A Non-Surgical Butt Lift?! It’s Possible with Sculptra!
Lift your booty without the downtime and risks of surgery!

What is a non-surgical butt lift?
As we age, fat pockets get lost and redistributed throughout the body. This not only occurs in the facial region, but the buttocks region as well. Loss of gluteal muscle and fat is secondary to weight loss, aging, and genetic predisposition. With Sculptra aesthetic, deep collagen growth is built up in the gluteal region to add volume and lift the buttocks for a smoother, rounder appearance.
How does Sculptra lift the butt?
Sculptra is an injectable filler that stimulates collagen growth in the skin. Sculptra is typically used in the face to help re-volumize, but recently it has been used to add volume to the buttocks which can improve the appearance of cellulite, skin texture, and crepiness.
Who is a candidate for a non-surgical butt lift?
- Clients who are not candidates for a surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or fat transfer procedure due to low body fat.
- Clients who are looking for a less invasive approach to a surgical lift of the buttocks.
- Clients who have volume loss in the upper buttocks, lack of lower buttocks fullness, or sides of the hips that need volume (aka hip dips).
How much does a non-surgical butt lift cost?
The cost will vary from person to person depending on the degree of volume loss. A butt lift with Sculptra can require anywhere from 18-30 vials (this includes both buttock cheeks) over 2-4 treatments every 6 to 8 weeks. You will need to consult with a provider to determine the number of vials you will need for optimal results.

What to expect pre-procedure?
It is recommended to avoid any blood thinning products 5-7 days prior to treatments to reduce the risk of bruising. This includes ibuprofen, aspirin, vitamin D, vitamin E, and Fish oils. It is also recommended to avoid drinking alcohol 3 days before. Some clients take arnica tablets a couple of days before the treatment to prevent risk of bruising.
For your first visit to Couture Med Spa, you will have paperwork to fill out beforehand which will include a medical history and consents for treatment. You will get our standard new client tour and consultation of the facility and services. You will then have a consultation with the provider to determine your treatment plan.
What to expect during the procedure?
Sculptra is not painful. You may feel some mild discomfort with the lidocaine injections, but the Sculptra injection is performed with a soft tip cannula which adds to the comfort of the treatment and allows for less risk of side effects such as swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
What to expect post procedure?
There is minimal downtime with Sculptra injections. You may experience some mild soreness after the treatment. You may also have some redness, bruising, swelling, firmness, lumps, or bumps at the injection sites. You will have swelling from the water injections post treatment which will decrease after 2 days. It is very important to perform massages on the treated area to avoid collagen lumps from developing. You must massage the area for 5 days, 5 times a day, for 5 minutes at a time.
When will I start seeing results?
You will begin seeing results around 3 months after your first injections and collagen will continue to grow in the treated area for up to 6 months after your last injection.
How long will the results last?
Sculptra in the buttock can last from 2-5 years. To keep the fullness and longevity of the product, an annual touch up with 2-4 vials is recommended. This may vary from person to person and your plan will be discussed with your provider during your consultation.
