What Is a Sculptra Butt Lift?

A Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure to enhance the contours and shape of the buttocks. Sculptra is a minimally invasive injectable dermal filler that stimulates collagen production within the deeper layers of the skin.

Sculptra is not a traditional dermal filler that adds volume. It is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible substance that encourages the body to produce collagen. When injected into the buttocks, Sculptra helps stimulate collagen production to add volume, creating a more lifted and rounded backside that fits your natural anatomy with minimal downtime.

How Does a Sculptra Butt Lift Work?

Sculptra works differently than traditional hyaluronic acid fillers. While hyaluronic acid fillers add volume immediately, Sculptra’s poly-L-lactic acid formula works to encourage the body to produce more collagen, improving the skin’s overall appearance, structure, and volume.

As it takes several weeks to months to build collagen, patients typically need multiple Sculptra injections to achieve an increase in buttock volume and a visible improvement in shape.

The Differences Between Sculptra Butt Lift and Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a body sculpting procedure that aims to enhance the contours of the buttocks in a two-phase procedure consisting of liposuction and fat grafting. Liposuction is performed in areas that will help complement the appearance of the buttocks, such as the waist, hips, or thighs. Then, the extracted fat is purified and strategically injected into the buttocks to create additional fullness and shape. While a BBL can deliver permanent results, it comes with a lengthy recovery that may not appeal to all patients. One critical component of BBL recovery is avoiding pressure on the fat grafts on the buttocks for at least two weeks, which means no sitting or lying on your butt for any amount of time.

For patients who do not have sufficient fat to undergo a fat transfer and are unable to have butt implants, a Sculptra butt lift provides a safe and effective non-surgical option. As Sculptra injections are minimally invasive, they have far fewer risks and minimal downtime. Most Sculptra butt lift patients can resume normal activities within 24 hours, including sitting.

Sculptra butt lifts provide natural-looking results without the inconvenience and downtime associated with other butt lift procedures. Depending on the volume necessary to achieve your desired results, a Sculptra butt lift may be more affordable than a traditional BBL.

Some disadvantages of Sculptra butt lifts are less dramatic results that are temporary—Sculptra results last up to two years. A BBL will provide immediate and dramatic changes to your overall figure. Sculptra butt lift develops over time as collagen production takes time, creating natural-looking results that typically take four to six months.

When determining which butt lift procedure is right for you, it’s important to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn about your options. Factors that you should consider include cost, recovery time, and your desired results.

What Can I Expect During a Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure?

Our expert providers customize all Sculptra butt lift procedures to achieve optimal outcomes for each patient. While each procedure is unique, here are general steps to expect.

Before Your Consultation

Preparing for Your Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure

It’s essential to be in good overall health before any plastic surgery procedure. Each Sculptra treatment will be tailored to your needs; however, here’s general information to help you prepare.

  • Not all injectors are equal. It’s important to be selective when choosing your Sculptra injector to avoid complications and achieve optimal results.
  • Discuss your health history, including any medications you currently take, with your injector before Sculptra injections.
  • Smoking can hamper the body’s healing processes. Quitting smoking can help maintain your Sculptra butt lift results.
  • Avoid taking blood-thinning medications, supplements, or vitamins that increase bleeding or bruising risks for a week.
  • Remain well-hydrated and avoid alcohol or caffeine for up to 48 hours to avoid additional bleeding and bruising.
  • Come to your Sculptra butt lift appointment with clean, moisturized skin.

Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure

Customized Care

Before starting your Sculptra butt lift, you may be treated with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. It’s important to discuss any pain concerns before beginning your Sculptra butt lift.

During your treatment, you will lie comfortably on your stomach, and Sculptra will be strategically administered to the targeted areas. You may feel pressure or a stinging sensation; however, discomfort is typically minimal. Depending on the number of vials required to achieve your aesthetic goals, Sculptra butt lift procedures typically last 30 to 60 minutes.

Sculptra Butt Lift Aftercare

Customized Care

As Sculptra butt lifts require minimal downtime, patients can resume most normal activities immediately after treatment. It is common for patients to experience mild side effects like swelling, bruising, and redness. These effects typically resolve within a few days.

Following a Sculptra butt lift, it’s important to massage the area five times a day for five minutes at a time for the first five days. This ensures that the Sculptra is evenly distributed throughout the treatment area.

A cold pack may be applied to the affected area for a few minutes to alleviate discomfort. To ensure optimal results, it’s important to follow all post-procedural instructions provided by your injector, including avoiding:

  • Sun exposure, including tanning beds
  • Drinking alcohol for 24 to 48 hours
  • Taking blood-thinning medications, including ibuprofen, for at least 24 to 48 hours
  • Strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours

The results from a Sculptra butt lift will appear gradually with full results visible within a few months. Patients may require multiple Sculptra sessions to achieve their aesthetic goals. Typically, Sculptra butt lift results can last up to two years.

How Soon Will I See My Michigan Sculptra Butt Lift Results?

Following a Sculptra butt lift, you won’t see your results right away. Sculptra works to stimulate collagen production, so it can take four to six months after your final session for gradual, natural-looking results to fully appear.

The results of a Sculptra butt lift aren’t permanent, but they may last up to two years. To maintain your results, our expert injectors may recommend annual touch-up appointments and sustaining your current weight through healthy lifestyle choices.

How Much Will My Sculptra Butt Lift Cost?

Sculptra butt lift costs will vary by patient, depending on the number of units required to achieve your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, our expert injectors will estimate your Ann Arbor Sculptra butt lift cost.
