Sculptra for a Brazillian Butt Lift?
Sculptra for a Brazilian butt lift, also known as BBL, is a popular, noninvasive, and versatile procedure to add more shape and volume to the buttocks. A Sculptra Brazilian butt lift is a great way to enhance a patient’s natural curves using a dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth in the skin. Sculptra provides immediate and long-lasting results and since Sculptra works to promote collagen production within the skin, the skin is able to thicken and improve volume over time! Additionally, this treatment prevents scarring and has minimal downtime which makes it a fantastic alternative to surgical intervention.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra® is the only FDA approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) filler that allows patients to build longer lasting volume gradually over time. Poly-L-Lactic Acid is an injectable, biocompatible formula made up of poly-L-lactic acid microparticles, a polymer of the alpha-hydroxy-acid family that is safely absorbed and eliminated by the body.
When Sculptra is injected into the buttocks, fullness is added, and the quality of skin improves through increased collagen production. Collagen is a natural substance made within the skin that helps to hold up and retain skin shape. As you age, your skin’s natural collagen levels diminish, leading to drooping and sagging of the skin. Sculptra® helps to promote collagen production, which helps the skin appear healthier and function better. Sculptra® is an injectable product that requires no heavy sedation, incisions, downtime, or scarring. A topical anesthetic will be used alongside treatment to ensure patient comfort.
What should I expect from my Sculptra Braziliant Butt Lift treatment?
Sculptra® provides immediate and long-lasting results for up to two to three years. Since Sculptra® works to promote collagen production within the skin, the skin is able to thicken and improve volume over time. The results for a Sculptra Brazilian but lift will get better over the following weeks after the procedure as the body absorbs the filler and boosts collagen levels. While the best results will be seen after a few weeks, many patients return to get multiple Sculptra® treatments to ensure the best outcome. The average patient receives about three treatment sessions over a few months to achieve the best results. The buttocks can maintain the pronounced and well-proportioned volumizing effects of Sculptra with re-application of injections. This treatment prevents scarring and does not require a long recovery period serving as a fantastic alternative to surgical intervention. Once you achieve your final results, they can be long-lasting.
Who is a good candidate for Sculptra® Brazilian butt lift ?

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Your blood will be drawn and spun down in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the valuable platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is then injected into the scalp near the areas with hair loss. We use a Zimmer chiller to help numb the scalp before you are injected which makes the treatment more comfortable. Your injector will massage the scalp to help disburse the PRP. There is no downtime and no one will be able to see that you've had a treatment. Patients who benefit the most from PRP therapy undergo a series of treatments at regular intervals to maintain the positive effects of the plasma growth factors.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The initial treatment is three sessions, one month apart. Then approximately two maintenance sessions per year are needed to maintain your results. Many of the before and afters on this page show patients who have already entered their maintenance phase.
