Sculptra butt lift

If you are looking for a non-invasive approach, then Sculptra buttock lifting can be very effective and done without epinephrine.  If you are looking for buttock augmentation with fat grafting, then you can do this without the epinephrine. 

I would also check with an allergist as to the nature of your reaction with epinephrine as this is quite uncommon.  If it is more that you feel your heart races, etc..., then lower doses can be used or not used at all.

Fat grafting to SGAP defect

You are no likely to be truly allergic to epinephrine, this is actually medication used when you have an allergic reaction. Fat grafting is yourvbest option and it can be done without epinephrine if needed.
