Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, with different curves, contours and edges. It’s a little cliché to say that everyone is special in their own way, but it is the truth. Our bodies all have their unique features, angles and forms, which come together to create a wholly unique individual. Regardless of your body type, curves and other aspects of appearance, you should feel confident in yourself and have a positive self-image.
However, this is easier said than done. It’s hard to stay positive about your body when you’re following celebrity news and looking at those magazine cover models, with their pristine skin, immaculate features and those curves that are so popular nowadays. And if you feel like you need a little extra curvature in all the right places, there are cosmetic treatments that can help you. One such treatment is the Sculptra butt lift. Which is why we’re covering many of the treatments most pertinent questions, from how it’s performed to the average Sculptra butt lift cost.
And this is all thanks to MiracleFace MedSpa, the Manhattan clinic that helped get the insider knowledge we need to answer the most frequently asked questions about Sculptra. If you’ve ever thought about getting a little more curvy, now is your chance to learn a little more about its many benefits.
1. What results can you expect?
Our body has natural curvature, such as around the hips, the chest, shoulders and especially the buttocks. Full posteriors have been an aesthetically pleasing physical feature for centuries, but recently they’ve gotten a lot more attention. And this is exactly what Sculptra focuses on.
There are a lot of body contouring and butt lifting treatments out there, but few will get you the attractive, yet natural-looking results that Sculptra can deliver. The key lies in not just making the butt look bigger, but also giving it full shape which naturally full posteriors have. This way, you have a visibly curvier figure, but it doesn’t look unnatural or artificial.
2. What’s the procedure like?
The Sculptra butt lift is a minimally-invasive procedure. This means there’s going to be very little damage done to your body throughout the treatment. And by “damage”, we mean incisions or cuts that are made into the skin. In the case of Sculptra, there are no cuts or incisions whatsoever, since the treatment relies entirely on injections.
Unlike other kinds of cosmetic treatments or surgeries, with Sculptra, you won’t have to worry about a complicated procedure, with stitches and scars. It only takes a few injections, which are quite small, and the worst impact they leave on your body are very light bruising, which naturally disappears by itself.
3. How many injections will I need?
This question doesn’t really have one specific answer, as it mostly depends on the kind of results you’re looking for, as well as your body type. Injections aren’t as important in the case of Sculptra, as the number of sessions you’ll need to get completely treated and see the final outcome.
Patients getting treated with Sculptra will usually require 3 sessions, spanned across several months. While this seems like a bit of a wait, there’s a very important reason behind it. You don’t want to overwork your body. Sure, we’re all built to last and our body can handle a lot of pressure, but pushing it to the brink could mean jeopardizing the results and can even be dangerous.
You need to give your body enough time to recover between each session not only for your own health and safety, but also for the results to look as perfect as possible.
4. When will I see the results?
Much like with the previous question, this also varies from person to person, so there isn’t one single answer for everyone. Typically, you’ll see almost no difference a few days after the treatment is finished. This is because Sculptra works very gradually.
You don’t immediately have greater curvature, but it sets in over time. You’re just going to have to bear with it and watch as your curves become more and more accentuated, as the Sculptra compound progressively comes closer to its final position and form.
5. How long do the results last?
But all that wait isn’t for nothing. The results of the Sculptra treatment become more and more visible over time and one day you’ll look in the mirror and see you have the curves you’ve been craving for a long time.
And best of all: the results last for a very long time. Typically, a Sculptra treatment is enough to last you two to four years. With those three visits to the clinic, you have natural and attractive looking curves for years to come and won’t have to worry about visiting the clinic or making appointments.
- What is the average Sculptra butt lift cost?
This mostly depends on where you live. As with any other service out there, the price will be different based on your local area. But generally, you can expect the price for the entire Sculptra treatment to be in the thousands. This may seem expensive at first, but take into account that Sculptra, for many people, is a one time investment for several years at a time.
Once you’re treated with it, you won’t need to worry about paying for another treatment for years to come. This makes the price a lot more reasonable than it initially seems. In NYC alone, there are tons of people who’ve been treated and the price is rarely a problem for most patients from average income households.
