Have you been contemplating a BBL to have the buttocks of your dreams? Did you know there is also a BBL option that is non-surgical? If you are interested in learning about the differences between surgical BBL vs. non-surgical butt lift, and which option may be right for you, read on!
The Difference Between Surgical and Non-Surgical BBL
A surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is done using liposuction to gather excess fat from another part of the body, normally, love handles, thighs, waist, abdomen, or back. The fat is put through a sterilization process and then strategically injected into the buttocks to create the full, round, lifted, and voluptuous bottom desired. The extra advantage of a surgical BBL is the liposuction portion slims, contours, and enhances your waist, thighs, back, or abdomen which complements your new derriere.
Surgical BBL is often done in tandem with a tummy tuck, and recently we’ve covered the pros and cons of combining these surgeries.
A non-surgical Brazilian butt lift is another option offered to enhance, reshape and lift buttocks without surgery. This non-invasive procedure is free from incisions, implants, or prolonged downtime and is great for patients who would like a fuller, shapelier backside but are naturally slim and don’t have excess fat needed for a traditional BBL. This procedure is done using an injectable dermal filler to create added volume and a nice subtle lift.

What Kind of Filler Is Used for a Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?
At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Dr. Angelina uses Radiesse. Radiesse® is a very effective dermal filler that can be used for buttock enhancement. Radiesse is calcium-based and promotes natural collagen production in the body to help plump and lift the buttocks. Clinical trials have shown that cellulite, stretch marks, and other surface irregularities can be addressed with Radiesse. You will see results right away, and more results over time, as your body begins to produce more collagen.
