I'd like to reshape my butt (mainly take away some fat and lift) and smooth the cellulite. Can Sculpsure help?

In general i would not use Sculpsure on your butt
Sculpsure will not help Cellulite. in general the butt skin does not have great tightening ability. i avoid generally doing either Sculpsure or Smartlipo on the butt itself.

SculpSure may fall under the 'budget' category in comparison to liposuction, however SculpSure has been specifically designed to treat the abdomen and flanks.
Your physician/practitioner can decide to treat the buttock area as this site is often considered an 'off-site' area, which mean you CAN treat it but it is up to your discretion whether or not you would like to treat these areas. The reason for this is because, off site areas have more muscle than fat and are in closer proximity to bones which may cause more pain/discomfort for the patient. You mentioned a lift as well... SculpSure patients may see a slight tightening of the skin post treatment, but the results are not as pronounced as other laser skin tightening treatments. It's best to go in for a in-person consultation so you and your doctor can work out a customized body contouring system that works for you!
Thank you for your question. SculpSure certainly fits for you in terms of the cost, non-invasiveness and the recovery. It targets the flanks and the abs, which will have a complementary effect on your butt. Please post pictures on this site. Also, I suggest that you next consult in person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Cellfina is the latest nonsurgical treatment for treating the back of thighs and buttock for cellulite. Hi def lipo combined with VANQUISH and exilis or venus legacy can help you achieve a more sculpted look to this area. ThermiRF can help the buttock roll. If there is fat in a localized area, sculpsure or coolsculpting can be used. I would seen an expert for a formal consultation. Best, Dr. Emer
Combination Approach the Best
Most women really want back the original smooth, round, and lifted shape of their buttocks. While I don't recommend using SculpSure directly on the buttocks, I think using it in the "saddle-bag" area can create much of the visual appeal you are looking for. Removing the fat in that area can re-create the roundness that is so much desired. We often will use some PelleFirm (radio-frequency energy) to tighten up the skin and reduce cellulite on the buttocks as well (often at no additional cost in conjunction with the SculpSure).
