Sculptra Butt Lift
There may be some tenderness and bruising of the injected areas. This resolves over the next week or so. The main advantage of this procedure is that it is a completely non- surgical procedure and there is no downtime. A patient can resume normal activities the next day.
Planning Your Procedure
The procedure is performed at the Plastic Surgery Center. This is performed in a nationally accredited (AAAASF) surgical facility. This ensures that the surgery is done in complete privacy and that it is done with the highest quality of patient safety standards for ambulatory surgery.
