Patients who desire a more pleasing, curvaceous figure do not necessarily have to undergo surgery to achieve their goals. Butt augmentation is ideal for patients who want subtle improvement to their bottoms that they can enjoy immediately. Unlike butt augmentation using implants or fat grafting, butt injections enhance the posterior without any downtime or the need to go under general anesthesia. Dr. Mendieta performs butt injections using Sculptra® Aesthetic, which produces smooth, stunning contours by plumping the skin and stimulating collagen production.

Butt Injection Procedure
Butt injections is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime. Butt injection patients are free to resume their normal activities as long as they feel comfortable. You can expect mild bruising and swelling for five to seven days, and you must avoid applying pressure to your buttocks for two to three weeks.
Although there is no downtime after butt injections, patients may experience some swelling and soreness for up to one week. You may want to refrain from strenuous activity until the discomfort subsides. Exercises that require sitting will have to be avoided for two to three weeks.
Some patients experience mild bruising and swelling after receiving butt injections, but these side effects dissipate within two to three weeks. The final outcome is visible once the residual swelling subsides. Results are immediately noticeable after the first session, but patients report the most pleasing effects after the second or third treatment. Butt injection results typically do not require touch-ups for as long as two years.
Butt Injections FAQs
A Brazilian butt lift utilizes the patient’s own fat for large volume transfer, whereas a butt injection procedure uses a dermal filler called Sculptra® Aesthetic to enhance a patient's behind. Patients who want to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift must have enough excess fat around the body to transfer to the buttocks, but slimmer patients can opt for butt injections or butt implants.
