Your Complete Guide to the Sculptra BBL

Healthy,Lifestyle,Diet,And,Fitness.,Beautiful,Slim,Woman's,Body.,Perfect The Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, is an in-demand cosmetic procedure that uses fat transfer techniques to add fullness to a person’s buttocks. It is best known for achieving dramatic results. However, the surgery is invasive and relatively risky. On top of that, the candidacy requirements can be hard to meet with thinner patients not having enough fat in other parts of their body to augment their buttocks.

Fortunately, there is a non-surgical, injectable BBL alternative. At Miami Skin & Vein, experienced injector Dr. Shaun Patel uses the cosmetic injectable Sculptra® Aesthetic to give patients the lifted, shapely derriere they desire.

The Sculptra Butt Lift: What Is Sculptra BBL?

Developed initially to restore the gentle contours of the face, Sculptra’s proven collagen-generating dermal filler is now Miami’s most popular technique to improve your buttocks’ appearance naturally.

The Sculptra BBL is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical take on the classic butt enhancement procedure. Unlike a traditional BBL or a skinny BBL, this treatment doesn’t require incisions or significant downtime. Instead, it relies on superficial injections of a safe and long-lasting FDA-approved filler to define the gluteal region, ultimately enhancing the shape and size of your buttocks.

Sculptra is a popular injectable that works with your body to stimulate collagen production. Originally designed to restore facial volume, this filler has recently been used to enhance different areas of the body. When injected into the buttocks, Sculptra can also tighten and smooth the overlying skin.

The benefits you can expect to experience from your Sculptra BBL include:

  • Relatively quick in-office treatment sessions
  • No anesthesia required
  • No downtime or lengthy recovery period
  • Natural-looking results
  • A lower risk of side effects compared to surgical butt enhancement

Non-Surgical Butt Enhancement Treatment: How It Works

Dr. Patel will begin by evaluating the treatment area and making temporary guide marks. Next, he will apply a topical numbing agent or add lidocaine to the Sculptra formula for your comfort. Using a microcannula, he will then place superficial injections of filler into the areas where you want to add volume.

How Many Vials of Sculptra Do You Need for a BBL?

There are various factors that determine the number of vials required for a Sculptra BBL:

  • Size of the buttocks
  • Level of correction desired
  • Skin condition
  • Presence of cellulite
  • Need for support
  • Desired results

Typically, six to ten vials of Sculptra are used during your first visit. During a session, Dr. Patel typically uses three to five vials of Sculptra for each side of the buttocks.

How Many Sessions for Sculptra Butt Lift?

The number of Sculptra sessions required for the buttocks will vary based on the desired volume increase and the specific areas that have been treated. Our recommended treatment plan consists of three sessions, with each session spaced at least four weeks apart to ensure proper distribution of the filler. During each session, there may be a range of three to five injections administered on each side of the buttocks, resulting in a total of 18 to 40 injections.

How Long Will It Take to See Sculptra BBL Results?

Sculptra works gradually. It can take between a few weeks to several months to notice a significant change. Your results will improve over time due to increased collagen stimulated by the injectable.

Changes to your buttocks may take approximately six weeks from treatment to provide noticeable results. Since Sculptra BBL depends on your body’s own immune response to generate collagen, individual results will vary.

How Long Does Sculptra BBL Last?

Your final outcome will last for roughly two years without maintenance sessions. Dr. Patel recommends that patients who want to increase the longevity of their results visit our practice once a year for follow-up injections. With regular follow-up visits, you can maintain the perfect volume and shape of your behind almost indefinitely.

How Much Is Sculptra for Buttocks Treatment?

On a national average, the cost of a Sculptra treatment session typically falls between $700 and $1,000 per vial. The number of injections administered during a treatment session depends on the condition of the skin and the number of areas being treated. During a treatment session, some patients may only need 1-3 syringes.

Is Sculptra Worth It for BBL?

Our Miami Sculptra BBL will have you looking great and feeling confident:

  • At the beach in your bikini
  • At the club in your LBD
  • Taking selfies in your favorite pair of shorts
  • Strolling around in your fully-fitting jeans
  • Spending tender moments with your special someone

Ideal Candidates for Buttock Dermal Fillers

The Sculptra butt lift is appropriate for most men and women who want a fuller backside. It is an excellent option for individuals who would prefer a minimally invasive treatment over surgery. Additionally, it is great for thinner patients who don’t have the excess fat that a traditional BBL requires for transfer.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Patel, he will help you determine if this treatment is right for you. Expect to discuss the result you’d like to achieve and your relevant medical history.
