Thanks to the prominence of the booty at red carpet events and in music videos, the butt has gained a lot of attention in the 21st century. The popularity of butt augmentation procedures has not slowed down in the last few years as more patients decide to gain a butt that is bigger and more contoured in appearance. Surgical butt augmentation procedures, such as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) or butt implants give patients an enhanced contour to the buttocks. However, not every patient wants to have an invasive surgical procedure in order to gain a bigger booty size along with a more enhanced appearance. Patients that have a BBL performed, or have butt implants placed in the booty, are not able to enjoy subtle changes to the booty as the results from either procedure are quite obvious to others. Because of the unmistakable changes made to the butt through surgical butt augmentation surgery, some patients are making their desired changes to the backside through nonsurgical buttock augmentation treatments.
Nonsurgical Butt Augmentation Options for Patients
One of the main reasons that patients decide to have a nonsurgical butt augmentation procedure is because treatments such as a BBL can result in irregularities in the contour of the butt because all of the transferred fat does not survive the procedure. Plus, there is no guarantee that the transferred fat will be able to give a consistent look to the area being treated by the surgeon.
In order to gain a more uniform look, patients often turn to these nonsurgical butt augmentation methods:
- Emsculpt is performed using high-intensity electromagnetic energy, which is focused, so it can produce up to 20,000 contractions in about 30 minutes. Because there are so many contractions during the half hour, the muscles enjoy a workout that is more intense than a person is capable of performing on their own. The contractions work to thicken and strengthen existing muscle fibers while also building new fibers that increase the amount of muscle mass as well as burn off existing fat. Emsculpt for nonsurgical butt augmentation increases the volume of the buttocks in the upper area of the butt so the final look is a rounder and firmer appearance. There is also a “lift effect” that pulls up the crease where the butt meets the thighs. Patients will enjoy continued improvements for about six months. The final results depend on the amount of Emsculpt treatments that are performed on the patient.
- Sculptra stimulates the production of collagen so the patient will enjoy an improvement in the overall quality of the skin and the amount of skin elasticity in the booty. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid and doctors consider it to be a good option for anyone that wants to gain a better contour to the butt along with an increased amount of lift and projection, In addition, Sculptra helps to provide a smooth appearance to the backside. The first step in the process of injecting Sculptra into the buttocks is making sure it is diluted using sterile water. It is necessary to dilute Sculptra so there is less of a chance of lumps appearing after the treatment. This step also gives Sculptra more of a chance to spread throughout the injected area. It takes around 6-12 weeks for the poly-L-lactic acid particles to construct the necessary scaffolding to grow new collagen in the treated area (as Sculptra promotes the building of collagen). It will take about six months for the final results to be visible to others. The final results depend on the amount of Sculptra that is injected into the buttocks.
- Thermage is a radiofrequency (RF) treatment that gives patients a youthful and toned look. It should be noted that Thermage does not provide any additional fullness to the buttocks. Thermage does boost the production of collagen to provide a tighter appearance to the skin. Thermage can be combined with other treatments like Emsculpt so patients can enjoy increased volume as well as a tighter appearance to the buttocks. Some Thermage results of RF treatments can be viewed instantly but it takes about six months for the final results to become visible. The total amount of results enjoyed by a patient depends on the number of treatments performed by the doctor.
Patients need to know that, since these treatments are nonsurgical, the final results are not permanent and additional treatments will be necessary to maintain the desired results.
Butt Augmentation Consultation with a Board-Certified Surgeon
Before making the final decision about having nonsurgical butt augmentation, a patient should schedule a consultation appointment with a board-certified surgeon experienced in performing surgical butt augmentation as well as nonsurgical butt augmentation. It is important for patients to share their reasons for wanting to undergo butt augmentation and what they hope to achieve with the final results. Once the doctor knows the desired final results, realistic expectations can be set so the patient will know what to expect once the procedure is performed. A board-certified doctor will also examine the patient to determine the best treatment option to deliver the desired final butt augmentation results.
