In today’s culture, men and women look forward to achieving a thin and hourglass body. However, we’re getting away from that way of thinking and learning that curvy is beautiful. Even so, the buttocks are the body part that most people want to change.
If you want bigger, lifted buttocks, going to the gym can take years to get what you want. Even if you work out and lift weights for years, your body may not be able to give you the results you want.
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is one of the most popular ways to improve your backside through cosmetic surgery. But what about Sculptra? Eventually, this dermal filler that the FDA approved was only used to add volume to the cheeks and other parts of the face.
But Sculptra has also been a good option for keeping those glutes up and high! Now, the question is, which one is better? Check out this blog post with us here at Premier Med Spa and see who can do the most!
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
The BBL is a two-step procedure that uses fat transfer to change the size and shape of the buttocks. Liposuction removes fat from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs.
Then, this fat is injected into the buttocks to give them more shape and volume. Depending on the look you want, this process can take anywhere from one to four hours. Compared to getting implants, the BBL gives you great natural results.
But this procedure has some adverse side effects. There are always risks after surgery, no matter what it is. Some of these are:
- A lot of pain and suffering
- Fat embolism
- Problems with the heart and lungs
After your surgery, you will need much time to rest and get better. Depending on the person and the type of surgery, it can take anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks to get better after surgery.
During this time, you can’t sit or sleep on your back for the first two weeks. At least for the first week, you can’t do anything physical. By week two, you can slowly start returning to your routine. This doesn’t include exercise because you can’t do that for the first 6–8 weeks.
You are also told to take at least two weeks off work, making someone think twice about getting this done. Also, you shouldn’t stretch the area around your buttocks for the first three weeks after the surgery.
Due to the stitches and the time it takes to heal, you can’t put the area underwater for the first four weeks. Recovery is known to be hard on the body, which is why many women look for less invasive options.
What About Sculptra?
The Sculptra is an alternative to surgery that adds volume and lifts the buttocks without cutting them. Sculptra is a type of filler that encourages your skin to make more of its collagen.
This helps restore the structure and add volume to areas that have lost them. This procedure fills the buttocks by getting your body’s collagen to grow back. The results are long-lasting and look natural.
When Sculptra is done, a poly-lactic acid-based filler is injected into the back to add volume. Sculptra might not be for you if you want to add a lot of volume and completely change the shape of your body. It looks more natural and can last between 5 and 7 years.
Some of the things that Sculptra does well are:
- Fix buttocks that look flat or saggy.
- Shape and circle the buttocks
- Get rid of bumps and cellulite
- Restore lost volume
One of the best things about getting a butt lift with Sculptra is that you don’t have to take time off. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and there may be some minor bruises where the injections are given. Most doctors say you should get three Sculptra treatments every four weeks for the best results.
Sculptra at Premier Med Spa
At Premier Med Spa, our Sculptra treatment is an injectable dermal filler to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin by boosting collagen production and bringing back fullness. As we said, Sculptra is made of a biodegradable molecule called poly-L-lactic acid.
Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), the main ingredient in Sculptra, fix your skin’s underlying structure, help rebuild collagen, and reduce facial wrinkles. The body takes in PLLA on its own and has been used to make stitches that dissolve.
Sculptra Aesthetics has no human or animal parts and is safe for people with allergies. After Sculptra Aesthetic underwent a lot of clinical testing, the FDA approved it for cosmetic use in 2009.
The procedure is done in a doctor’s office, and the number of Sculptra injections you need depends on your needs. Most people need at least three treatment sessions to reach their goals over a few months.
Also, the number of injections a person needs and how long they have to wait between them vary from person to person. The infusion itself takes about 30 minutes.
Sculptra is an excellent choice to look younger without looking too fake. Each treatment goes deep into the dermis; over time, Sculptra causes the body to make more collagen to replace what it has lost due to aging.
It also works on smile lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles on the chin that make you look and feel older. Sculptra can also be mixed with other dermal fillers to give you fullness immediately.
Which Procedure Should You Choose?
There are a few things to consider when deciding between the Brazilian Butt Lift and Sculptra to make your behind look better. The BBL could be your choice if you want a lot of volume and a slimmer look all over.
But Sculptra is the best choice if you want natural, long-lasting results without having to take time off and heal. We suggest talking to your aesthetician about Sculptra Aesthetic treatments to get the best advice possible.
For instance, Sculptra doesn’t hurt, and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately after treatment. Call us today for an appointment. Explore our other services like Botox, IV Therapy, Laser Genesis, and other special offers.
