Sculptra Butt Lift
So, you are here to learn more about the hottest topic in cosmetic surgery – the non-invasive Sculptra buttock augmentation, also known as the Sculptra Butt Lift.
If you are not happy with your behind and feel you want to enhance your silhouette and curvature, then you may not be alone. In fact, you are one of the many people seeking this increasingly popular procedure. A recent study by the American Association of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) found buttock augmentation to be by far the fastest growing cosmetic procedure. The most talked about Brazilian Butt Lift increases the buttock when fat is transferred from one area of the body to the buttocks. On the other hand, Sculptra Butt Lift directly increase the buttock volume as a result of volume addition and collagen stimulation. Most suitable persons are those who are lean and near ideal body weight.
So, let’s talk about more about the most requested procedure at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin and the alternative options that are available to you.
The Science behind a Sculptra Butt Lift
Sculptra is a biological stimulant that promotes the lay down of collagen in the body. These deposits of newly formed natural collagen form wherever Sculptra molecules are injected in the body. The newly laid collagen will in turn add volume to the treated area helping plumb up and contour the texture of the surrounding tissue. Sculptra is made of an FDA approved compound, which in fact was approved back in the early noughties as a dermal filler for facial aesthetics. Nearly two decades later, we at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin along with innovative procedure developers worldwide started to think outside the box. Due to our extensive experience in using Sculptra, we find ourselves in a great position to understand and predict how this precious Poly-L-Lactic Acid complex reactwith the human tissue.
Sculptra Butt lift relies on the ability of the PLLA molecules of Sculptra to act both as a dermal filler and as a volumizing agent. The actual compound will directly increase volume of the buttock. However, that’s not the only party piece of behind the science of Sculptra; the real benefit is in the exponential collagen stimulation it causes when mixed with other safe ingredients, a technique developed in close cooperation with various pillars of the aesthetic industry.
The mixing technique as well as the unique method of injection of Sculptra mixture will help the medicine to produce maximum volume projection from as little active PLLA ingredient as possible. It’s completely different from the Sculptra use in facial aesthetics where additives and concentrations of the PLLA based compound are entirely different.
Sculptra Butt lift vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
There are other alternatives like the Brazilian Butt Lift and Silicone implants. Both alternatives require surgery. We find that many patients prefer not to undergo surgery for many reasons. One of the biggest reasons to choose Sculptra Butt Lift is body weight. many patients who desire fuller butt profile are lean and fit. They naturally don’t carry enough fat due to their high level of activity and athletic trim. For a successful Brazilian Butt Lift we require large amount of fat to be harvested from donor areas in order to produce good results.
You may have considered the least favorable approach, the dreaded butt implants. These implants are not natural and have their own limitations and risk. It maybe the case that you don’t want the downtime associated with either of these procedures or don’t want to give up your exercise habits? Silicone implants can become too palpable, you can see and feel them without much gluteal fat cover. Buttock silicone implants are not popular and poorly accepted by patients. The main concern is that generically shaped implants cannot contour to the individual shape.
Equally, fat harvesting and transfer (which we also perform at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic) requires you to carry fat in a donor areas (like the tummy, love handles or thighs) in order to collect and inject in the buttock. Furthermore, not all the fat which is transferred from one location to another survives. Post-operative uptake rate of lipofilling depends on many factors including the individual’s health, sleeping position, general posture and level of activity and metabolism. Sometimes the transferred fat breaks down unevenly leading to unsightly dimpling, asymmetry and unequal bum projection.
Size matters and this is often overlooked. The Sculptra Butt Lift has gained popularity in petite athletic people who don’t require the large volume enhancement seen in some of the A-list celebs. They work hard and feel fit, but they are unhappy about their behind and want to feel feminine and curvaceous.
This last point is very important in the decision making to go ahead with the Sculptra Butt Lift. The desired buttock shape and projection is gradually achieved by repeated treatments. You the patient are the decision maker in how much and how often you should progress your enhancement. When you feel you’ve reached a level of buttock augmentation you’re happy with, then the treatment enters a maintenance phase on annual basis.
In summary, you should consider the Sculptra Butt Lift if you (like many people) are not an ideal candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift for one of the many reasons discussed above.
So, you’ve made the decision – what next?
The Sculptra Butt lift is a quick in-and-out office-based procedure where a special blend of PLLA Sculptra mixed with a few other ingredients and painlessly administered into predetermined areas of the buttock. The procedure takes less than half an hour and the area treated will be numb for 1-2 hours. You can resume normal activities and strenuous exercise if you wish. The treated area should start to gradually enhance over the next few weeks. A month to six weeks later you will come back in for an assessment and a second session. The number of sessions required depends on your desired level of bum projection and your satisfaction with the visual results as seen on your before and after images. The total number of treatments is highly individual and dependent upon your age, health gender and above all, your baseline physique and overall expectation. But we will help guide you during your first consult.
