The Safest Butt Enhancement Options: Injectables to Surgery

In recent years, Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery has come under scrutiny for its rate of complications. While studies revealed these safety issues resulted in part from the use of incorrect and dangerous methods, board-certified plastic surgeons practicing today are informed about the best practices for avoiding these complications. Performed correctly by our highly qualified board-eligible or board-certified plastic surgeons, injectable butt lift with Sculptra and the Brazilian Butt Lift are both safe and effective procedures!

Read on to learn more about these procedures and find out which option is best for you:


For patients who want to avoid surgical procedures, Sculptra is our go-to butt lift option because it’s non-surgical and the recovery requires little-to-no downtime. Most patients even go right back to their normal routine soon after receiving injections (no donut pillows required!).

After Sculptra injections, you’ll see an instantly improved lift and contour to your buttocks, with gradual, cumulative improvements to skin firmness and contour. Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which promotes collagen growth in your skin over time and leads to natural results. BBL fat injections are placed in the subcutaneous fat layer, which is close to muscle. Sculptra can last up to two years and be injected as often as needed. Schedule your complimentary consultation with one of our experienced nurse injectors to understand your treatment!


The Brazilian butt lift involves liposuction on the hips, thighs, abdomen, or flanks to retrieve fat to be re-injected in your buttocks. It is an effective butt lift method, with 70% or more of the injected fat usually remaining in the area long-term and can have lasting results if you follow after-care instructions and maintain a stable weight. While full recovery takes around 6 months, you can expect immediate visible results that are mostly permanent.

A good surgeon should transparently and honestly explain the safety risk: if the fat is injected into the gluteal muscle or below the muscle, there is a risk that it can enter your bloodstream and cause a pulmonary embolism or blood vessel blockage. Our board certified plastic surgeons use safe, recommended techniques to prevent this complication.

It is important to understand all your options when considering butt lift enhancement, and ensure you choose a well-qualified plastic surgeon to answer all questions and further explain any possible complications.
