How Many Vials of Sculptra Are Needed For Buttocks

What is Sculptra and how can it be used for a Sculptra Butt Lift?

Many patients in New York want a butt lift but have no idea how easy it is to have it done.  In the past, plastic surgery was the only option for a butt lift. With the advent of Botox and Juvederm, Sculptra injections have been increasing in popularity as a natural alternative to traditional dermal fillers.  Sculptra is a revolutionary way to have a butt lift without the need for undergoing invasive plastic surgery.  Sculptra is composed of poly-l-lactic acid. Poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) has been around  for years in fact it is the same material used in dissolvable sutures which are widely used by dermatologist and plastic surgeons. PLLA is a biodegradable micro particle and also synthetic polymer of the AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) family.  Sculptra can be used to improve not only facial lines and wrinkles, but to also add volume and definition to the buttocks. Loss of volume is part of the natural aging process, and occurs not only in the face, but in the buttocks as well.

Many patients complain that their buttock area becomes hollow and flat.  Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA approved injectable dermal filler with a unique gel formulation which promotes natural collagen production in your body. This means that even after you stop getting Sculptra injections, new collagen will be formed for weeks and your buttocks will continue to get fuller.  The skin laxity is treated at the same time by adding this needed volume. If you are looking to enhance your derriere, Sculptra injections for a butt augmentation is an alternative treatment to rejuvenate your buttock, giving you a shapely silhouette with minimal downtime or side effects.

With summer on the horizon, Sculptra butt injections is the perfect procedure for body rejuvenation and a rounder buttock. Sculptra butt injections is the ideal butt lift procedure for anyone looking to enhance, contour and shape the buttocks due to proportional imbalance.  Sculptra injections is a safe cosmetic option to achieve a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) without surgery. The procedure involves multiple injections of several vials of sculptra into the buttocks. Specifically, It is recommended that you do series of four treatments, four to six weeks apart, to achieve the ideal results. Sculptra injections are a an excellent alternative to a surgical buttock implant or fat transfer.  Scupltra injections simply stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production, working over time to enhance the shape of the buttocks.

What is the Sculptra Butt Lift?

With buttock augmentation increasing in popularity since the Kardashians, the amount of butt lifts performed in NYC has grown each year. Sculptra Butt Lift is a revolutionary non-surgical alternative to a traditional surgical butt lift or a Brazilian butt lift. The treatment involves the use of Sculptra injections (poly-l-lactic acid) injected deep into the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin of the buttock. The Sculptra stimulates collagen growth beneath the skin, resulting in tighter, and more curvaceous buttocks. Sculptra butt injections are ideal for anyone with little or no fat in the buttocks who wants a non-surgical enhancement of their derriere. Sculptra ultimately restores the youthful contours of the butt by increasing both volume and skin thickness. By strategically injecting in targeted areas, Sculptra builds up the collagen in those areas sculpting the buttocks and; correcting hollows, improving stretch marks, minimizing cellulite, and enhancing your curves.

What are the benefits of this procedure?

Sculptra butt lift injections offer natural, subtle results with minimal risk or complications, and no downtime.  Its unique quality of stimulating the body’s own collagen can provide an improved lift, appearance and plumpness. The effects of Sculptra will build up over the course of each treatment, providing a natural and imperceptible improvement in the treated area. In as little as three treatment sessions  you can create more volume, and lift to your buttocks.

How many Vials of Sculptra are needed for a butt lift?

The number of vials is dependent upon the patients desired results and the round-ness of their buttocks to begin with. The average number of vials utilized is 10 per treatment, 5 vials per buttock. For discreet smaller, areas which require less volume, fewer vials may be needed.  For more dramatic results, which also depends on your proportions and desired results, as many as 20 vials can be used utilizing 10 vials per side. The results of Sculptra butt injections are not immediate as it takes a few weeks to produce collagen and see noticeable volume to the treated area.  The treatment session needs to be repeated four times to achieve the best cosmetic results.

Are there surgical alternatives to Sculptra Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a form of plastic surgery for a perkier derriere. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure which uses liposuction to remove excess fat from one area of the body. The fat taken is harvested and for placement into the treatment area.

There are many risks associated  with having liposuction including the risk of undergoing general anesthesia. Another risk involves the loss of sensation in the surgical area and even death. The most common risk is that of a fatal fat embolism. This occurs when fat is injected too deeply into the gluteal muscles and the fat accidentally enters the bloodstream blocking the blood flow. The blockage of blood flow results in an embolism and potentially death.

Another option is a surgical butt lift performed by a plastic surgeon. With a surgical butt lift, excess skin is removed from unwanted areas of the buttocks. An incision is typically placed just below the waistline to make the incision mark unnoticeable in a bikini or low-rise jeans. During this surgical procedure the buttocks is shaped using liposuction into your desired shape.

There are other surgical body contouring procedures such as air sculpt. Air sculpt surgically removes fat cells individually from targeted areas. The fat cells removed is then meticulously reinserted into targeted areas of the buttocks one cell at a time.

With any surgical procedure you increase your risk of complications for that reason more patients are opting for a non surgical approach to increasing the size of their derriere.

Which shapes do patients want for their buttocks?

There are three most popular shapes for butt lift. These shapes are the curvy, upside-down heart and rounded bubble. The shape you choose should be discussed with you physician to determine if it is the best shape for your body.

If you have more of a square shape (no hips) an upside-down heart shape is more suitable. An upside-down heart shape will add definition to your hips and also curve your buttocks.

If you are V-shaped a rounded bubble shape butt lift will give you the right definition. For V-shaped body types a curvy approach is best. A curvy approach will enhance the hips more giving you the right definition.

What other ways can you augment the shape of your buttocks?

There are a number of butt enhancing exercises you can do the give yourself a butt lift and accentuate your curves. These exercises will strengthen your glutes muscles and provide roundness to your buttocks.

Squats and lunges are perhaps the most popular and most effective exercises to enhance the shape of the buttocks. For squats to be effective you must fully engage the gluteal muscles therefore squats must be deep. A correctly done squat is one done with your thighs parallel to the floor. If it seems too easy, you probably are not doing it correctly,

The Romanian deadlift is also a great exercise to enhance the shape of the buttocks. In addition to lunges you can add weight using dumbells.

Coolsculpting is also another alternative treatment  to enhance the shape of the buttocks. Coolsculpting is an amazing non-surgical body contouring to remove a fat bulge without any downtime in the abdomen, buttock, flanks, arms, knees, bra area or legs.
