If you’ve dreamed of a rounder, fuller, and lifted derriere without plastic surgery, butt injections for non-surgical buttock enhancement and lift are finally the real deal! For years, the aesthetics industry has warned that there was “no such thing” as butt injections using anything but fat transfers following liposuction surgery. Now, with the help of a unique injectable dermal enhancer called Sculptra Aesthetic, buttock enhancement is now available at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills, CA.
Collagen breakdown is responsible for much of the sagging we see in the face and body, and while injecting collagen doesn’t work very well, injecting a dermal enhancer designed to trigger your body’s own collagen production is very effective. Enter, Sculptra!
Sculptra Aesthetic is used primarily in the face to help restore youthful volume, particularly in the mid-face cheek area. We perform a series of injectable treatments designed to trigger gradual collagen regrowth for natural-looking, long-term results. Now, that exact same injectable is being used to rebuild collagen in the buttocks, providing patients with a lifted, fuller backside.
Unlike other injectable fillers, which are comprised of hyaluronic acid, Sculptra injections are comprised of poly-L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) binds to and stimulates collagen-producing cells, triggering collagen growth.
The collagen structure is like scaffolding for the skin, holding it up and creating a volumizing appearance. In the case of a Sculptra butt lift, that helps lift the buttocks upward, creating a perkier backside with a fuller, rounder appearance.
Plastic surgery carries risks and downtime that you don’t find with injectables. There are no incisions with Sculptra butt injections and the procedure is very comfortable. Like other non-surgical body contouring procedures, there is little-to-no downtime associated with butt injections. Discomfort associated with butt injections is minimal, much like the day after a hard workout, and you can actually sit following each treatment. This is in large contrast to buttock implants and surgical Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL) where you’re advised to avoid sitting for 6-8 weeks after surgery!
When choosing a provider for butt injections in the Los Angeles area, it’s important to see a reputable aesthetic injector with experience using Sculptra Aesthetic. Only medically licensed providers like physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants are legally permitted to administer injectables like Sculptra. Such procedures do not occur in day spas or beauty salons, so do your homework and make sure your providers and their practice are reputable and fully licensed.
Butt injections that administer other substances, such as silicone injections, are illegal, unsafe, and can often put your health and life at risk. Patients who have received silicone butt injections from fraudulent providers have experienced deformities, long-term health problems, and even hospitalization and death. Silicone used in these illegal procedures is not medical-grade and often purchased at hardware stores. The silicone, syringes and environment are not sterile, and the person administering the injections is not a licensed medical provider. Protect yourself by doing plenty of research beforehand on the types of procedures available and the best providers to administer them.
Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center is on the cutting-edge of body contouring and injectable procedures in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles areas. Our comprehensive consultations and custom treatment plans often involve multifaceted approaches to help patients achieve the best results. Finally, our practice was co-founded by board-certified plastic surgeon and body contouring expert Dr. Leslie Stevens.
During your comprehensive consultation, your provider will discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals. She will examine the treatment area and discuss different options for your comprehensive treatment plan, including Sculptra butt injections. Other non-surgical treatments may also be recommended at this time to help enhance your results. You will also provide our team with a full medical history, including your current list of medications and supplements. This will help us determine if you can safely receive Sculptra butt injections.
Once we have decided on a treatment plan, we will schedule your first appointment and provide you with instructions to prepare for your initial procedure.
During your Sculptra butt lift procedure, your provider will evaluate the treatment area again and mark the injection sites. You will then lie face down on a comfortable surface while your provider administers Sculptra injections into each of the buttocks. The procedure is very tolerable, and our goal is to make you feel comfortable throughout the duration of your treatment.
Aftercare instructions will be provided to you following your procedure. We will also schedule you for a follow-up appointment and repeated treatments; these appointments are important to ensure that you’re responding well to the butt lift procedure and get the full cosmetic benefit of Sculptra butt injections in our practice.
In addition to butt injections using Sculptra Aesthetic, we may also recommend other non-surgical cosmetic treatments to improve your results. This may include non-surgical fat reduction above and below the buttocks, radiofrequency skin tightening, and cellulite reduction treatments.
CoolSculpting freezes away unwanted fat virtually anywhere on the body, including the upper thighs, banana roll (beneath the buttocks), and even the back and flanks. By freezing away that unwanted fat, the buttocks appear perkier and noticeable.
If you’re considering CoolSculpting in combination with Sculptra, it is recommended that you complete your CoolSculpting treatment series prior to receiving Sculptra injections. This will ensure we do not over-accentuate your derriere after surrounding excess fat has been removed and contoured.
Radiofrequency and ultrasound tightening treatments help lift and tighten loose, sagging skin. At Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center, we often use Exilis Ultra on and around the buttocks to comfortably and visibly tighten and improve the appearance of the skin. Exilis can also provide some subtle fat reduction in these areas.
If you’re considering a skin tightening treatment in combination with Sculptra butt injections, it’s best to complete your series of skin tightening treatments prior to your first Sculptra procedure. This is because the skin tightening technology may interfere with and even break down the filler.
While Sculptra butt injections can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, for some patients, a series of cellulite treatments prior to injections may be recommended. At Lasky Aesthetics in Los Angeles, we use Cellutone, a non-surgical treatment that breaks up cellulite beneath the skin, revealing a smoother appearance. This treatment can also be used following your CoolSculpting treatments to speed up the breakdown of frozen fat cells, providing you with faster fat elimination.
Questions about the Sculptra butt lift should be discussed with a provider during a consultation, as they can answer questions based on your individual needs. However, these frequently asked questions can help you find out if Sculptra butt injections are right for you.
You will very likely require far more Sculptra in the buttocks than you would during a facial rejuvenation treatment; however, that exact amount varies from person to person. The minimum amount of Sculptra per treatment is about eight vials (four in each buttock) per treatment with a minimum of two treatments. Some patients require up to 40 total Sculptra vials to see full results.
Two to three sessions (one session per month) is required before full treatment is complete. This allows the poly-L-lactic acid to trigger as much collagen regrowth as possible. Immediate plumping is often noticeable following Sculptra butt injections; however, this subsides and results are noticeable after approximately three to four months. However, collagen will continue to grow up to 12 months later, improving your results over time.
Before and Immediately After First Treatment Using Sculptra Aesthetic for Buttocks
Following a full course of treatment, results usually last between two and three years. Some patients see their results last up to five to seven years. Most patients, however, benefit from touch-up injection appointments every two years.
There are many reasons why Sculptra butt injections may not be a good fit for you. If your provider determines that your needs require a surgical approach, she will tell you why your goals won’t be met with a Sculptra butt lift. Other patients cannot safely receive Sculptra due to medical or pharmaceutical contraindications for treatment, which will be determined during your consultation. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive Sculptra. If you have an active infection in the treatment area, you should wait until it clears up before having any treatments.
Fat transfers require surgical removal of fat from other areas of the body via liposuction, so if your goal is to avoid surgery altogether, you should consider Sculptra as an alternative. Also, if you do not have enough fat in other areas that can be removed via liposuction, fat transfers are not an option. Fat transfers are also considered less predictable by many experts, as diet and exercise can cause the fat cells to shrink.
The goal with all of our cosmetic treatments is to provide you with natural-looking results. Our Sculptra buttock enhancement is no different. Not only will your buttock enhancement and lifting look more natural than buttock implants, the gradual enhancement and lifting over time makes the change appear like a natural progression. People will notice that you have a lovely derriere, but they won’t suspect it’s because you had work done.
