There are a number of reasons why a person’s butt may start to sag. This primarily can be caused as a part of the aging process as over time we lose some of the collagen in the skin, and this rear end area can start to droop a little. In these cases a person may be concerned by stretch marks, or the general texture of the skin in this area. For these individuals there are a number of different, effective ways to tackle this.
Alternatively, women who exercise a lot and those who have lost weight may find that some of this toning or weight loss has occurred in the upper buttocks area. This can have the detrimental effect of giving this area a more masculine appearance. When this occurs some people may wish to have a ‘butt lift’ to add some more feminine curves to this area.
Similar to tummy tucks and liposuction, gluteal augmentation has traditionally been carried out as a surgical procedure, but in this case butt implants are inserted within the skin to give the appearance of a perter derriere. However, many people today would rather avoid plastic surgery due to the costs and potential downtime so instead look to other options to improve their appearance. It should be noted that for those that want dramatic changes to their appearance, then visiting a plastic surgeon may be required. For those looking for a subtle lift, with the minimum of recovery time, using the body’s own collagen production then a dermal filler such as a Sculptra butt lift (also commonly referred to as Sculptra BBL) is a good option. It can also be combined with other procedures to help with body contouring overall, such as CoolSculpting.
How Do Sculptra Injections & Sculptra BBL Work?
You might have heard of a “Brazilian butt lift” and wondered what it was? This term has become more popular in recent years and refers to non-invasive dermal filler injections that are used to provide more shape to the butt area. One of our preferred methods for this is to use Sculptra buttock injections. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA approved dermal filler utilizing a substances called poly-L-lactic acid that performs well in this particular treatment area.
Sculptra is injected into the buttocks area, and collagen growth is stimulated at the injection site. Unlike invasive surgery, Sculptra for the buttocks is a quick and easy treatment to undertake. Sculptra butt lift costs can vary depending on the number of treatments that are required. Generally, depending on the level of augmentation required a realistic expectation is that a patient may require at least three treatments. These treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart. When you have a Sculptra consultation with Dr. Green a treatment plan will be arranged. For leaner patients that do not have too much extra fat, this particular cosmetic treatment can work well, so these people make good Sculptra BBL candidates.
Typically a patient will see improvements around 60 to 90 days after the Sculptra injections have taken place. For a non-surgical procedure, Sculptra injections are long lasting, and an individual can expect to retain the final result for two years and in some cases much longer. The good news is that there is minimal down time and individuals can go about their daily lives immediately after the treatment session. In addition to this side effects are typically less likely due to the fact that Sculptra is based on a natural substance.
