The latest trends in enhancing the derriere are non-surgical. The non-surgical procedures require little to no downtime. The great thing is that they still work to achieve the desired results. The traditional BBL surgery, as explained on the BeautyFix MedSpa website, uses liposuction and the strategic placement of fat to create a beautiful silhouette.
Liposuctioned fat from the abdomen, upper back, flanks, and possibly the inner thighs, is purified and grafted to add volume and shape the buttocks. The latest trends in butt lifts are injectables and other treatments that do not have the risks associated with surgery. The Emsculpt butt lift, Sculptra Butt Lift, and the Radiofrequency butt lift are the most common procedures for non-surgical butt lifting.
The Sculptra Butt Lift
The Sculptra Butt Lift procedure is ideal for people who do not wish to have a traditional BBL surgery. An individual who chooses this procedure may also be someone who is simply not a good candidate for the surgical procedure. Some people do not have enough fat to graft. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, today the amount of BBL surgeries that have been performed has doubled to more than 25,000 procedures.
This also increased the number of related deaths. This occurs once in every 3000 procedures. It is primarily due to fat embolisms that take place in the lungs. Sculptra is made up of a poly-l-lactic acid which plumps the buttocks by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. This procedure has been approved by the FDA in the use of facial plumping for patients who have that Wasting Syndrome. Today it can also be used to non-surgically achieve the butt lift.
Things to Consider
1. Sculptra requires multiple sessions and each session occurs 6 to 12 weeks apart.
2. One treatment session will require 5 to 10 vials of injection fluid.
3. One vial can cost anywhere between 800 to $1,200.
4. Results may only last two years so maintenance is recommended.
The major pro of this procedure is that it does not require the downtime that the traditional BBL requires. A disadvantage is that Sculptra can be expensive and require a lengthy process. Sculptra may still be a viable option for those who choose to opt-out of surgery.
Emsculpt for Butt Lifting
Emsculpt for butt lifting achieves a tighter and firmer backside such as one would achieve with squats. It enhances the volume of the buttocks by increasing the gluteal muscle mass. The Emsculpt device is used to focus electromagnetic energy to the gluteal muscles. The muscles are stimulated with 20,000 contractions within a half hour.
This amounts to a high impact workout greater than what is physically possible in the gym. The high-intensity of gluteal contractions strengthen and thicken the muscle fibers. Muscle mass is increased by 16% after just four treatments. It is recommended to complete four sessions over two weeks. This procedure provides plumper buttocks that will continue to occur from two to six months.
According to the BeautyFix MedSpa website, the increased muscle gain can be retained only by exercise or maintenance treatments. It works in the same manner of muscle gained in the gym. If you stop going, the results will fade. Annual maintenance treatments and regular exercise are advised to keep your new look. Each of the four treatments costs about $1,000.
The Radiofrequency Butt Lift
The Radiofrequency Butt Lift will create a tighter and more toned appearance of the butt by tightening the skin. This procedure, however, does not add volume. The radiofrequency device is used to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. As the skin tightens, the buttocks are lifted.
This makes the buttocks appear higher and younger-looking. Results are normally visible with about two treatments. You can stop or add one to two treatments for further enhancement. The BeautyFix MedSpa website suggests annual treatments to maintain your radio frequency butt lift. One treatment package is around $3,000.
The Surgical BBL is proven to be most desirable when it comes to enhancing the butt. It gives you volume, contours and shapes the buttocks with results that last for many years. The risks are higher but the benefits in terms of your results are greater than non-surgical procedures. A non-surgical procedure offers improvements that may fade with time but are a safe option to augment the shape and contour of the buttocks.
