A Brazilian Butt Lift with Sculptra, also known as a Sculptra-Butt Lift, is a non-surgical butt augmenting procedure. It uses injections to give more volume to the buttocks without a high risk of complications. Compared to its surgical counterpart, the Brazilian-Butt Lift, a Sculptra-Butt Lift takes a more natural approach to achieve that curvy and voluminous behind.
Traditional Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift
The ‘traditional’ Brazilian-Butt Lift (BBL) is a major cosmetic surgery, performed under anesthesia. In a traditional BBL, a surgeon extracts fat from other areas in your body using liposuction, then it is re-injected into your buttocks.
This procedure carries a significant risk of complications including fat embolism, deep vein thrombosis, necrosis, and of course, the typical risks of surgery as a whole. Many plastic surgeons are refusing to perform the procedure as these risks have outweighed the cosmetic benefits.
Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift with Sculptra
Brazilian Butt Lift with Sculptra on the other hand is non-invasive and very safe. The procedure uses Sculptra, a very unique dermal filler.
Sculptra is a collagen production stimulant whose main ingredient is Poly-L-Lactic Acid. Once administered in the body, it acts to boost the body’s self-regulated collagen production. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the human body that effectively ‘holds the body together.’ Collagen is present in different parts of the body, like skin, bones, and muscles. It is responsible for providing the body with structure and volume.
The natural angle of a Sculptra-Butt Lift in comparison to the Brazilian-Butt Lift: is that whereas the latter takes fats from one part of the body and places them in another, a Sculptra-Butt lift enhances the growth of a compound that already existed in the butt.
Before your Procedure
We recommend that you do not smoke for 7 to 10 days before the process. We also advise that you avoid alcohol immediately before and after the procedure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift with Sculptra Procedure
Your nurse practitioner uses a syringe to administer Sculptra using the retrograde injection technique. The injections are relatively painless since the compound contains an anesthetic that immediately kicks after the first injection. On average, one would require between 6 to 8 vials, but this all depends on the quantity recommended by the practitioner. The Sculptra-injections can be spread out over multiple sessions or done as a one-off. During the procedure, your practitioner will lightly massage the area to achieve an even distribution.
After your Procedure
Since collagen production is a naturally occurring process, it takes about 1 to 2 weeks after the Sculptra-injections to see the full effects of the procedure.
After the procedure, you should continue gently massaging the injected areas for 2 to 3 days. Remember to keep off heavy exercises for the same period and give the medication time to settle in.
