According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Americans spent over $13.5 billion on both surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic procedures for the first time on record in a single calendar year. With the growing popularity of aesthetic procedures, it’s no surprise that cosmetic and plastic surgeons are developing easier, less-invasive techniques. One non-surgical procedure that is being chosen more often is a butt lift using Sculptra fillers. This article is going to provide a brief overview of the procedure and benefits people can expect.
There are surgical procedures to give patients the butt lift they desire. The two main surgical procedures include either taking fat from somewhere else on the body and transferring it to the butt or taking implants and inserting them to give the patient a plumper behind.
However, like all surgical procedures, there are risks associated with these methods. Because of this, more patients are choosing instead to get a Sculptra filler.
Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that thickens skin and stimulates collagen growth. The filler contains microparticles of a bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester. Once these microparticles are injected into the rear, they allow rebuilt strands of the collagen protein to bring fullness to the treatment area.
As people age, their collagen production slows, leading to loose and sagging skin. So by introducing Sculptra, the collagen count goes back up naturally and allows the body to restore its shape on its own. While this filler is usually used for facial aesthetics, it’s becoming a more popular option for other parts of the body as well.
As the Sculptra works to stimulate collagen growth, it produces a subtle firmness in the area. Patients choose Sculptra to improve the shape and size of their bottoms without having to undergo surgery. This procedure can last for two to three years, although additional treatment sessions may be required to reach desired firmness.
Aside from the lasting results, there are many other benefits patients can reap from choosing Sculptra over other plastic surgery options. The procedure itself is very quick and it does not require a long recovery period. Additionally, it requires absolutely no incisions or sutures, so there will be no scars left behind.
Because many people avoid plastic surgery due to fear of incisions, high risks, and a long recovery time, they may be missing out on their dream derriere. But with Sculptra fillers, patients can get the results they want without having to undergo an invasive procedure.
