How we feel about our buttock is important to many people. Not only does it contribute to our overall happiness with our body, but it also contributes to how easy or difficult it is to find the right pair of pants or wear a dress, or even feel comfortable naked. The doctors at The Dermatology Institute of Southern California understand this and they are here to help.
There are instances where you may feel like you are doing all you can on your own and you need a final hand to achieve your desired results. Although you want a round, high buttock, diet and exercise are not changing the shape of your buttock no matter how much effort you put into working those muscles. In this type of situation, it is possible to turn to a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to augment and define the buttock: Sculptra Butt Lifts.
What is a Sculptra Butt Lift?
Sculptra is an injectable that works by stimulating the body’s own ability to create collagen, which increases the volume and thickness of the skin. This creates the desired plumpness and curvature of the ideal back side. It is a treatment that takes a few sessions and some time to see the improvements, but given that there is no down time, no surgery and no pain this is a great course of action. Unlike fat transfer which requires surgery to remove fat and then place it into a different part of the body like the buttocks, Sculptra injections require no liposuction of a donor site and require no general nesthesia to perform.
Injections are done in the specific targeted areas that were determined during the consultation. The whole process lasts about an hour. This treatment should be repeated a few times (usually about six weeks apart) until desired results are achieved.
One of the greatest benefits of Sculptra is that there is no down time! No need to sit around and recover from a treatment and no general anesthesia needed. With Sculptra there can be some some discomfort and bruising, but you can certainly continue with your daily life. Our doctors will discuss with you what activities to avoid in the short term and help you manage any discomfort.
A lift will be visible within the first or second treatment, however, overtime you will be able to see continued volume enhancement and definition. Although it is a gradual treatment, Sculptra provides fantastic results! You will be delighted with the quick procedure, no downtime, no incision/scarring, and long lasting results.
Is it safe?
Because it mimics the body’s own process, Sculptra is very safe. The only noted risk is the possible appearance of lumps under the skin as sometimes the product may not fully dissolve. This is something that would have to be removed should it occur, but is not common. There is some bruising immediately after the injection that lasts about a week, but this is normal and usually resolves on its own.
Who is Sculptra for?
This is a procedure for people who are in good shape and close to their ideal body weight but who have still not been able to shape their buttocks as desired. Those who are interested in a non-surgical option and have no interest in long recovery times will be delighted by this option. It gives people shape and volume in a simple and quick procedure. Due to the fact that it is non-invasive, it is a procedure that progresses in time, so it is best for people who are patient and understand the evolutionary nature of this treatment.
