DA Derrière

DA Derriere

A fuller backside is in fashion today as celebrities have shown us how to fill out our favorite jeans with sexy, youthful curves. For those not blessed with the roundness they want, Destination Aesthetics has a nonsurgical option called DA Derrière. As one of the top medical spas in the Sacramento area, we can enhance your buttocks using Sculptra® Aesthetic instead of using harvested fat from your body. Also called a Sculptra® butt lift, this procedure is popular with our clients from El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville, and Sacramento, CA. Destination Aesthetics has perfected the technique for consistently smooth, natural results without anesthesia, downtime, or scarring.

Adding Curves Without Surgery

Sculptra® is an innovative volumizer that adds volume over the long term by stimulating the body’s processes. Sculptra®’s active ingredient is poly-L-lactic acid, which is a sugar manufactured by our bodies after exercise. When injected into the fatty tissue underneath the skin’s surface, it adds volume over time as the body’s natural processes kick in to support the results. Collagen and elastin production are promoted, which turn back the clock on both the cellular makeup of the skin and its outward appearance, while Sculptra® provides subtle lift and fullness to the backside.

The FDA approved Sculptra® in 2009 for the treatment of nasolabial folds (creases extending from the nose to the mouth) and other facial lines as a result of the aging process. The approval was based on randomized trials that showed Sculptra® offered significant volumizing benefits in problem spots like the cheek area and other areas of the face. It has also been shown to create positive results off-label in areas like the hips and buttocks when it is administered by an experienced injector.

Using Sculptra® to Enhance the Buttocks

Due to Sculptra®’s ability to add volume and fullness to treatment areas, doctors are beginning to recognize that Sculptra® can add subtle volume to the buttocks without anesthesia, incisions or post-operative scarring. This treatment is also an alternative for patients that do not have enough fat in another area of the body to transfer to the buttocks and achieve the desired results.

In addition to providing additional fullness and lift, Sculptra® injections offer positive benefits for the skin. The extra collagen production leads to smoother, thicker skin in the treatment area, with a noticeable reduction in dimpling and other imperfections. These results can further enhance your more youthful backside, giving you the confidence to flaunt your favorite bathing suits all summer long.

Patients who opt for a natural re-volumizer for their buttock augmentation have peace of mind knowing their choice is both easy on the body and natural over the long term. Sculptra® is a biocompatible version of a substance produced naturally by the body, so there is almost no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection of the filler. Results appear gradually and may last up to two years before another treatment is required to maintain your new contour.

Getting the DA Derrière Treatment at Destination Aesthetics

Before you begin any skin treatment at Destination Aesthetics, we will assess your precise needs and educate you about the various options available. Our complimentary consultation is the time to discuss your aesthetic goals, ask questions and determine which procedure will help you meet those goals best. Our team is committed to your comfort and confidence, so we will make sure you have a thorough understanding of the procedure and the results you can expect.

The procedure does not take long to perform since no anesthesia is needed before injections. You will see initial results right away, although this is due to the saline solution that is injected with the Sculptra® particles, not the actual Sculptra® product. The fluid will be reabsorbed by your body within 2 to 3 days, and in the following weeks, you will see the Sculptra® begin to work to enhance the size, shape and position of your buttocks. Most patients will need a series of 3 treatment sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart, and will see their full results within about 6 months.

How Does a Nonsurgical Butt Lift Differ From BBL or Butt Implant Surgery?

A DA Derrière treatment (Sculptra® butt lift or nonsurgical butt lift) differs greatly from BBL (Brazilian butt lift) and butt implants, which are surgical procedures. Here are the basics of each procedure:

Sculptra Butt Lift

  • How it works: Fills out the buttocks with injections of Sculptra into the skin of the buttocks.
  • Anesthesia: None needed.
  • Incisions: None.
  • Downtime: Avoid strenuous activity for a day or 2, but no downtime is required.
  • Results: Develop gradually within about 8 to 12 weeks as collagen forms. Final results last about 2 years.


  • How it works: Excess fat is collected with liposuction, purified, then injected into the buttocks.
  • Anesthesia: General anesthesia.
  • Incisions: Tiny and not usually noticeable.
  • Downtime: Return to work and nonstrenuous activity in about a month. No sitting on the buttocks for at least 2 weeks.
  • Results: Immediately noticeable. Areas treated with liposuction will be swollen for several weeks. Final enhancement lasts indefinitely.

Butt Implants

  • How it works: The buttocks are enlarged with silicone implants placed beneath the large buttock muscle through incisions between the buttocks.
  • Anesthesia: General anesthesia.
  • Incisions: Concealed between the buttocks.
  • Downtime: Avoid sitting on the buttocks for at least 2 weeks. Return to work and nonstrenuous activity in about a month. No restrictions after about 6 weeks.
  • Results: Visible immediately and last forever.

Sculptra® is an effective way to subtly enhance the size and position of the buttocks without surgery. The procedure is only available at a few medical spas today, and Destination Aesthetics is one that offers this treatment to our California patients.
