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 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. BBL Results When interested in Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, one should look at BBL Before and After Photos to judge BBL Results.  View some of Beleza Medspa’s BBL results here. Butt Lift Near Me …

Kylie Jenner: Puberty or Plastic Surgery?

Kylie Jenner Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures. Kylie has admitted to the use of lip fillers due to her small lips.  Seeking poutier lips, she has had lip injections with a filler like Juvederm.  Performed in-office, lip injections are safe but have a limited lifespan of around 4-6 months.  Those seeking longer term results, can try fat transfer to the lips. Kylie also appears to be using Botox to alter her facial muscles.  She appears to have a Botox Brow Lift and a Botox Lip Flip.  She has also most likely had microneedling with PRP to improve her skin texture.  Kylie Jenner Breast Surgery. Kylie appears to have a dramatic change in the size and shape of her breasts.  This was most likely accomplished with breast augmentation using breast implants.  Breast Augmentation provides immediate, long-lasting results.  Breast augmentation can also be performed with fat transfer in many cases. Kylie Jenner Butt Surgery Kylie has also unveiled a new figure complete with a smaller waist and bigger butt.  This was most likely accomplished with a Brazilian Butt Lift or Buttock Implants.  The Brazilian Butt Lift combines aggressive body contouring with liposuction to make a smaller waist and back.  The fat removed is then transferred to the buttocks to increase the size and provide a change in shape and lift.  This procedure can be performed in-office under local anesthesia.  Buttock implants involve the use of silicone inserts inserted into the buttocks under general anesthesia.

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. …

Curious about Brazilian Buttocks Augmentation?* Curves are in and butts lead the way!  Some of us are born with great butts but many of us need some help.  Unfortunately, it is next to impossible to target your butt with diet and exercise. 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? You need to look at the cosmetic surgeon’s training, experience, results and reviews.   It takes many Brazilian Butt Lifts before a surgeon becomes competent with the procedure.  However, the artistry and creativity required for great results cannot be taught.  This is where your research of photos and reviews comes in.  Check out plastic surgeon Dr Staci Hix-Hernandez MD who has performed hundreds of Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries.

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.…
