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 buttocks 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.
The Science behind a Sculptra Butt Lift
So, let’s talk about more about the most requested procedure at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin and the alternative options that could be available to you.
Sculptra is a biological stimulant. It promotes the lay-down of collagen in the body. Deposits of newly formed natural collagen form where Sculptra molecules are injected in the body. The newly laid collagen will in turn add volume to the treated area. It helps to plumb-up, and contour the texture of the surrounding tissue. Sculptra is made of an FDA approved compound. In fact it 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 found ourselves in a great position to understand and predict how this precious Poly-L-Lactic Acid complex react with your body.
How Sculptra Buttock Augmentation Work
Sculptra contains Poly-L-Lactic-Acid (PLLA) molecules which stimulate collagen production. The compound directly increases volume of the buttocks through continued lay-down of collagen. A feature of Sculptra further enhanced enhanced 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 injection methods of the Sculptra mixture helps the medicine to produce maximum volume from as little active PLLA ingredient as possible. It’s a completely different method from the technique used in facial aesthetics. For facial use, additives and concentrations of the Sculptra are entirely different.
Sculptra vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
There are other alternatives to Sculptra. They include 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 petite body weight. Many patients who want fuller butt profile are lean and fit. They don’t carry enough fat on them. This is due to their high level of activity and athletic trim. For successful Brazilian Butt Lift, we need large amount of fat to be harvested from donor areas in order to produce good results.
Fat harvesting and lipofilling (which we also perform at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic) requires you to carry enough fat in donor areas. Harvest areas like the tummy, love handles or thighs. In order to collect and inject in the buttock certain amount of fat needs to be present. Furthermore, not all the fat which is transferred from one location to another survives. Post-operative success rate of lipofilling depends on many factors. These the person’s health, and sleeping habits, and sitting position, and general posture and level of activity and metabolism.
Most Caucasian slim built patients require 2-4 treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.
What about Silicone Implants?
You may also consider the least favorable solution for enhanced butt. The dreaded butt silicone implants. Silicone implants are not natural. They have their own limitations and risk. Silicone implants can become too palpable. You can see and feel them if you don’t have much gluteal fat. Buttock silicone implants are not popular and poorly accepted by patients. The main concern is that fixed-shape implants cannot contour to the individual shape. It may also be the case that you don’t want the downtime associated with silicone implant procedure. Extended recovery. Or don’t want to give up your exercise habits?
Final buttock size matters
This is often overlooked. Most slim petite people workout hard and feel fit, but they are unhappy about their behind and want to feel feminine and curvaceous. 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.
This last point is very important in your decision making whether to go ahead with the Sculptra Butt Lift or not. You require a number of treatments. Sculptra is not a once off procedure. The desired butt shape and projection is gradually achieved by a course of treatments. You, the patient is the decision maker in how much and how often you should add more 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.

The area treated will be numb for 1-2 hours afterwards. You can resume normal activities and strenuous exercise immediately.
