The Brazilian Butt Lift has become an increasingly popular procedure performed in the United States.  It is a procedure popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian to increase the size of their back-sides by transferring fat from their body to their butts.  Sculptra is a cosmetic filler used to make a face look more youthful by adding volume; it i, however,  a relatively unknown option to increase the size and lift the butt in an otherwise thin women who don’t have enough fat to offer.

Attention to the breast and breast enhancement has generally captured the imagination of western and asian cultures. Larger and uplifted breasts are seen as more voluptuous and sensual; and add the the hourglass curves of the female figure. Until recently, most people outside of Latin cultures ignored the bottom curves of the hourglass. With the increase in popularity of the brazilian butt lift, patients can now increase the size of their breast and butt… the T and A are now in harmony.

What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift?

The brazilian butt lift is to the back-side as breast augmentation is to the front side.  The brazilian butt lift has been an extremely popular procedure outside of the Unites States for years as a procedure that could enhance the volume and appearance of the buttock by transferring fat from the body to a person’s flat or sagging butt.  

The procedure has become increasing popular in the United States as some celebrities have directed more and more attention to their own back-sides. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Tyra Banks, and Jennifer Lopez have turned on their thousands of follower’s to the beauty of a beautiful and curvy butt. 

Why Need Liposuction?

The brazilian butt lift is performed by first getting fat from anywhere around the body that fat is available. This is performed by performing liposuction. In general, we need to take about 3x more fat than we want to transfer to the butt;  some fat will be lost, some fat will not survive the transfer. Popular areas to take the fat include the waist, abdomen, and thighs. Because the brazilian butt lift requires the liposculpting, it inherently gives a woman a more ideal hourglass figure.

Use Sculptra Instead Of Fat

Some patients simply don’t have enough fat to offer. You need a large amount of fat to increase the size of the butt. This is where Sculptra comes in. 

Sculptra is an injectable filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for increasing the volume of the face. The active compound, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), is a biostimulant that plumps by stimulating your own collagen. Because of its ability to stimulate your own tissue and increase collagen synthesis, Sculptra adds more volume per syringe than other cosmetic fillers like Juvederm or Voluma.
 
Sculptra is a cosmetic injectable filler that is used most commonly used for adding volume to the face to make the face appear more youthful and full. Plastic surgeons and their patients are increasingly aware that the same volume enhancement can be performed in the butt in patients that don’t have enough fat to offer.

FAQs About Sculptra

Sculptra is an FDA approved injectable filler made from poly-L-lactic acid. What sets it apart from other facial fillers is its classification s as a bio-stimulant which has the ability to stimulate tissue to increase collagen synthesis. 

Sculptra or fat are the best options to increase the size of the butt.

A surgical butt lift can be preformed in cases where adding volume with Sculptra or fat does not effectively reduce the sagging.

Given the amount of volume needed to augment the butt, other fillers that do not stimulate collagen and are packaged and sold per syringe do not work well.

On average, Sculptra lasts 2-3 years after the first series of treatments. With regular annual maintenance injections the results can be maintained.

With annual touch up injections, the results achieved with Sculptra can be maintained.

The cost can vary among providers and different geographical locations. On average the cost per vial is $800-$1000 with anywhere from 10-20 vials typically needed at the initial sessions depending on the desired volume and 1-2 vials for annual maintenance.

An internet search can be a good way to locate plastic surgeons in your area. Once you have found a list of surgeons it is very important to narrow the list based on which surgeons are Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. From there, examine their photos to assess their artistic sense and read reviews and testimonials that will give you insight to their patient satisfaction. 

Start with google reviews or word of mouth to learn more about experiences patients have had. A consult with a surgeon can then provide the opportunity to see how you feel with their demeanor and professionalism.
