Buttocks Enhancement vs. Brazilian Butt Lift: Which Is Right for Me?

If your weekly routine of squats, lunges, and step-ups isn’t giving you the shapelier backside you’re after, you may find yourself exploring other ways to build your buttocks. Luckily, your bottom-enhancing options run the gamut from noninvasive enhancement to minimally invasive and surgical butt lift procedures.   

With four locations in Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Sandy Springs, Georgia, and Wellesley, Massachusetts, our team at Smooth Body Contours offers a full scope of “booty sculpting” solutions for people who are looking to attain fuller, curvier derrières. 

Here, we take a closer look at how buttocks enhancement compares to the Brazilian butt lift with Sculptra®, and how each works to give you the body shape and proportion you want.  

Three techniques to attain a better bottom

At Smooth Body Contours, we offer three different bottom-shaping techniques to help you get a more bountiful backside: 

Vacuum buttocks enhancement 

Buttocks enhancement is a noninvasive backside-enhancing treatment that uses vacuum therapy — or painless mechanical suction and massage — to lift and firm your skin tissues and help you get a larger, rounder-looking bottom and firmer skin without surgery or downtime. 

When applied to your backside, the deep massaging effects of vacuum therapy promotes enhanced gluteal toning and shape through:

Vacuum therapy has the added benefit of minimizing the appearance of cellulite as it maximizes the size and shape of your bottom — providing gradually improving results over a series of treatment sessions. 

Brazilian butt lift with Sculptra

Also known as a “liquid butt lift,” this minimally invasive backside-shaping technique uses a long-lasting, collagen-building dermal filler called Sculptra to enhance the shape and size of your buttocks from the inside out, without surgery or downtime.   

 This FDA-approved filler contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a powerful collagen-stimulating catalyst that’s absorbed by your deep dermal tissues. Once there, PLLA releases a steady stream of collagen-boosting microparticles to trigger long-lasting skin structure renewal. 

As the go-to filler for people who want to restore lost soft tissue volume due to age-related facial deflation, Sculptra has the same plumping effects when it’s applied to your derrière.  

Brazilian butt lift with liposuction 

A traditional Brazilian butt lift combines surgical liposuction with fat transferral to help you get the backside shape and proportion you’re after. Also known as buttock augmentation surgery, this cosmetic bottom-shaping procedure involves: 

The purified fat that we use to shape your gluteal area and enhance your natural curves may come from your belly, flanks, or thighs. On top of giving you a more sensual balance between your lower and upper body, the Brazilian butt lift with liposuction can give you a slimmer profile through your midsection, too. 

Weighing the pros and cons of your options

When deciding which buttocks enhancement solution is right for you, consider the following:

If you want subtle booty-enhancing results attained in the least invasive way possible, vacuum therapy is an excellent option. The only potential downside of this choice is that it requires one or two 40-minute sessions per week until you complete the 10-session plan — after which you may opt to have monthly sessions to maintain your results long-term. 

If you’re looking for long-lasting bottom-shaping results that don’t require surgery or a major time commitment, a liquid butt lift with Sculptra can be ideal. Most people need two to three Sculptra treatments, with sessions spaced about six weeks apart, to attain optimal buttocks enhancement results. Even better, you can expect your results to last up to two years.  

If you prefer a one-and-done butt lift treatment that delivers lasting results that require no upkeep from you — and you don’t mind having a minor in-office procedure — nothing beats the combination of precision liposuction and fat transfer.
