Squats? Check. Lunges? Check. Spinach protein shakes? Check. Check. Check.
You’ve tried every diet and exercise under the sun (even Donkey Kicks!), but your rear-end still refuses to conform to your desired shape and size. The obstinacy of your buttocks can be attributed to a variety of factors that are beyond your control, such as posture, genetics, and age. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic medicine have led to the advent of minimally-invasive treatments that can maximize your lifestyle efforts to help you achieve your ideal body contour.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-in-one treatment that allows you to eliminate stubborn fat collections from areas like under the chin, belly, thighs, etc. while simultaneously volumizing and lifting your buttocks. Using targeted liposuction, fat is extracted from unwanted bulges and siphoned into a specialized purification system. Once the fat is sufficiently refined, it is carefully injected into the buttocks to enhance your natural shape and size.
Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid ) is an injectable filler used to augment the buttocks in patients with limited fat reservoirs or those unable to tolerate liposuction. Sculptra is an effective global volumizer with a long safety record. Sculptra has a unique molecular composition that stimulates your body to produce new, healthy collagen that helps shape and lift your buttocks over time. Unlike a fat transfer with a traditional BBL, the Sculptra® Butt Lift will require a series of 3-4 treatment sessions spaced 6 weeks apart. Most patients will also need annual maintenance treatments to prolong their results.

Lifestyle modifications such as a healthy diet and regular exercise are helpful in shaping your rear-end; however, there are many other factors that contribute to the volume and lift of your buttocks. Genetics is one such culprit, along with the natural aging process. Even your posture can impact the contour of your buttocks! Since the determinants of the size and shape of your posterior are multifactorial, healthy habits may not be enough to produce the silhouette you desire.
Cosmetic medicine can complement your healthy lifestyle to help you overcome these additional factors that cannot be compensated for with diet and exercise alone. Committed to providing the least invasive and most effective procedures to his patients, Dr. Khorasani is pleased to offer the Brazilian or Sculptra Butt Lift to contour your derriere without the risks of implants. Each treatment recommendation is tailored to each patient to maximize your aesthetic results while also accounting for your specific health profile and lifestyle constraints. Together as a team, we will be able to craft a minimally-invasive buttocks augmentation plan to transform your cosmetic goals into reality.
The benefits of this comprehensive treatment are two-fold, as it allows you to eliminate an unwanted double chin, belly pooch, or love handles while simultaneously enhancing your buttocks. Consequently, the redistribution of fat in a Brazilian Butt Lift results in body sculpting that aligns with your aesthetic objectives.
The cosmetic outcomes of a Brazilian Butt Lift also look and feel natural, since this procedure utilizes your body’s own organic materials. Additionally, the transplantation of purified fat to the buttocks does not require a surgical incision. This prevents the formation of scars in this aesthetically prominent location, further enhancing the natural appearance of your buttocks augmentation. Use of your own fat storages also lends itself to sustained results, as the grafted product is not targeted by your body’s natural disposal systems.
Another benefit of a Brazilian Butt Lift includes the avoidance of surgical implants, which require replacement every ten years and are associated with serious adverse effects like leakage, infection, and malignancy. Brazilian Butt Lifts have an excellent track-record of efficacy and safety, allowing patients to achieve their ideal derriere while avoiding unwanted complications.
Buttocks augmentation with Sculptra utilizes an injectable filler with a proven track-record of safety and efficacy to enhance the shape and size of your rear-end. Sculptra contains a biocompatible synthetic substance that’s used for stimulating collagen production. This same substance has been used in absorbable sutures for the last 50 years and has an excellent safety record. Unlike other fillers, Sculptra does not initially offer significant volumization.
It works by stimulating your collagen and therefore, the results are gradual, but significant. Patients are typically treated over three separate visits, six weeks apart. The final results are evident approximately six months after the last treatment. Results can last up to two years; however, most patients do not go back to their original baseline and some residual volume tends to last for years. Sculptra is Dr. Khorasani’s filler of choice for global volumization of the buttocks.
A Sculptra Butt Lift with Dr. Khorasani is meticulously planned to accommodate each patient’s overall aesthetic objectives and pre-existing body curvatures. This culminates in the precise placement of filler to shape, firm, and lift your buttocks according to your ideal silhouette. The stimulatory properties of poly-L-lactic acid offer an augmentation that looks and feels natural, as the results of the injectable filler are enhanced by the influx of organic collagen. Other than volumizing the soft tissue, Sculptra offers the additional benefits of reducing the appearance of both stretch marks and cellulite.
Sculptra Butt Lifts are an excellent alternative to the Brazilian Butt Lift for patients with insufficient fat donor sites or those for whom liposuction is not a viable option. Augmenting the buttocks with Sculptra is also associated with significantly less downtime than the Brazilian Butt Lift, rendering this treatment ideal for patients with scheduling limitations. As with all cosmetic procedures, however, there is a trade-off to be paid for the limited downtime associated with a Sculptra Butt Lift. Patients undergoing buttocks augmentation with Sculptra will require multiple treatments to achieve their aesthetic goals and, overall, the results will likely be more subtle than those seen with a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Finally, as with the Brazilian Butt Lift, this minimally-invasive injectable filler avoids the complications and risks associated with traditional surgical implants while still enhancing the contour of your derriere.
