Are you bothered by a flat or sagging behind? Sometimes no matter how many spin classes you take and how many squats you do, gravity still takes its toll. The buttock region is getting more and more attention in aesthetics these days, in part due to celebrity clients like Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and JLo.
A butt lift with Sculptra® can be an excellent way to add additional fullness and roundness to a butt that is naturally flat or has begun to droop and sag over time. This is an innovative, surgery-free method to augment the buttocks- the Sculptra® Butt Lift- and it is available at Renew MediSpa.
This is a great option for those who would like more fullness in the buttocks but are not interested in the more invasive options involving fat transfer and/or surgical implants.
The benefits of using Sculptra® for your Butt Lift include
- Gradual, natural looking results
- No significant pain during or after treatment sessions
- No downtime
- No surgical risk and no post procedure restrictions n activity
- Can improve the appearance of cellulite
- Can be combined with PDO threads (“Thread Lifting”) to achieve even more smoothing and lifting in a shorter period of time.
What Is Sculptra® ?
Sculptra® is an FDA-cleared injectable collagen stimulator which has been used for many years to restore facial volume loss. Made with poly-L-lactic acid, this product has been widely used around the world since 1999 and the treatment has been performed on hundreds of thousands of patients in over 30 countries.
Over the course of several treatment sessions, Sculptra® is injected directly into the area requiring volume. Gradually, new collagen will form to re-inflate the collagen depleted areas. Results of Sculptra® can last over 2 years. Eventually, the Sculptra® particles are absorbed by your body, but the collagen you build is very long lasting.
How The Sculptra® Butt Lift Works
The area to be treated will be assessed with you in a standing position. Before photos of the area will be done, and the treatment zones marked. Lidocaine is added to the Sculptra® to enhance comfort. Lidocaine is also placed at a couple of entry points for the delivery cannula. Using a microcannula and in some instances a small needle, Dr. Vuich will place the Sculptra® in the regions where more volume is desired. Some of the injection will be performed with you standing, some with you lying on your stomach. You may feel pressure and an occasional pinching sensation, but not pain in general. Areas where there is cellulite can also be addressed as needed. Once all of the product is placed, the area will be massaged for a few minutes.
The volume seen initially is that of the sterile water the Sculptra® particles are suspended in for injection. This water will be reabsorbed by your body over the next 1 to 2 days. Each Sculptra® treatment can generally be completed in an hour.
Desired results usually require 2-3 treatment sessions, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
Be patient! The results appear gradually but once there are quite long lasting (years).
In some instances, 3rd “touch up” session may be desired.
Sculptra® With Thread Lifting and/or Platelet Rich Fibrin
Thread lifting and PRP/PRF aren’t “just for the face” any longer!
At Renew MediSpa, Dr. Vuich has utilized Eurothreads PDO threads to provide some “immediate lift” to the buttock region, which is nice to have while you are waiting for the Sculptra® volume to develop. PDO threads will also stimulate collagen to form in the dermis of the skin, which will target crepy skin.
Another combination to consider would be adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF). These are serum derived from your own blood which is drawn at the time of your procedure and run through special FDA approved kits, to yield your own growth factors and even stem cells! This provides yet another stimulus for tissue growth and can be injected in the same way and at the same time that the Scupltra is injected.
After the Sculptra® Butt Lift
After your Sculptra® butt lift, you will be asked to massage the area regularly for 5 days. This further ensures even distribution of the Sculptra® particles. Over time, the area will have a more full, contoured look.
Future injection sessions can be used for further augmentation, if desired, or for maintenance of result.
Sculptra® Butt Lift Cost
Sculptra® Butt Lift pricing needs to be individualized based on the desired goals of the client and the amount of volume loss. It is not unusual, for example, to require 5 vials of Sculptra® per side, x 2 treatment sessions, for a total of 10 vials.
At Renew MediSpa we do give a “volume discount” for these multi vial injections. PDO Threads (Eurothreads) can also be added at an additional charge, depending on the number and type of threads used. PRP or PRF can be added at a discount as well, for this combination procedure.
