Unlike a Brazilian butt lift performed with liposuction and fat transfer, a Sculptra butt lift is non-invasive and requires little pain or downtime. It is perfect for patients who lack the necessary body fat to make a Brazilian butt lift viable. 

Dr. Raffi Hovsepian’s skill and artistry combine to produce a final outcome that is elegant, personalized, and symmetrical. Call today to schedule an appointment with the doctor and discover how Sculptra can help achieve your unique body sculpting goals.

What is a Sculptra butt lift?

A Sculptra butt lift is often called a “liquid” butt augmentation because it uses only a filler instead of surgery or liposuction. Sculptra is made with poly-L-lactic acid, a compound that naturally enhances the body’s production of collagen, the protein responsible for plump, hydrated contours in youthful skin. In addition to volumizing the rear end, Sculptra can also help minimize cellulite and improve the skin’s tone and texture.

How is a Sculptra Butt Lift Different From a Brazilian butt Lift?

During a Brazilian butt lift, the surgeon will use liposuction to extract fat cells from a donor area of the body such as the belly or thighs, purify them, and then inject them into the rear end. With Sculptra, there is no need for liposuction, so the recovery time is significantly less. Sculptra results are not permanent, however, but they can last several years at a time.

Benefits of a Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift

  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Topical anesthetic only
  • No need for liposuction
  • Natural-looking outcome
  • Improves the shape and size of the rear end
  • No downtime or discomfort
  • Effective where diet and exercise have failed to achieve results
  • Perfect for those who lack sufficient body fat

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

Good candidates are healthy, non-smoking individuals who desire an enhancement in their figure without the use of surgery or fat transfer. They have realistic, positive attitudes regarding their outcomes, based on a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Raffi in Beverly Hills.

Patients should understand that a Sculptra butt lift doesn’t provide an instant lift as an implant might but rather gradually restores a rounded, youthful shape through the replenishment of natural collagen reserves. 

A Sculptra butt lift may be ideal for the following concerns:

  • A genetically flat behind
  • Dimples on the buttocks
  • Volume loss in the rear end after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging

What Happens During My Session?

The treatment takes around one hour to complete. The first 30 minutes is reserved for numbing the rear end, and the second 30 minutes is when the injections are administered. Afterward, a gentle massage is performed to help ensure uniform results.

What Can I Expect After My Sculptra Butt Lift?

Because a Sculptra butt lift does not involve surgery or liposuction, it is considered non-invasive and comes with little to no downtime. Patients can resume their normal activities right away, returning to work, school, or leisure. After your injections, you are encouraged to gently massage the treatment area for 5 minutes up to 5 times a day to ensure the product spreads uniformly and adequately. Other than temporary soreness and redness at the injection sites, there are few side effects to contend with. We will follow up with you to ensure you are happy with your results.

Non-Surgical BBL FAQ

How long does a Sculptra butt lift take?

You will receive a topical numbing agent 30 minutes before your session. Sculptra injections themselves take fewer than 20 minutes to administer. Patients can return to their normal activities after their treatment, provided they follow the doctor’s instructions carefully.

How soon will I see my results?

Directly after a Sculptra butt lift, you will see some improvement in your contours. Over the next few days, the Sculptra ingredients will begin to take effect, enhancing the size and shape of your buttocks and continuing to optimize your appearance over the course of the next few months. You may need up to 4 additional sessions spaced about 3 weeks apart to see a comprehensive transformation. Your outcome will last from 2-3 years as augmented collagen production is maintained.

Are there any side effects with Sculptra?

Patients may experience minor redness, swelling, itchiness, and burning at the treatment sites. These symptoms tend to be short-lived, however, lasting a few days at most.

Is a Sculptra butt lift painful?

Most patients do not experience discomfort during their treatment. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin prior to Sculptra injections, so the treatment area is completely numb. After your session, you can use over-the-counter painkillers if needed.

How much does a Sculptra butt lift cost?

Butt augmentation with Sculptra is typically less expensive than a Brazilian butt lift with fat transfer, but pricing will vary according to the total number of injections the patient requires to achieve their unique cosmetic goals.
