According to the 2016 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, injectable fillers are steadily increasing in popularity. Fillers can correct a large range of aging effects and provide more volume in areas that lack proportion. They are used to erase wrinkles and plump up sunken facial areas (such as the cheeks and under-eye area). They are also being used to plump up the buttocks.
Since two of the most popular cosmetic procedures are dermal fillers and butt augmentation, patients are seeking a way to have a non-surgical butt lift using dermal fillers. Jamie S. Schwartz, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, told Allure Magazine, “There has been a huge request and demand for gluteal augmentation including fillers.”
Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid used as a non-surgical butt lift method due to its ability to add plenty of volume with minimal filler material. Sculptra works by triggering an inflammatory response in the body which creates scar tissue and stimulates an increase in collagen growth around the product. Patients can expect to be a bit sore but there really isn’t any downtime or recovery. Patients will need several sessions, spaced at two or three months apart, to get the full effect. The filler provides subtle results which will fade naturally over time.
Sculptra is not without certain risks such as lumps or bumps in the treatment area. If a patient doesn’t like the results, or if lumps occur, the patient must wait until the product naturally dissolves or have it surgically removed. It can take several years for the results of Sculptra to fade. When considering any cosmetic procedure, it is always best to consult with a board-certified surgeon who specializes in various techniques for butt enhancement. The surgeon can help determine which treatment is best for the patient as well as provide the safest and best possible outcome for the butt augmentation procedure.
