How is Sculptra® Used for a Butt Lift?

Whether you were born without a curvy butt or lost yours due to hormones, pregnancy, or weight changes, you may be looking for a way to achieve the butt of your dreams. A Sculptra® butt lift can provide a more lifted, fuller appearance with minimal risk or downtime. This injectable treatment helps you achieve the butt you want over time. 

What is Sculptra®?

Sculptra® is a dermal filler made of poly-L-lactic acid. While many know about Sculptra® as an excellent treatment for deep facial lines and wrinkles, it is also the only dermal filler used to augment the butt. Sculptra® has particular characteristics that make it ideal for this purpose. Unlike most other dermal fillers, Sculptra® triggers collagen production to increase volume and firmness over time.

How is Sculptra® Used for a Butt Lift?

When injected into the buttocks, Sculptra® triggers cells to produce more collagen. This new collagen boosts the volume of your butt while lifting and firming it. Since your own collagen creates lift and volume, your results look natural and proportionate. Most people need several treatments to trigger enough collagen for their desired results. 

 A Sculptra® butt lift cannot produce the same results as a Brazilian butt lift, a procedure that uses fat to augment the buttocks. However, a Brazilian butt lift requires incisions, fat transfer, and significant recovery time, while a Sculptra® butt lift requires none. Your Manhattan Aesthetics team will work with you to ensure you have reasonable expectations.

Is There Any Downtime After a Sculptra® Butt Lift?

Your Sculptra® injections can take as little as 15 minutes. You can resume your usual activities immediately with no downtime. The treated area may feel slightly sore, and you may notice some redness or spots of bruising that fade within a few days. Unlike a Brazilian butt lift, which requires weeks of awkward and uncomfortable sitting positions, a Sculptra® butt lift lets you do everything you usually do.

How Soon Will I See Results After a Sculptra® Butt Lift?

Some people may only need one Sculptra® treatment to see their desired results. Many others benefit from up to four sessions. Results appear three or four months after your first treatment and can continue to develop for several more months. 

Sculptra® is among the longest-lasting dermal fillers, and it lasts even longer in the buttocks than the face. Sculptra® butt augmentation results can last two to three years before needing a touch-up. Maintenance treatments every few years can keep your butt firm and lifted. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Sculptra® Butt Augmentation?

Sculptra® is a safe, effective way to trigger new collagen development. Ideal candidates for a Sculptra® butt lift have reasonable expectations about their results. People with significant buttock sagging or drooping may not see the results they want with a Sculptra® butt lift.
