Brazilian Butt Lift
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a butt lifting procedure (buttock augmentation) to change the shape and volume of your buttocks.
Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift
The surgeon proceeds by harvesting fats from the unwanted body areas and implants them (injects fat) into areas of the body according to the client's preference. This procedure can be performed for the face and other areas such as buttocks. The procedure can also be performed using silicone implants. This video shows a fat transfer procedure (Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center does not perform this procedure).
Advantages and disadvantages
Advantages include effectiveness and that the client uses their excess fats to enhance other areas of their body. Disadvantages include the use of general anesthesia (intravenous sedation) and downtime. Moreover, harvesting fats is a process that leaves bruising. The price is significantly higher than the non-surgical route.
Non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift-Sculptra and PDO threads
We use the collagen-inducing filler called Sculptra. Dr. Alhallak Ph.D. injects Sculptra in the buttocks area. We might use a sharp needle to help with cellulite. The following video shows the Sculptra injection in the buttocks.
The PDO threads are made of the same material as wound stitches. The material is biocompatible (it blends with the body tissue) and biodegradable (it dissolves by itself over time). The 360 bi-directional barb threads lift tissues and hold it in place. Over time, new collagen builds up and replaces the threads to provide a natural tether to keep tissue lifted. It is widely used for a non-surgical facelift and we started to use it in different parts of the body
Are PDO threads safe?
Yes, the procedure is very safe and does not require any sedation. The area is infused with lidocaine to block the nerves, so the procedure is painless. However, the area would be very tender for 48 hours. The downtime is 48 hours and clients should expect some bruising.
How much is the cost for a non-surgical butt lift?
The starter package is two vials of Sculptra and 10 threads of PDO priced at $3,000.This procedure is not covered by AHS or other insurance.
