Sculptra Butt Lift vs. Brazilian Butt Lift: Which Butt Augmentation Option is Best?

The butt is one of the most difficult areas on your body to tone, especially for women. This is partly because the hips and upper legs are common areas for body fat storage. This makes it tough to see the muscles that are developing from your workout efforts. So if you have a saggy or flat butt, exercise alone will not necessarily give you the shapely bottom that you desire.

The good news is that there are possible solutions to your butt shaping problems, the Sculptra Butt Lift and the Brazilian Butt Lift. Let’s take a look at each one to see which may be best for you.

Sculptra Treatments 

Sculptra treatments are a non-surgical procedure in which special fillers are injected under the skin to stimulate collagen production and enhance the shape of the buttocks.This treatment takes approximately 60 minutes and there is no downtime.

The injections are delivered deep into the dermis. Not only are they delivering the filler to enhance the shape and volume of your butt immediately, but they are also stimulating the growth of new collagen so that you will notice continued improvements in the months to follow.  

Patients usually need a series of 3 or 4 treatments that are spaced 2 or 3 months apart. While some results will be noticeable immediately, the full results will become visible in 3-6 months after the treatments have all been completed. Because the results are subtle and get better over time as new collagen is being produced, no one will ever know that you’ve had Sculptra treatments done, The results will be very natural looking.

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a two-part procedure that will deliver more dramatic results than the Sculptra Lift. In the first part of the procedure, liposuction is done to remove donor fat from another area of the patient’s body such as the thighs, abs, or hips. Once the donor fat is removed, it is purified and prepared for injection. The second part of the procedure involves injecting the donor fat back into the patient’s butt to create the fullness and shape that they desire.

The Brazilian Butt Lift gives more dramatic results but has a two or more week recovery time. During this time, patients are instructed to sleep on their stomachs and to be very careful how they sit or stand and how long they sit or stand. Aside from a longer recovery, some patients cannot choose the BBL if they have no donor fat that can be taken from other areas of their body.

Which Option is Best: Sculptra or BBL?

While both procedures have their merits, we feel that the Sculptra Butt Lift is the ideal option for most patients for the following reasons:

  1. Sculptra is non-surgical so there are no risks of infections from surgical incisions.
  2. Sculptra is non-invasive and has no downtime while BBL involves a recovery time of two weeks (minimum).
  3. Sculptra is more subtle and more natural looking so people won’t be able to tell that you’ve had work done.
  4. Sculptra is not permanent so if you are not pleased with the results or if trends change and you no longer desire a full bottom, you can eventually return to the bottom you started with.

The best way to decide which procedure is right for you is to have an in-office consultation with the experts at Skinatomy Laser Clinic.
