Sculptra Butt Lift

The Non-Surgical Sculptra Butt Lift or the Sculptra BBL. What is Sculptra? Sculptra is an FDA-cleared dermal filler used for treatment of volume loss. Made with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Sculptra replaces lost collagen and works well to reduce lost volume. PLLA stimulates the body’s own collagen production and is commonly used for volume restoration and skin rejuvenation. Sculptra is routinely known for its use for fat loss in the face (currently the only FDA-approved indication for Sculptra Aesthetic). Recently, an off-label application for use in the buttocks has become  popular with good results. What is the Sculptra Butt Lift or Sculptra BBL? The gold standard butt lift procedure is the Brazilian Butt Lift BBL.  Using liposuction to remove fat, and fat transfer to place fat in the buttocks, the BBL produces dramatic results.  However, not everyone has enough fat for the BBL nor do they desire to have a surgical procedure. The Sculptra BBL offers a non-surgical alternative that is office based without any downtime. Additionally, the Sculptra Butt Lift can help improve cellulite or dimpling and help with sagging skin. How does the Sculptra Butt Lift work? Its easy!  After discussing how many vials of sculptra you desire, your buttocks skin will be cleansed and treated with a numbing cream.  The doctor will then have you stand up to take some photos and perform some markings.  The markings will help to guide the injections to match the results you want.  The sculptra bbl will then begin with a series of multiple injections into these areas. Is there downtime after the Sculptra BBL? No.  After the procedure you can resume normal activities and unlike the Brazilian Butt Lift, you do not have to avoid sitting! Who is a good candidate for the Sculptra Butt Lift? The Sculptra BBL is best for patients who are looking for a moderate increase in buttocks volume as well as those who do not want surgery, who do not have a lot of fat and also those who have a great deal of cellulite and sagging skin. Sculptra BBL vs Brazilian Butt Lift Brazilian Butt Lift surgery or BBL is the gold standard for buttocks enhancement.  Combining body contouring using liposuction, the BBL allows the surgeon to dramatically reshape your body with a thinner waist and a bigger butt.  It is very safe and performed using local anesthesia with limited downtime.  However, it is a surgical procedure and requires fat to transfer.  The Sculptra Butt Lift is non-surgical and performed in office with no downtime.  The Sculptra BBL also has the advantage of not requiring fat and the ability to be repeated as necessary to obtain the desired results. Expectations going in are also very important. Think about the Brazilian Butt Lift like putting a pillow under a sheet to visualize the results. The Sculptra BBL, in contrast, is like putting a comforter on top of the sheet.  Both will produce results but they will not be the same. How many Sculptra BBL treatments are necessary? Some Sculptra BBL patients will see some results in a few months but maximum results can take more than 6 months.  It is common for many patients to repeat the Sculptra Butt Lift in 6-12 weeks after the initial procedure. What is the Sculptra Butt Lift Cost? It all depends on how many vials of Sculptra you want.  Sculptra is priced per vial, the Sculptra Butt Lift Cost depends directly on the number of vials used during the procedure.

What is the Butt Lift Cost or BBL Cost Austin TX? A Butt Lift, or Butt Surgery, a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks.  The Butt Lift procedure has two main parts, liposuction and fat transfer.  The liposuction is necessary not only to collect fat, but to perform body sculpting that decreases the waist size.  Once the fat is collected by liposuction, it can then be used for fat transfer to the buttocks.  The goal of the Butt Lift is to produce a buttocks that is larger and more shapely.  The Butt Lift is an ideal add-on procedure to an abdominal and flanks liposuction procedure and the Butt Lift Cost is usually very reasonable. The Butt Lift cost is determined by the two procedures that comprise it.  There is a cost for the liposuction procedure and a cost for the fat transfer procedure.  The good thing about the Butt Lift Cost, it that most of the expense is already contained in the liposuction procedure.  The anesthesia, facility fee and other fees are already covered by the initial liposuction fee.   The fat transfer fee just needs to cover the expenses of performing the fat transfer procedure.  As a result, the BBL Cost Austin TX is not much more than a liposuction procedure alone. Brazilian Butt Lift Cost The Butt Lift or BBL is an ideal procedure to add on to a liposuction procedure.  As we discussed, the liposuction procedure already covers most of the fees involved.  As the fat collected from the liposuction would usually be thrown away, utilizing it for fat transfer makes a lot of sense.  The liposuction fat is a natural filler that you can use to enhance your body without the risks of artificial fillers.   So, a Butt Lift using the fat from liposuction for fat transfer can save you a lot of money besides giving you great results.  This is in contrast to Butt Implants which are artificial and very expensive. Butt Lift Cost-Brazilian Buttocks Lift Cost There are several factors that determine the final Brazilian Butt Lift Cost.  Not everybody is the same.  We have different amounts of fat as well as different body sizes.  So the Brazilian Buttocks Lift Cost must take into account the amount of fat to be removed, the buttocks size desired, etc.  Plus, the surgeon’s fee and operative time are increased with the addition of a Butt Lift to liposuction. A free in-person consultation is needed to determine the final butt lift cost.  The average national cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift in 2018 was $6525.…

What is BBL Surgery? BBL stands for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.  Simply, the BBL is a plastic surgery procedure utilizing liposuction and fat transfer to increase the size and contours of the buttocks.  BBL surgery can be performed safely while awake using tumescent anesthesia.  Liposuction is performed first, specifically focusing on decreasing the size of the waist.  By producing a smaller waist, the buttocks naturally looks bigger.  The fat removed during the liposuction, is then carefully injected into the buttocks with the aim of increasing its size and improving its shape.  No other procedure can produce the figure altering effects of the Brazilian Butt Lift. What is the BBL Cost? Considering the results delivered by BBL surgery, the Butt Lift Cost is quite reasonable.  No amount of dieting, exercise or non surgical procedures, can deliver the results of BBL surgery.  In fact, one can waste tens of thousands of dollars trying to get Brazilian Butt Lift results, with nothing to show for it.  The BBL cost at Beleza Medspa starts at $5999 and requires a free consultation for individualized pricing. Butt Implants vs BBL Before BBL surgery was perfected, Butt Implants were the only procedure available for buttocks augmentation.  The problem with butt implants was that a foreign body (plastic) had to be placed into the buttocks.  Obviously, having a foreign body in your buttocks for a lifetime was not ideal.  There were problems with movement of the implants as well as discomfort.  Further, butt implants required large incisions to be made that left scars and other concerns. BBL surgery has revolutionized buttocks augmentation.  By simply “taking fat from where you don’t want it and putting it where you want it”, BBL surgery has been a game changer.  The liposuction required to harvest the fat produces a smaller waist that by itself, produces a larger-looking buttocks.  The fat transfer procedure requires only small incisions and since the fat is from your body, the risks for infection or rejection are markedly decreased.  The buttocks normally contains a great deal of fat and using your own fat to enlarge them, makes sense and produces natural looking results.

10 things to know before getting butt surgery.

Butt Surgery: Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL There is no doubt about it, butts are in!  Women are clamoring for ways to change the size and shapes of their backsides with Butt Surgery.  The Brazilian Butt Lift has become increasingly popular as a method to get the butt many women want.  Plastic surgeons at Beleza Medspa Austin TX, have performed hundreds of Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries. They are known for their artistry and creativity in reshaping women’s figures.  They discuss the 10 things you need to know before getting butt surgery: the BBL or  butt lift: General Anesthesia is not needed. The Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL is performed safely while awake using only local anesthesia.  General anesthesia is actually riskier than the BBL itself.  By avoiding going under, the risk, cost and recovery from the procedure is greatly reduced. Liposuction of the waist is critical. We judge the size of someone’s butt in relation to the size of their waist.  Smaller waist equals bigger butt.  Aggressive body sculpting of the waist is critical for good results. Fat transfer has its limits. We are transferring living fat cells in the hope they will survive in a new area.  The amount of fat we transfer is not only limited by how much fat you have, but by the size of your butt.  If we inject too much into a small but, most of it will die.  Patients with small butts who seek great increases in size may need butt implants instead of a BBL. The butt loves fat. A large percentage of your butt is already fat.  As a result, transferred fat does very well in the butt.  It is important that the fat be handled carefully and injected back into the body as soon as possible. You need fat. We need something to transfer!  Weight gain before the procedure is recommended.  The best fat for transfer is from the abdomen and thighs. You cannot sit on it. You must avoid direct pressure on the butt for at least 72 hours after butt surgery and as little as possible during the first week.  You can sit, just put something under your thighs. There is no other way to do it. BBL surgery transforms your body in a way that cannot be replicated with diet and exercise.  The Brazilian Butt Lift Workout can give you some definition but it will not remove and transfer fat.  Body contouring of you waist and fat transfer to your buttocks is long-lasting as long as you take care of yourself.  The results are life-changing. You can resume normal activities quickly after butt surgery. When performed under local anesthesia, you are back on your feet immediately and go home numb.  Regular activities are resumed as soon as you can tolerate them. Its cheaper than you think. By avoiding unnecessary general anesthesia, the Brazilian Butt Lift Cost is dramatically reduced.  When a life-changing result is possible, the cost is very reasonable.  The BBL is substantially cheaper than Butt Implants. Not all BBL surgeons are the same. Surgeons are taught the mechanics of the procedure.  However, the BBL is actually more of an art than a science.   The artistic eye and creativity cannot be taught.  Your research of the Surgeon’s photos and reviews is critical.  The BBL is true body sculpting in every sense of the word. …

Sure you can tone it up, but increasing its size or shape is very difficult. Brazilian Buttocks augmentation or Butt Surgery, offers the ability to significantly change the size and shape of your butt. What is the Brazilian Butt Lift? The Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL is an elegant procedure that involves body contouring with liposuction and fat transfer.  The first step is aggressive body contouring to make the overall abdomen and waist smaller.  This includes fat removal  on the abdomen, flanks and back.  Just by giving you a smaller waist, your butt will already look bigger.  But there is more!  We then take the fat we removed to carefully enlarge the buttocks.  This is done by injecting small amounts of fat into different layers of the buttocks.  The effect is almost immediate and the results will improve as the swelling goes down. Brazilian Buttock Augmentation with Butt Implants. Patients who do not have enough fat or who want really large butts, may require butt implants. However most patients prefer using their own natural fat for buttocks augmentation. Gaining weight before the Brazilian Butt Lift is always an option to make more fat to transfer. Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Safe? Yes!  The Brazilian Buttocks Augmentation is performed under local anesthesia while awake. This eliminates dangerous general anesthesia as well as decreases the down time and lessens complications. You should be able to resume normal activities (except sitting) within a few days. How long do Brazilian Butt Lift results last? We will be dramatically changing the contours of your body.  There is no way to do this with diet and exercise.  The results are long-lasting as long as you maintain your weight and take care of yourself. Is the Brazilian Butt Lift right for me? If you are in good health, have your weight under control and desire a more curvy figure, then the Brazilian Butt Lift is the right procedure for you.  Having good skin and a few extra pounds is also important. How do I choose a Brazilian Buttock Augmentation surgeon?

Brazilian Butt Lift and Smartlipo Liposuction of the Waist. Many women seeking a bigger butt with the Brazilian Butt Lift are strictly focused on how much fat they can transfer.  They come in asking about the average amount of ccs of fat transferred and ask about the need to gain weight.  The fat transfer portion of the Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL procedure is very important.  However, many women are not aware of the even more important body sculpting of the waist.  A properly contoured and smaller waist and back can make any butt look bigger before injecting any fat.  Waist trainers can help with this. The Relationship of the Waist and Back to Butt Size. When we look at someone’s body, we actually judge the size of the buttocks in comparison the size of their back and waist.  Look at celebrity Nicki Minaj.  She does have a large, round butt, but its her tiny waist that really makes it stand out.  Many women who seek the Brazilian Butt Lift have good sized butts, but have large amounts of fat on their waists and backs.  This fat can be almost as large as their buttocks.  This leads to no transition from the back to the butt and the appearance of a flat butt.  This is despite having a good sized butt.   Butt Surgery: Body Sculpting of the Waist and Back & Waist Trainers The critical part of the Brazilian Butt Lift is aggressive liposuction of the waist and back.   The surgeon will shape a round top to the buttocks as well as a sharp transition from the back to the buttocks.  This gives the ledge effect that really emphasizes the butt in jeans.  This effect is entirely obtained using Smartlipo Liposuction.   Fat taken from the waist and back then can be transferred to the areas of the butt where it will have the most effect.  The overall goal is to make a rounder, plumper ‘bubble butt’ with the transferred fat.  The combination of the waist and back body sculpting with the buttocks fat transfer, gives the desired results of the Brazilian Butt Lift.  Use of waist trainers before and after Butt Lift surgery can improve results.   Smaller Waist after Liposuction Brazilian Butt Lift at Beleza MedSpa Beleza Cosmetic Surgeons have performed hundreds of Brazilian Butt Lift procedures. They are experts at performing the procedure totally under local anesthesia.  There is no risk of general anesthesia and patients are back on their feet immediately.  They also performed thousands of Smartlipo Liposuction procedures and can sculpt that skinny waist and back to give you that bigger butt!  Beleza Medspa also offer an affordable Butt Lift Cost.…

Brazilian Butt Lift Butt lifts can boost confidence, help clothes fit more easily, and help women feel even more attractive. Here are a few facts about butt lift procedures: What to Expect with a Butt Lift: The butt lift or BBL is relatively pain-free – given that local anesthesia is used. Oral sedation may also be given, and the patient remains awake. Some key points include: Butt lifts can be conducted with your own fat, meaning no implants and no rejection. Sculpt fat away pain-free from other areas, like the midsection, and re-inject it into the butt – for a much-needed lift. This is otherwise known as the Brazilian butt lift. Candidates will undergo detailed screenings to determine where fat will be harvested from with liposuction. The most common areas include the hip, thighs, or midsection, as discussed earlier. However, anywhere is fair game, if you’re unhappy with excess fat in one area for instance. Fat is filtered and then placed in the butt through layers, using fat transfer. The butt is sculpted until the anticipated shape by patients is set. More fat than desired is typically injected, due to the chances of reabsorption in the body. A follow-up session is typically recommended to get the best results possible. The average Brazilian butt lift cost starts at $5999, and in some cases financing is offered. Patients can get back to normal activities in as little as a few days. Contributing Factors When Signing Up for Butt Lifts Throughout different stages, women may become uncomfortable with the size and shape of their buttocks due to age, weight loss, pregnancy, or simply being born and teased about a flat bum. The good news is that you can get help with Butt Surgery. Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits: Perkiness – a perky rear-end is considered to be youthful and attractive. Butt lifts make sagging a thing of the past. Curves – stars like J. Lo, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian have set on a craze that curviness should be embraced. Many people are taking notice. Au-Natural – remember that Brazilian butt lifts use your own fatty tissues from unwanted areas, then transfers it to the butt. If you’ve always been displeased with the weight distribution of your body, now’s the time to make a change – it’s possible with the safe and effective transfers done in cosmetic surgery. The results are drastic and requires little effort on your part. See how you stack up against other patients. Scheduling and undergoing a Brazilian butt lift is as easy as 1-2-3.…

Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Transfer. Now more than ever, we are seeing a rise in popularity of curvaceous butts. The flat, straight figure is no longer the only desirable type of body, with a more curvaceous look being embraced. The admiration of these curvaceous figures can be attributed to the sought-after looks of celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Beyoncé, who are all well known for their curves. Brazilian Butt Lift Statistics New statistics show that more Americans are getting more buttock augmentations—nicknamed the Brazilian butt lift. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, last year, approximately 10,000 buttock augmentations were performed. This number is up from the approximately 8,500 procedures done in 2012. While these numbers are not even close to the figures for breast augmentation procedures, it does represent a 16% increase. Additionally, the number of cosmetic surgeons offering the butt life procedure rose from 19% in 2012, to 30% in 2013. One surgeon says that he started receiving requests for buttock augmentations about three and a half years ago, and it is currently the second most popular procedure he performs. While not as popular as liposuction, his practice has seen the number of Butt Lifts surpass breast augmentations. He also says that he does about four to five butt lifts per week, for both women and men. What is the Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL? While many think that this procedure is to just increase the size of the buttocks, it is actually done to provide a more youthful, lifted and contoured appearance. The Brazilian butt lift or BBL procedure entails “buttock augmentation with fat grafting”. The technique involves a surgeon performing liposuction, or removing fat from another body area, usually an area with excess fat such as the tummy, thighs, or hips. This fat is then injected into the buttocks. Surgeons say that the fat tissue is pliable, giving more control than synthetic materials such as silicone that are used for butt implants. Additionally, the patient receives two benefits from this procedure—losing fat in areas where it is unwanted, along with receiving a more pronounced derriere. Curious?

Butt Implants Near Me.

What are Butt Implants? In the search for a more shapely butt, many women will consider butt augmentation.  There are many ways to do this and one of them is with buttocks implants.  Butt implants are made of soft silicone.  They are designed to adhere to the curves of the buttocks while giving them more volume. They do require a surgical procedure to place them using a large incision.  They are placed into a pocket where they remain forever.  However, as we all know, we sit on our buttocks constantly.  As a result, you will be sitting on foreign objects that could cause discomfort. There is also a risk that they can move and become infected.  So although they can provide almost instant gratification, buttock implants are an imperfect solution to buttocks augmentation surgery. Do Butt Injections Work? There are some soft tissue fillers approved for use in body contouring overseas.  They mainly consist of hyaluronic acids like Hydrogel.   However, their longevity and problems with discomfort have limited their use.  Recently, there has been a rash of non-medical individuals performing Butt Injections with a host of different substances. There have been cases of silicone, caulk and even cement being injected into buttocks.  These cases have led to severe injury and disfigurement.  It is important to know that there are no completely safe buttock injections currently available. Brazilian Buttock Augmentation Surgery What is the Brazilian Butt Lift? Using safe, awake liposuction under local anesthesia, the Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat transfer to naturally perform Butt Augmentation. Your own fat is the best filler as it carries a lower risk of infection, allergic reaction and it is already a natural part of your buttocks. Even better, many of us have plenty of extra fat that we can donate to perform fat transfer to the buttocks.  The Butt Lift or BBL combines extensive body contouring using liposuction of the waist, abdomen and back.  Reducing the waist and lower back will enhance the size and shape of the buttocks prior to fat transfer.  The removed fat is  carefully distributed throughout the buttocks to build them up in a pleasing manner.  These are living fat cells that we want to survive so the patient cannot sit on them for 72 hours and as little as possible for the first week. Unfortunately, we will lose a certain percentage of the fat injected, but fat survival rates in the buttocks are high.  The Brazilian Butt Lift offers the best combination of body contouring and safe fat transfer to provide the round and fuller butt most women prefer.  Contact us for a free Butt Lift consultation now!…
