Sculptra Butt-Lift – Buttock Enhancement and Augmentation
Too much in one place and not enough in another is Mother Nature’s paradox.
One of the most desirable treatments in cosmetic surgery today is buttock enhancement or augmentation. Whether it is enlarging the curves of an area, restoring the volume of one’s youth or smoothing out dimples, the treatment of the buttock area has always been a difficult area to approach. As we all age there appears to be a significant reduction in both the muscular and soft tissue of the buttock. Like a balloon that deflates, the buttock area tends to flatten and the skin appears dimpled and less elastic over the years. While invasive buttock implants can be wrought with complications and fat harvesting difficult to find in thin individuals, it appears there is a lot to be desired in terms of non invasive techniques for the perfect butt lift or enhancement.
Dr. Frank is a world renowned expert in filler technology, tumescent liposuction, and fat transfer. For those that are good candidates and have fat in other body parts to use, fat transfer remains the most convenient way to augment the buttock. This procedure is widely known as the Brazilian Butt Lift. Unfortunately, until recently there have been no optimal options otherwise.
Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank has developed a novel, non invasive technique to safely provide a butt lift augmentation that is lasting and effective. Using primarily the filler Sculptra with a unique dilution and technique, we can give both women and men back the buttock of their youth or even one they never had. Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler for volume loss in the face. Made with Poly-L-Lactic acid, Sculptra stimulates the body’s natural mechanisms to replace lost collagen to give a semi-permanent result.
With a series of treatments over a few months, Sculptra is injected directly into the buttocks at 2-4 week intervals. The treatment generally takes about 30 minutes to perform with little to no downtime. Patients return to exercise in 3 days. The Sculptra substance is injected in a large saline solution which gives the appearance of immediate results and an impression of what the ultimate result will be right afterward. This ‘saline’ effect reduces over 24-48 hrs. As the Sculptra works over a few weeks, you will begin to notice a change of growth. Gradually, it will inflate, smooth and lift the buttock to the desired shape improving with each treatment.
Results of Sculptra can last as long as 2 years. Patients usually do touch ups 1-2 times a year to maintain optimal results. Desired results usually require 2-5 treatments. For more superficial fixing of dimples, cellulite, or focused areas of volume loss the addition of Radiesse, or calcium hydroxyappetite filler, can be used alone or in conjunction with the Sculptra Butt-Lift. Ask Dr. Frank if this treatment is right for you.
