Lifted and rounded buttocks are extremely sought-after, and though exercise can help improve the appearance of the buttocks, many people are unsatisfied with the look they can achieve through exercise alone. However, many people are also hesitant to have surgery to achieve the buttocks they want, whether they want to avoid downtime or are unsure about making permanent changes. For these patients, a Sculptra butt lift is often the best solution. Dr. Ourian now provides the best Sculptra butt lift that Beverly Hills has to offer.
A Sculptra butt lift is a minimally invasive option for enhancing your buttocks and creating a lifted, curvier appearance. Sculptra is a long-lasting type of dermal filler which encourages collagen production through the active ingredient poly-L-lactic acid. Collagen is a protein which gives the skin its structure and shape, so injecting Sculptra into the buttocks augments the area, adding more volume and creating a round, curved shape.

Before your Beverly Hills Sculptra butt lift, you should be in good overall health, and at a stable and healthy weight. You should also have realistic expectations for the procedure and your results, which Dr. Ourian will help explain. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Ourian will evaluate your health and goals for the procedure to determine whether a Sculptra butt lift is the best option for you.
Our Los Angeles Sculptra butt lift procedure is performed in the office, and sedation or anesthesia is not necessary. During your procedure, you will lay comfortably on your stomach. Before performing the injections, Dr. Ourian will sterilize the treatment area, and may utilize a topical anesthetic according to your needs and preference. Following these steps, Sculptra is injected into the dermal layers to fill out the area just below the buttocks. Injections take about an hour to complete. It may be necessary to then massage the treatment area to ensure even distribution of the product. You may receive a bandage over the area following Sculptra injections. As soon as the procedure is complete, you are free to drive yourself home and go about your normal routine if you choose.
Dr. Ourian will develop and explain a custom treatment plan for your Sculptra butt lift during your consultation appointment.
You will see a volume increase immediately after your injections due to the water which is used to suspend Sculptra particles for injection. This water is naturally absorbed by the body within a day or two. Some swelling and redness at the injection site is normal. You may be asked to massage the treatment area for about 5 days following your injections to ensure that the Sculptra is evenly distributed. Sculptra butt lift requires no downtime, but you should avoid exercise or drinking alcohol for about 24 hours after the procedure. Results appear gradually and improve over the course of a few months as collagen production takes place, and are usually seen about 4-6 months after the procedure.
What Procedures Can I Combine With Sculptra Butt Lift
Many Sculptra butt lift patients are interested in the procedure because it is a non-surgical option. For this reason, they may also be interested in other non-surgical MedSpa procedures. For example, dermal fillers can be used to augment other areas such as the lips or for a non-surgical rhinoplasty. Most dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid and include options such as Juvéderm or Restylane. Kybella is another injectable treatment which is available, and reduces fat cells below the chin to remove the appearance of a “double chin.”
Some patients also choose Sculptra butt lift to counteract the sagging and volume loss that can occur in the body as a sign of aging. These patients may also be interested in procedures such as a breast lift, which addresses sagging or drooping breasts and returns them to a higher, more youthful position. Patients facing loose, excess skin due to aging or weight fluctuation may also benefit from a body lift, arm lift, or thigh lift in addition to a Sculptra butt lift, depending on the severity of their loose skin. Unlike the Sculptra butt lift, these are surgical procedures.
The final cost of your Sculptra butt lift will vary according to several factors, the amount of Sculptra product that is needed for the procedure. Sculptra injections are typically priced per unit of product used. Dr. Ourian’s patient concierge will give you a more accurate cost for your Sculptra butt lift after your consultation.
