Your butt’s natural pert and plumpness may decrease as you age or due to other factors such as weight loss and pregnancy. As a result, you may not achieve your desired outlook when you put on your favorite pair of jeans. If this is something that bothers you, you might be considering a Las Vegas Sculptra® and Radiesse® Butt Lift to enhance the curve and shape of your butt. Unlike the traditional butt lift, a Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical option, which is minimally invasive and low-risk. It is a perfect option if you are not ready for surgery but want a more lifted butt. Here is a detailed explanation about Sculptra butt lift.

What is a Sculptra butt lift?
It is a minimally invasive procedure involving dermal fillers to give your butt more definition. Unlike other dermal fillers, the process uses poly-L-lactic to stimulate collagen production in your body. Collagen is your body’s natural protein that gives the skin its shape and structure. Specialists use Sculptra injections at targeted areas beneath your skin to stimulate deep collagen growth. You may need several injections to notice changes in volume and shape, as collagen growth takes several weeks to months.
What does the procedure involve?
After arriving at your doctor’s office, you will change into a paper gown. Next, your healthcare provider may require that you lay on your stomach to access your butt easily. Your doctor sterilizes your skin using a swab and alcohol to reduce infection risk. You may or may not get topical anesthesia to your butt; this depends on your preference and the doctor’s recommendation. Anesthesia reduces pain and discomfort as your provider injects the Sculptra. The doctor injects the fillers into your buttocks; this only takes a few moments.
After the procedure, you may resume usual activities, but you must adhere to specific instructions. For example, your doctor may ask you to avoid alcohol and any rigorous exercise after the injection for a day or two. The results may not be evident immediately after the procedure, and it can take up to 6 months to see the final results. Your doctor may also inform you that the results are temporary since Sculptra dissolves within two years after a procedure.
Potential risks of Sculptra butt lift
This procedure has several risks, but it is uncommon to experience severe side effects and complications after a Sculptra butt lift. The most commonly reported side effects by previous patients include:
- Asymmetrical results whereby one butt cheek may appear different from the other.
- Bleeding, bruising, and redness at the injection site.
- Bumps on your skin. These tend to smooth out after some time.
- Acne breakouts at the injection site. These are usually temporary and fade away over time.
There’s also a risk of developing an infection, and it usually causes signs and symptoms such as green or yellow discharge at the injection site, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and fever. Contact your doctor immediately you notice these symptoms
