Sculptra® Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to 4 injection sessions that are scheduled about 3 weeks apart for correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles. With the use of Sculptra, a long-lasting substance that is injected into the buttocks to stimulate your body’s own collagen, you can now gently add more volume and shape to the butt without surgery or downtime.
GraceMed’s Dr. Sean Rice, a national trainer for Sculptra, suggests multiple treatments for best results. Treatments start at $4500 ($6000 if PRP is added) and patients generally need 3-4 treatments with results lasting 2-3 years. Book Now!

Sculptra Butt Lift
With the use of Sculptra, a long-lasting substance that is injected into the buttocks to stimulate your body’s own collagen, you can now gently add more volume and shape to the butt without surgery or downtime.
Sculptra Butt Lift Procedure
First, topical lidocaine is applied to the area to be injected. Once the skin is numbed (usually after 30 minutes), Sculptra is injected into the upper buttock with very small needles. Depending on the desired level of augmentation, most patients require about three treatments, six weeks apart. Although results can be noticed as early as six weeks after the treatments, the optimal outcome is not noticed until about six months after the procedure.

Sculptra Butt Lift Recovery
There is very little downtime— you may have some bruise marks at the injection site for up to 14 days. Other rare complications include the formation of small nodules under the skin, which may have to be treated by a doctor for resolution. Patients are encouraged to massage the area throughout the day for the first five days after the procedure. Maximum results may last 18 months to two years after the injections.
