Non-surgical butt augmentation is an increasingly popular procedure, which gives great results with minimal downtime. Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about the procedure.
What is non-surgical buttock augmentation?
Non-surgical buttock enhancement or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is done using injectables to create a new shape, fullness and lift to the butt. It is different from traditional, surgical buttock augmentation or enhancement, which is done with the use of implants placed into the buttocks or, as with Brazilian Butt Lift, fat is liposuctioned from various parts of the body and transferred
to the buttocks.
Does non-surgical buttock enhancement hurt?
The procedure involves the use of fine needles to inject the product and most people easily tolerate this.
How big of a buttock can you achieve?
If you’re looking for a really large buttock, you’re better to stick with fat grafting or buttock implants. However, non-surgical butt enhancement can give you a nice new shape with added volume or lift while also improving the texture of the skin.
How many injections will be needed? When will I start seeing results?
Generally, most people require three treatments approximately four to six weeks apart, and they start to notice the results after the second treatment. If after three treatments you are still looking for more volume to the buttock, you can continue with more treatments.
What is the recovery time?
The biggest benefit of the non-surgical Brazilian butt lift is that there is really no recovery time. You are able to resume your daily activities and go to the gym right after the treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results will typically last somewhere between one-and-a-half to two years. After this time, a single treatment will likely be required yearly to maintain the shape and volume.
What’s the most common product used in this procedure?
The most common product used for this procedure is a polylactic acid-based injectable treatment, otherwise known as SCULPTRA™. This product works by stimulating your body’s own collagen to reorganize and grow, giving you a new shape and improving the texture to the skin.
How much does it cost?
Generally, the treatment requires three treatments performed approximately four to six weeks apart. The typical treatment averages approximately $4,500.
