You can’t see your own derrière without looking in the mirror, but you want it to look its best just the same. So, what if it does not? Aging and weight loss can cause one's buttocks to sag. And anyone can have naturally flat or shapeless buttocks. Dimpled skin is common, too. Aren’t you happy to know there is something you can do to boost your butt without having surgery?
We’re talking about the Sculptra® Buttock Lift. Here are five things you should know about this procedure.
1. No Surgery Required!
Right away, Sculptra® is sounding like a great idea. Not everyone wants surgery, and that’s what you need for buttock implants or a Brazilian Butt Lift. Surgery is the best choice for some people, but it is expensive, it cause some discomfort from the procedure, it requires some downtime, and leaves small scars.
Sculptra® is an injectable dermal filler. You visit us here in our office, treatment takes an hour or less, you go on about your business. We use a topical anesthetic, so there is little to no pain involved. We also have Nitrous Oxide gas available to make the experience even more comfortable. You may have some initial swelling or bruising, but it will diminish over a few days.
2. More than Just Plumping
Where most dermal fillers are designed strictly to add volume, Sculptra® does more. Yes, it plumps strategically to create the improved lift and contouring you want, but it also stimulates your body’s own production of collagen. That works to tighten skin and improve its texture, and it means the results keep on improving over time.
3. And Speaking of Results...
We won’t tell you that Sculptra® can do everything that a surgical procedure can do, but you can expect noticeable improvement. For many patients, it takes more than one session of injections to achieve the reshaping you want, but those results typically last about two to five years. After that, you can visit us for a touch-up as needed.
4. The Provider Makes the Difference
We always like to mention this, in case you’re looking to have a cosmetic enhancement procedure for the first time. Just because a medspa or clinic offers a particular option doesn’t mean that’s the best place to go. Injectables may seem simple, but in fact it takes precision and skill to know how to place the right amount of product in the right places to produce specific results.
We are proud that our Image Surgical Arts patients feel confident and comfortable coming to Dr. Brady Harris and our nurse practitioner, Kristen Torres for treatments such as Sculptra®. We know we’ve earned that trust, and we take that very seriously.
5. It’s Easy to Find Out More
At Image Surgical Arts, we want you to love the way your bottom looks – or at least like it a whole lot more. Firmer, rounder, lifted, smoother. So let’s talk about whether Sculptra® injections can give your buttocks the look you’re looking for “back there.” You can give us a call at 615-499-4224 or fill out this form to schedule a private in-person or virtual consultation with one of our expert medical staff.
