Non-Surgical Butt Lift with Sculptra Aesthetics or Radiesse

As the name suggests, a non-surgical butt lift is a butt lift done without surgery. Instead of liposuction and fat transfer which are both semi-invasive surgical procedures, a non-surgical butt lift instead uses injectable dermal fillers to round out the buttocks in essentially the same manner that a BBL would do.

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable product that is used to reduce the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. And it is widely used to enhance the shape of the butt. Sculptra іѕ used to thісkеn thе ѕkіn and ѕtіmulаtе соllаgеn growth uѕіng mісrо-іnvаѕіvе injections deep to the skin and above the level of the muscle. It іѕ different than a fаt grаft, because the result is your collagen being formed which gives the augmentation, and thеrе іѕ no obvious down tіmе required except for some mild discomfort of the bum a few days afterward.

Do Sculptra Butt Injections Work?

Yes, Sculptra is a great filler that can be used all over the body for long-lasting results. Sculptra is often used to reduce moderate to severe lines in the face but can also be used to fill out the butt and make it appear more full. Sculptra does this by boosting collagen levels.


Radiesse is another great option that utilizes a dermal filler by the same name, with treatments spaced out every 4 weeks, and results are seen after the first 2 treatments. These results can last up to 5 years. The benefits of this procedure are that the sculpting is rapid and effective, and it reduces cellulite while increasing volume.
