Few things turn heads quite like a killer round butt. That’s why so many women want to know how to bring their best butt game to rescue. You can use butt lifters and exotic shapewear but what if you want a more lasting set of curves? A Brazilian Butt Lift has been a popular choice for many years. This method takes fat from other places via liposuction and transfers it to the buttocks. Another less popular surgical option is butt implants, where silicone implants are inserted.
But also consider a non-invasive route to a plumper posterior – a non-surgical butt-lift. Here’s everything you need to know about non-surgical butt lifts.
A Non-Surgical Approach
To achieve a curvy bottom without surgery, providers are using Sculptra, a poly L-lactic acid that boosts your butt by stimulating your body’s own collagen production. Other fillers can also be used for this procedure, but Sculptra is usually best suited for buttock augmentation because you can get a fairly significant augmentation without actually using much of the product. Rather than hyaluronic acid fillers which pump more volume into your skin, Sculptra triggers a response in your body that creates new collagen.
The Upside of a Non-Surgical Butt Lift
To many, the allure of the fillers is that they often give subtle results that fade naturally over time. The non-surgical butt-lift is different. You think more of a change in contour and shape than a totally-lifted look.
Secondly, a non-surgical butt-lift can be performed even if you lack the necessary amount of fat in other areas of your body that a Brazilian Butt Lift requires. For a patient who does not have any excess fat that can be harvested via liposuction, such and they may still have a chance for hips and buttocks enhancement without resorting to a buttocks implant.
And unlike any surgical procedure, the non-surgical butt lift doesn’t really have downtime. You might get a little sore but that’s it. You can go back to almost all of your normal activities the same day, but you’ll need to hold off on rigorous gym workouts or exercises for a few days.
The Downside of a Non-Surgical Butt Lift
Though it not as risky as going under the knife, the procedure does come with its own set of risks. The biggest problem with Sculptra is that you can’t dissolve it like other fillers. In some rare cases, Sculptra may leave lumps or bumps that will have to dissolve and fade naturally over time. And any injection poses a risk of infection, though the same is true with a surgical procedure.
Navigating Other Factors
A non-surgical butt lift will require a few treatment sessions to get the full effect, unlike a surgical procedure. Plan on three or four treatments spaced out a month or two apart.
Despite the growing interest in backside injectables, some plastic surgeons say the is still the gold standard. So the bottom line? Deciding which option is the best for you ultimately comes down to the look you’re going for. Each patient must be evaluated individually and it is important to have an honest conversation about what the patient’s ultimate cosmetic goal is.
For the best bottom results, make sure you consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is familiar with both surgical and non-surgical butt lifting methods.
