On non-surgical butt lifts

What looks sexy to you? It could be an athletic body, an hourglass figure, or a slim and slender frame. Nowadays, a shapely butt is becoming more popular with rising stars, celebrities, and social media personalities who proudly show off their curvy bodies and round behinds. They may be naturally curvy or have achieved them with exercise or through a butt lift! So if your behind is nowhere near what you would like them to be, don’t worry, a shapely derriere is now possible.

Cosmetic procedures have kept an upward trend through the years. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there was a 7.4 percent increase in surgical procedures in 2019 compared to the previous year. Butt augmentation and butt lift procedures have increased as well. A butt augmentation is performed by fat-grafting, also popularly known as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). As the patient is under a general anaesthesia, a cannula is placed in area where fat will be taken and transferred to the buttocks to improve its shape. Unfortunately, this had issues as its mortality rate was estimated to be as high as 1:3,000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Plus, it comes with side effects that vary from bruising and stretchmarks to more serious ones such as fat embolism. 

Now there is a safer alternative to BBL. The Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical procedure using poly-L-lactic acid fillers that encourage collagen production for more shapely yet natural-looking buttocks.

Now there is a safer alternative to BBL. The Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical procedure using poly-L-lactic acid fillers that encourage collagen production for more shapely yet natural-looking buttocks. Collagen production takes time, hence several trips might be needed and results might take a few months. Since there is no surgery and this may or may not use a topical anaesthesia, however, side effects and downtime are minimal as well. This treatment is ideal for a lot of body types but much more so for those who have less fat in the buttocks. Results are not permanent, but may last up to two years.

Butt fillers, while temporary, are a safer and less expensive alternative than surgery to achieve your desired proportions. Even if the Sculptra butt fillers are non-invasive, it is important to have it done by a trained professional at a reputable clinic. Be open if you have ongoing health concerns, medications, or other issues so that they will be able to correctly assess if you are qualified for the procedure. Listen and follow pre- and post-treatment guidelines, and don’t hesitate to ask questions and follow-up, especially if there are side effects.
