When it comes to the latest body trends, the runaway winner is having an ample backside. From celebrities and singers to fitness gurus, more public figures are rocking shapely buttocks – and you want to be one of them!
One of the most popular treatment options for flat or sagging buttocks is an augmentation; however, this surgical procedure may be too aggressive for some patients. An augmentation is performed through fat grafting or even with implants. While these procedures are safe when performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, prospective patients should know that there’s a new buttock lift treatment available in Boston!
A Sculptra non-surgical buttock lift is an innovative procedure that uses a biostimulant injection to improve a patient’s own collagen production and boost volume at the injection site. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid, which naturally promotes long-term collagen production. It is an FDA approved product for facial injections, but it can also be used to enhance the buttock in appropriate patients. With multiple injections, Sculptra can trigger enough collagen production to plump out depleted areas.
The Sculptra non-surgical buttock lift takes advantage of the injection’s plumping powers by gently augmenting a patient’s natural curves. The procedure takes about 20 minutes to complete, and is relatively painless. Most patients will need about 2-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart to see results. Patients will be advised to massage the injection site for a few days to ensure that Sculptra doesn’t collect in one spot. Side effects are minor and can include swelling or bruising.
Results from the Sculptra non-surgical buttock lift can last up to two years.
