The hottest trend this year is in non-surgical butt lifts. We use the combination of the Ultherapy® Butt-Lift and Sculptra® Butt-Lift, however, people may choose to use one or the other separately. Ultherapy® focuses on tightening while Sculptra® focuses on augmentation through plumping up the buttocks for a fuller shape. In one visit we can non-surgically create lifting AND plumping to the buttocks. Multiple visits may be needed for enhanced plumping effects depending on the individual’s needs.
FACE offers a few different options for non-surgical butt lifts:
Ultherapy® is the only non-surgical treatment FDA-approved to lift the face, neck, and chest. It is also used off-label on the body the way BOTOX® Cosmetic is used in many off label indications. The Ultherapy® Butt Lift is a one time, no downtime procedure using focused ultrasound to lift the muscle and stimulate your body’s own collagen and elasticity resulting in a lift over the course of 90 days, that lasts a year.
The Sculptra® Butt Lift is the use of the Sculptra® injectable in the buttocks to restore lost volume, plump up the flatness, for a more youthful full appearance. Sculptra® is the injectable of choice for non-surgical gluteal plumping that lasts 2 years.
Sculptra® is best suited to this area because you can get a significant augmentation without using much product. Sculptra® is different in that it induces your own fresh collagen to grow around the product, from triggering an inflammatory response in your body, where hyaluronic acid-based fillers just pump more volume into your skin without the collagen stimulation. Sculptra® actually stimulates collagen in your skin for 2 years, and no other injectable can do that.
This is the combination of the Ultherapy® Butt Lift and Sculptra® Butt Lift. Ultherapy® focuses on tightening while Sculptra® focuses on augmentation through plumping up the buttocks for a more fuller shape. In one visit we can non-surgically create both lifting AND plumping to the buttocks.
Anyone who is looking to go without surgical intervention, such as the traditional Brazillian Butt Lift, is a candidate. To mimic the surgical procedure with non-surgical methods, The Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift is for those individuals who may have a more flat and sagging appearance in the buttocks, and desire a more toned, lifted, contoured and defined appearance to restore youth and shape. You could start this 30 days post-childbirth, and can definitely have it between pregnancies, as it is a subtle lift, and should be repeated yearly.
We use topical anesthetic for the Ultherapy® portion of the lift. Face should be a low pain level of 0-3 with an occasional spot being a 5-7, like on bony areas. On the buttocks, it’s a low pain scale from 2-3 with an occasional 5+, and overall being very tolerable.
The Ultherapy® Butt Lift takes about 90 minutes and The Sculptra® Butt Lift takes another 30-45 minutes. In-office time would be about 2.5 hours total if doing both the same day.
One Ultherapy session lasts a year. If you do it again in a year, you will get even more results as you have more “collagen in the bank” so to speak. Sculptra® injectable, if added, can take 1-3 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart and the effects can last 2+ years.
You will be slightly sore after. Some people are sore for days others for weeks, but very mild and only felt when touching. Exercise can be resumed the next day post-treatment.
There are 2 methods used for Butt Augmentation. The first is fat grafting (aka surgical ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’) where you take fat from other places through liposuction, and then put it into the buttocks. The downside many people don’t know is that if you are too thin to have fat harvested from liposuction, then you are not a candidate. The other surgical method is butt implants where you take actual implants and insert them into the buttocks. Both have more risks, downtime, and cost more money than its non-surgical alternative options.
The Ultherapy® Butt Lift ranges between $2500-3500 depending on the size of the area. To add Sculptra®, additional cost would be incurred depending on how many vials are used.
We are targeting both the muscle and the skin during the Ultherapy® Butt Lift, and just the skin on the Sculptra® Butt-Lift.
