There are many factors that can cause your buttocks to lose volume and sag. Aging causes weakened gluteal muscles that contribute to loss of firmness. Pregnancy and significant weight fluctuations can also cause you to develop a flat bottom. It can be hard to change the shape of your buttocks with diet and exercise alone. If you want to enhance your backside, you have a number of innovative cosmetic procedures to choose from. Many women in Dallas choose a Sculptra® butt lift because it offers a number of benefits.
What Is Sculptra® Butt Lift?
Sculptra® is an injectable filler that is used for soft tissue augmentation. It’s made with poly-lactic acid that stimulates natural collagen production by activating your body’s natural healing response. It’s unique to other dermal fillers because it works deep within your body’s dermis to revitalize the production of collagen and restore the inner structure of the skin.
The Sculptra® butt lift in Dallas stimulates collagen growth, and it also thickens the skin with micro-invasive injections. The procedure is an effective way to achieve natural-looking results. There are many benefits of a Sculptra® butt lift, which include:
- Short recovery time
- No anesthetic injections
- Subtle results
- Fast procedure
A liquid butt lift with Sculptra® improves the skin quality and elasticity, reduces the appearance of cellulite, and naturally contours and lifts the buttocks. After the procedure in Dallas, you’ll notice that your buttocks look more flattering in clothes.
Good candidates for the procedure will want to achieve a fuller rear-end without surgery. Many women have a liquid butt lift administered because they don’t have adequate fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift (fat transfer). In addition, this is an ideal procedure for individuals who want long-term but not permanent results. It is also important that candidates are in good health with a positive outlook about the results. You may be a candidate for the procedure if you experience:
- Loss of volume and sagging
- Dimpling and creases on the buttocks
- Absence of a crease beneath one cheek
Although a Brazilian Butt Lift and non-invasive liquid butt lift with Sculptra® both enhance the shape of your behind, a Brazilian Butt Lift requires liposuction, which significantly extends recovery time. A liquid butt lift with Sculptra® in Dallas is ideal for those with busy lifestyles because recovery is minimal.
What Is the Procedure Like?
During your Sculptra® butt lift consultation, we will answer any questions you have about the procedure. This will also give you the opportunity to tell us your specific goals, which will help determine how many vials of Sculptra® you need to complete the treatment.
Because a liquid butt lift isn’t an invasive surgical procedure, preparation is minimal, and you won’t need to undergo lab testing. However, you should avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, and other anti-inflammatory medications for a few days before the procedure. This will reduce the risk of bleeding.
Immediately before the procedure, you may have a topical anesthetic administered to keep you comfortable. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, multiple injections of the filler will be administered into your buttocks. A small cannula (instead of a needle) is used to make the injections, which will help to reduce discomfort and prevent bruising.
In most circumstances, the treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. If you need more than one treatment, they are typically scheduled about three to twelve weeks apart, which will depend on your desired goal and schedule. Most individuals need around two to three treatments to reach their goals.
While you may notice an improvement in your buttocks as early as six weeks following the first treatment, the final results will surface about six months after the procedure. It’s recommended to have a follow-up treatment about 18 to 24 months after the procedure. If you want to maintain the full results of the procedure, maintenance treatments are recommended every year after the initial follow-up treatment.
Although you may feel slightly sore after the treatment, you can resume your everyday activities immediately following your Sculptra® butt lift in Dallas. However, try to refrain from strenuous exercise for the first day after the procedure. The following tips can help speed recovery:
- Stay out of direct sunlight or tanning beds.
- Apply an ice pack to the area for a few minutes the first day following the treatment.
- Massage the area for five minutes, five times per day, for five days after the procedure.
A liquid butt lift with Sculptra® can be administered in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures to further enhance your body’s contours. For instance, some women want to maximize cellulite reduction, so they have a Sculptra® butt lift performed with another cellulite reduction procedure.
