As a truly non-surgical procedure, the Sculptra Butt Lift has revolutionized the way butt lift procedures are performed throughout Los Angeles and Beverly Hills and across the nation. With Rejuvalife’s Brazilian Butt Lift in Beverly Hills, liposuction is required in order to gather the fat that is harvested and transferred to the buttocks. This requires some downtime. However, Sculptra is a great option for those who desire a fuller and shapelier buttocks enhancement but have been unable to achieve it because there is not enough fat. With the years of skill and experience Dr. Berger has in the cosmetic and plastic surgery field, he performs arguably the best sculptra butt lift Los Angeles has to offer.
What is a Sculptra Butt Lift?
Sculptra Butt Lift is a special product that is used to thicken the skin and stimulate collagen growth using micro-invasive injections just below the skin. It is different than a fat graft, and there is no down time required. To really enhance the buttocks, both the “Brazilian” Butt Lift procedure and the Sculptra Butt Lift can be combined with the “Silhouette Butt Lift” to further optimize the results. Dr. Berger is one of a few cosmetic surgeons performing the Silhouette Butt lift. For our Los Angeles patients with little fat, this makes Sculptra Butt Lift procedures a welcome, convenient, and effective option for increasing the volume of the buttocks.
It can be difficult to change the size and shape of the buttocks using diet or exercise. In general, dieting cannot “target” specific areas of the body. Also, increasing the muscle mass of the rear end with squats or lunges can be time consuming and frustrating. That’s why so many patients choose to bring proportion, shape, and enhancement to their body through the use of butt lift procedures. A butt lift can make your buttocks fuller and rounder, helping you feel more confident and sexy.
There are several distinct benefits of Sculptra Butt Lift procedures instead of a Brazilian Butt Lift, including the following:
- No anesthetic injections are necessary
- Wonderful for lean patients desiring a fuller, shapelier behind
- Short recovery time
- Subtle, natural looking results
- Limited interruption to your daily life
- Procedure can be accomplished in as little as 30 minutes
- Provides a subtle lift and volume to the buttocks area
How Much Does Sculptra Butt Lift Cost in Beverly Hills, CA?
The average cost of a Sculptra Butt Lift at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute ranges between $2,400 and $13,000 depending on the amount of product needed to help the patient achieve their desired results. Dr. Berger will discuss the details of your treatment including the cost at the time of your one-on-one consultation. For your convenience, we offer multiple financing options to keep your treatments as affordable as possible.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Sculptra Butt Lift?
If you want a larger rear end but you don’t have enough fat or want to undergo a procedure, then it’s very possible you’re a good candidate for a Sculptra butt lift in Los Angeles. In general, we look for candidates that will benefit from the procedure and who are not predisposed to any adverse complications. Because Sculptra is a widely used dermal collagen stimulator, many candidates will be a good fit for the Sculptra Butt Lift. In general, we find that at least some of the following qualities make the best Sculptra Butt Lift candidates:
- A desire to increase the volume, size or roundness of the buttocks without undergoing a procedure or surgery
- A desire to increase the volume, size and shape of the buttocks, but do not have enough fat to undergo a Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt lift)
- A desire to get results without a minimally invasive procedure such as Fat Transfer or “Silhouette Butt Lift” (whether due to personal preference or medical predisposition)
- A desire for long term but not permanent results (the results will last up to two years)
- A desire to bring proportion and contouring to the buttocks area
- A desire to bring a subtle lift to the buttocks area
- Realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish
- A relatively stable weight
- Patience! Patience! Patience! Sculptra is progressive and builds over time.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Happens During a Sculptra Butt Lift Consultation?
During your consultation with Dr. Berger, you will discuss your goals and desired final results, as well as the optimal way to achieve those results. Dr. Berger will examine your body shape and discuss your expectations and will be able to best determine the amount of Sculptra product that will be needed and the number of treatments for best results. Every person is different, it is recommended a minimum of 2 -3 sessions, though you may need more after 3 sessions if you are not satisfied with the result at that point. Every person is different and we cannot guarantee the outcome or time it will take to get to the desired result.
During your consultation, you should be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any medications you are currently taking as well as recent tobacco use. All of our consultations are completely confidential in order to ensure the patient is fully informed. The consultation fee for Sculptra Butt Lift is $150, and is applied to the cost of the procedure.
What Happens During a Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure?
During a Sculptra Butt Lift procedure, Dr. Berger will mark the patient either standing or lying down. The patient will then usually lie flat on his or her stomach. Dr. Berger will then apply a topical anesthetic or numbing agent to minimize any discomfort. Once the anesthetic takes effect, Dr. Berger will begin injecting the Sculptra into the identified targeted areas. It takes several injections to get the Sculptra stimulator adequately distributed into the buttocks treatment area(s).
In order to get the best results possible, a Sculptra Butt Lift usually requires many vials of product and could need several sessions. These sessions are generally spaced roughly three to twelve weeks apart, depending on the schedule and preferences of the patient. However, each session usually lasts about sixty minutes, so patients can conveniently fit in treatments around their busy schedules.
Sculptra Butt Lift Recovery and Results
There is no recovery time following the Sculptra Butt Lift procedure. There may be some bruising after your procedure which should dissipate within two to three weeks. Every patient receives an individualized recovery plan from Dr. Berger that is designed to minimize any discomfort and maximize your results.
Once the treatment plan is complete, patients are free to experience their stunning and wonderful Sculptra Butt Lift results. Most patients will see a subtle but significant lift of the buttocks after their first or second injection session, making the backside appear more youthful, contoured, and proportionate to the rest of the body. Our Beverly Hills and Los Angeles Sculptra Butt Lift patients are consistently thrilled with their results, telling us that they experience a boost in self-esteem, a rush of confidence, and even an increase in quality of life.
How is a Sculptra Butt Lift Different from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Perhaps the most striking difference between the Sculptra Butt Lift and the Brazilian Butt Lift is that Sculptra is a non-surgical procedure and there is no down time involved. Sculptra Butt Lift requires only simple and painless injections under the skin during a quick 30-minute treatment. It is a great alternative to the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure for leaner patients that don’t have quite enough extra fat to transfer. Sculptra works over time, gradually thickening the skin up to four times, thereby adding a visible volume increasing effect to the buttocks area.
Since the early 2010s, there has perhaps been no procedure that has grown at the phenomenal rate of the Brazilian Butt Lift, largely due to Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and JLo. The fact that this procedure that emulates the Brazilian Butt Lift for leaner patients should, perhaps, not be surprising.
At their core, Brazilian Butt Lift and Sculptra Butt Lift are designed to do two different things. A Brazilian Butt Lift can generate enhanced effects, where as a Sculptra Butt Lift can create a subtle but important impact. As such, the two procedures use different approaches and Sculptra is used if someone has inadequate fat to transfer yet wants to add volume to the butt area.
During a Brazilian Butt Lift, the first step is liposuction. Fat is removed from a target area with excess fat. The removed fat is then injected into the buttocks. The results are long lasting and, often, quite bold.
A Sculptra Butt Lift does not require liposuction because the injected material is the dermal collagen stimulator rather than a fat graft. The advantage here is that there is no need for even minimally invasive surgery, and therefore no anesthetic is required. (Patients are sometimes given a topical numbing agent to combat any discomfort.) The results tend to be gradual and subtle, with no recovery needed. Sculptra requires several treatments generally one month apart and results improve over time. The results will generally last two to three years. This makes Sculptra Butt Lift ideal for patients who want natural results, don’t have time for recovery, or don’t have areas of fat large enough to perform liposuction.
How many vials are needed to get a buttock augmentation with Sculptra?
The number of vials needed is dependent on several factors including, the size of the area to be augmented, the amount of augmentation desired, the speed of which the patient wishes to see their desires, and budget. The average is 4 vials per treatment for a buttocks augmentation and the moderate average is 10 vials pre treatment.
How often do I need to get the injections?
Treatments need to be spaced a minimum of 1-3 months apart depending on patients own situation and budget.
What is Sculptra?
