Is Sculptra BBL Safe?

Butt lift procedures have become an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment in recent years. With celebrities like the Kardashians leading the way, the demand for butt lifts is growing. With new options entering the market regularly, you can easily reach the figure of your dreams.

Among these is Sculptra BBL, a non-invasive and non-surgical approach to this desired look. Thanks to the injectable procedure, Sculptra is a much safer alternative than a surgical BBL  with minimal to no downtime and results from your own collagen stimulation that lasts around two or more years.

What Is a Non-Surgical Butt Lift and Why Is It Safer?

A traditional Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery uses fat transfer through liposuction which removes unwanted or excess fat from other areas of the body and is then injected into the buttocks for augmentation. These procedures are more dangerous as some inexperienced surgeons are responding to the demand without understanding how to do it properly. More complications are involved with a BBL surgery including a fat embolism which can cause cardiac or pulmonary complications and even death. The recovery is very extensive and you have to avoid sleeping on your backside or sitting on your buttocks for at least 6 weeks post-surgery.

With a non-surgical approach, these risks are eliminated. Reliable injections, such as Sculptra Aesthetic, are used to enhance the shape utilizing our own collagen stimulation instead of pulling fat from other body areas for enhancement. There is no downtime associated with a Sculptra aesthetic BBL and the recovery is mild with minimal bruising and mild tenderness and requires no limitations on physical activity or other daily activities!

 

What to Expect During a Sculptra Brazilian Butt Lift

Specifically, Sculptra is an FDA-approved poly-L-lactic acid that works naturally in the body to encourage collagen production. As we age, collagen is lost, resulting in looser skin. Once Sculptra is injected into the buttocks, it will replace lost collagen and reinforce the skin’s structure.

These injections are placed below the skin’s surface to re-volumize certain areas such as hip dips and enhance your natural curve and body type. Your desired results and current shape determine the injection sites and the number of injections. An average treatment regimen includes three injections spaced about a month apart. The specialists at Face Forward Aesthetics will work with you to create your personal timeline.

Following the procedure, there is little to no recovery time and you can immediately return to your daily activities. Your results will begin to show after a few weeks with peak results occurring around 6 months and can last up to two years.

Sculptra BBL Benefits

In addition to Sculptra BBL’s safety advantages, it comes with several other benefits, including:

  • Quick procedure: A Sculptra BBL session can be completed in about one hour. You can schedule an appointment during your lunch break!
  • Short recovery: Besides some soreness at the injection sites and mild bruising, there is no need for recovery time in the hospital or at home.
  • Natural results: Since Sculptra Aesthetic restores and builds your own natural collagen your results will look and feel like a natural part of your body.
