If you are looking to enhance the size and shape of your butt without surgery, then a non-surgical butt augmentation may be your answer. Non-surgical butt lifts can be performed with two different approaches.
Dr. Few performs his Chicago non-surgical butt lifts with the use of Sculptra, or butt augmentation performed with the modern technique of fat grafting. You will discuss these options with Dr. Few during your initial consultation to find out which procedure best suits your medical requirements and cosmetic enhancement goals.
Sculptra is composed of a biocompatible and absorbable material which helps your body regenerate lost collagen. When Sculptra is introduced to the buttocks it will fill the area out, enhancing the contours. When Sculptra is used for a butt lift it adds volume to your butt, giving it a lifted, rounder, fuller appearance, and the added benefit of triggering your body to produce more natural collagen.
The procedure starts with the application of a local anesthetic before Sculptra is systematically injected into specific regions around the upper buttocks. A butt lift with Sculptra generally takes multiple treatments over the course of a few months to achieve maximum enhancement.
Good candidates are:
As the procedure is non-invasive there is minimal to no downtime. Once the anesthetic wears off you may have some bruising or swelling around the injection sites, but you can otherwise anticipate returning to your routine as usual. Any bruising and swelling should resolve within a week to ten days after the injections. During this time, it may be suggested that you gently massage the area regularly to enhance the results.
Some results will be noticeable within the first month. After three treatments, full results are visible within six months.
Some risks include the formation of nodules below the skin. Other risks include bleeding, bruising and swelling in the treated area. It is always best to have cosmetic procedures performed by a board-certified Chicago plastic surgeon to help avoid the potential risks.
The results after a full three treatments with Sculptra could last up to eighteen months and for many, even longer.
Fat grafting for butt augmentation is also known as a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Few also performs fat grafting for butt augmentation. The use of your own natural fat can lead to longer-lasting results and a more natural feel. This procedure combines liposuction with fat grafting, harvesting fat from areas where it is unwanted such as on the abdomen or thighs and relocating it to the buttocks. As it is your own tissue from your body it is readily accepted and there is no risk of rejection. There is an added benefit in that the area from which fat is harvested is slimmed and sculpted.
The recovery time after fat grafting may take six to eight weeks, depending on how efficiently your body heals. There will be bruising and swelling around the areas where liposuction was performed as well as on the buttocks. You will be required to wear compression garments for a period of time following the procedure to ensure that your new butt holds the shape it is meant to, and so swelling can be reduced. Following the aftercare instructions during this time is a must, as well as avoiding sitting during the first stages of recovery.
Light exercise can be resumed around a month after the procedure and very gentle activity may be performed up until that point. Having regular post-op checkups with Dr. Few will ensure that you are recovering as you should be, and he will be able to update you on how to care for your body as you continue to heal. The end result of Dr. Few's non-surgical butt augmentation in Chicago is a beautifully lifted and full buttocks.
