Emsculpt®: The FDA-Approved Non-surgical Butt Lift Alternative

Back To Blog Overview

By now, it’s no secret that Emsculpt® can achieve some amazing things. This exciting new technology has taken the cosmetic world and the media by storm because of its excellent results, easy treatment sessions, and low cost— what’s not to love? One thing you might not know, however, is that Emsculpt can give other treatments and procedures a run for their money when it comes to butt lift results. This can mean an end to countless squats, without the downtime or recovery that comes with surgical butt lift procedures. For this reason, Emsculpt can easily fit your healthy lifestyle and enhance the great results you’ve been working on. Here’s what you should know about this option for achieving the perky butt you’ve always wanted with Emsculpt, a non-surgical butt lift alternative.

What is Emsculpt?

Most people have a little extra fat that doesn’t seem to respond to even the strictest diet and exercise. It can seem like an endless battle, especially with the wide array of non-surgical fat reduction treatments that don’t seem to achieve the toned, tight contours you’ve been working hard for. Enter: Emsculpt. Emsculpt is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical fat reduction system that simultaneously builds muscle in the buttock area with just a few treatment sessions. Currently, this game-changing treatment can be used on the stomach, flanks, and butt for effective body contouring that both reduces fat and tones muscle. This means you can put the finishing touches on your body and fitness goals with as few as four treatments. It also means that you can achieve the tight and perky butt you’ve been hoping for.

How does it work?

The Emsculpt butt lift works by generating high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) pulses that travel to the attached plate on your buttocks. These electromagnetic pulses cause the underlying butt muscles to contract beyond what your body can achieve on its own, causing the body to build muscle and burn fat in the process (or, about the equivalent of around 20,000 squats!) There’s no need to worry, though— Emsculpt is comfortable and pain-free, although it can sound a little bit like science fiction. Most patients report that they simply feel sore after Emsculpt, similar to after an intensive workout. Over the course of four treatments (our recommended package) you’ll begin to see a distinct reduction in fat and better muscle definition in your buttock profile. These results only get better as you continue your diet and exercise regimen, and you can always opt for touch-up treatments.

If you’re looking at your butt lift options, you should know that Emsculpt can produce some excellent results using this technique. Although many butt lift methods simply add volume to the area for better projection and shape, Emsculpt can both reduce unwanted fat around the butt and tone the underlying muscles for a more lifted, perkier butt. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it reduces the size of the butt— rather, it can tone and accentuate the butt and the areas around it for a more pronounced and defined figure and form.

What about the Sculptra® Butt Lift?

Because butts are a point of focus in the cosmetic industry in the last few years, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to achieving your ideal curves. Although these options might be best for some patients, Emsculpt can offer some great benefits to others. Sculptra® is one option using an injectable product made with poly-L-lactic acid, which is commonly used in absorbable sutures and certain types of surgical implants. Sculptra is unique from other injectable fillers because it causes the body to increase its production of collagen as it dissolves over time. Although it’s commonly used in the face to reduce signs of aging, it can be used to lift the butt with added volume under the skin while also firming and smoothing skin and cellulite. Many patients find great results with Sculptra because it doesn’t require any downtime, provides long-term results, improves skin quality, and doesn’t require incisions (unlike fat transfer techniques). However, the Sculptra butt lift may not be for everyone because of its cost— for ideal results, it can sometimes require up to ten vials of product, making it much more expensive than your Emsculpt butt lift alternatives. Depending on your goals, you might also require multiple rounds of treatment and touch-ups as your final results emerge.

Does Emsculpt really work?

You can rest assured that Emsculpt has done its homework when it comes to producing butt lift results. So far, Emsculpt has undergone seven clinical studies to prove its safety and effectiveness (which is six more than required by the FDA). These studies produced results that show an average increase of 16% in muscle mass, and an average decrease of 19% in fat. There are numerous Emsculpt butt lift reviews and Emsculpt butt lift before and after galleries to show what it can achieve, all with a great price and easy treatment sessions.

In order to get the best out of your Emsculpt treatments, it’s important that you be dedicated to an active and healthy lifestyle so you can maintain your great non-surgical butt lift results. Although you can opt for touch-up treatments in the future, weight gain can still occur— especially in areas that aren’t yet approved for treatment with Emsculpt. We can recommend the best ways to keep your great figure and your new butt during a consultation with our cosmetic physicians.

When will I see results?

Emsculpt treatment packages consist of a series of four treatments spread over two weeks. Unlike other fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting®, which can take up to a few months to show final results, most Emsculpt patients begin to see improvement in their buttock profile during the second week of treatment. This only improves over time with additional exercise and touch-up treatments. The best part? You can get right back to feeling and looking like your best self— and leave a great impression on the way out.
