Thinking Of Getting A Butt Lift? Here Are The Non Surgical Alternatives You Should Consider

If you’ve been considering a butt lift, you may have seen what happens during and after the surgery. It’s a pretty invasive process and can be expensive, which is why many people hesitate before jumping into the surgery. Any voluntary surgery should be carefully considered, and part of that process is exploring alternative options.

If you’re eager to reshape your figure and achieve a more curvy or rounded bum, this blog is for you. There are non-surgical alternatives that can help you achieve the derriere of your dreams without the need for a scalpel.

What Is A Butt Lift, a.k.a. The BBL?

The Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, was created by Brazilian plastic surgeon Dr Pitanguy. It was first attempted as early as 1969, using butt implants similar to breast implants. However, the procedure did not produce the desired outcome and there was little to no demand for it.

In 2010, the popularity of prominent bums rose thanks to celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. Since then, BBLs have been in steady demand.

The BBL Procedure

The BBL procedure consists of three steps. First, fat is extracted from your hips, back, thighs, and abdomen using a tool similar to that used in liposuction. The extracted fat is then purified outside of your body.

A qualified plastic surgeon then inserts the purified fat into your butt using a specific technique. The added fat rounds out your rear, creating a symmetrical and larger ‘bubble butt’ shape.

Although a butt lift can achieve a larger behind, it is an invasive procedure that carries the same risks as any major surgery. Your buttocks contain numerous nerves and blood vessels, and there is a risk of injury, embolism, or even death if a cannula hits one of them.

In addition there are other potential side effects that can occur following a butt lift surgery. Infections, such as cellulitis, are common due to the nature of the surgery.

What Are The Alternatives To A Butt Lift

If you feel that the risks of surgery are too high, there are non-surgical treatments available that can help you achieve the desired butt lift without any of the associated risks.

Here at Dr Sobia Medispa, we offer 4 treatments that can be used to create a shapely and rounded bum.


Lanluma is an innovative collagen-stimulating treatment that provides roundness to targeted areas, providing a natural-looking butt lift. 

This non-surgical option uses safe and effective injections of a primary component called poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). When injected into your chosen areas – most commonly the ‘hip dips’ – the chemical triggers the cells to produce collagen. Collagen growth gives your butt a lifted and fuller appearance.

The final look following your treatment is a rounder, plumper behind with added volume to the hips if needed too. Results are long-lasting following 3-6 sessions, and collagen production occurs gradually over 3-6 months. This means less chance of stretch marks because the skin isn’t forced to stretch suddenly.

Radio Frequency & Fat Freezing

Medical-grade radio frequency and fat freezing are two popular and effective non-surgical alternatives to buttock lifting surgery. Radiofrequency involves the use of high-powered and safe radio waves to stimulate collagen production. 

Fat freezing, sometimes combined with radiofrequency in the same treatment, applies intense cold to the skin, destroying unwanted fat cells and tightening the skin.

Together, these treatments can add plumpness, improve shape, and create a tightening effect for a more pert backside.

Your results are instantly visible and can be enhanced with further sessions. As your body produces collagen naturally, your new beautifully rounded bum will be long-lasting!

As opposed to butt lift surgery, RF and fat freezing give you a natural, round shape to your bottom, without any of the pain, risks of scarring or the long recovery period.

PDO Thread Lift

The PDO (polydiaxone) thread lift uses dissolvable sutures composed of protein. These sutures can be used to lift loose tissue in various areas of concern, including the face and body. 

Because the threads give immediate support and then allow your body to create natural collagen in place of the sutures, PDO threads are a reliable way to get the butt lift you desire.

The sutures are strategically inserted where needed to create a lifted appearance and create your ideal buttock shape. Over time, they will then dissolve and be replaced by natural and strong collagen bonds, helping to maintain your new shape.

Results can unfold over 6-9 months, but you’ll be able to see a difference immediately and in the long term. PDO thread lifts require very little recovery, simply avoiding strenuous activity and alcohol for 48 hours after. 


Almost anyone can benefit from an EmSculpt butt lift. With absolutely no surgery needed, this body contouring procedure tones muscle while simultaneously reducing fat. That means a bigger, plumper, more natural-looking behind. 

The specially designed paddles are applied to the buttocks and generate enough stimulating power to equal 20,000 squats in one session alone. That means your butt gets a full workout while you lay back and relax!

Just like going to the gym and doing the work, Emsculpt can generate long-lasting and impressive sculpted results. Moreover, it specifically targets your glute and buttock muscles, making it the most effective butt lift workout available.
