Non Surgical Buttock Lift - Surgical vs Non Surgical

In recent years, an increasing number of women have opted for cosmetic surgery in their quest for more shapely and voluptuous buttocks.

But if you are not keen to go under the knife, then there are a number of non surgical buttock lift techniques which you may wish to consider.

What is a non surgical buttock lift?

A non surgical buttock lift is a buttock lift treatment that does not involve any invasive surgery.

Non surgical bum lift treatments work to plump out the skin, lifting and tightening the skin, improving the appearance and resulting in firmer, more youthful, and shapely buttocks.

What are the pros and cons of a non surgical buttock lift?

One of the biggest pros of a non surgical buttock lift is that the process is quick and involves zero downtime, meaning you can return to your day-to-day activities immediately after treatment. Surgical alternatives, such as the buttock lift or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), will require time off work and it can take up to six weeks to fully recover from the procedure.

However the downside of a non surgical buttock lift is that the results are typically not as long lasting as the surgical options. The results of a surgical buttock lift or BBL can be maintained if you don’t put on any weight, but a non surgical buttock lift will typically require follow up treatments in order to maintain the result.

If you are not ready to take the plunge with the surgical options, a non surgical bum lift is a great way of trying out what you would look like with a sculpted bottom.

What does a non surgical buttock lift involve?

Here at the Cadogan Clinic, we offer two main non surgical buttock lift treatments. They both involve injections around the buttocks.

Sculptra is an injection that stimulates the production of collagen. It is a popular facial treatment but can also be used to help contour other parts of the body, including the buttocks. The production of collagen can lead to the buttocks having a more sculpted appearance along with added volume. You can expect to see results from around six weeks post-treatment.

The results can typically last for up to two years, but with annual upkeep, you can enjoy the results of your non-surgical bum lift for as long as five or even 10 years.

Dermal fillers are another injectable solution which can be used in a non surgical buttock lift. The active ingredient in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance found in our bodies. Fillers can help fill out hollows and give a smoother and more toned appearance. Dermal fillers are very popular with those seeking a swift, non-surgical solution for sagging buttocks that have lost their shape and volume as the natural collagen levels deplete. You can expect to see the results from dermal fillers immediately, with the full results revealling themselves within a week of treatment.

The fillers we use here at the Cadogan Clinic are only temporary and last between six and 18 months. The treatment is reversible, so if you are unhappy with the result, the fillers can be dissolved and safely reabsorbed into the body. Alternatively, you may wish to have more fillers injected into the treatment area to ‘tweak’ the result of your non surgical buttock lift.

Surgical buttock lift vs non surgical buttock lift

As mentioned above, a surgical buttock lift produces long-lasting results and is easily the best option for someone who is looking for an effective solution to a sagging bottom. A non surgical buttock lift is a good temporary solution and is a great way to ‘try before you buy’ if you are considering taking the plunge and undergoing buttock lift surgery. There are two types of buttock lift surgery that we offer here at the Cadogan Clinic.

Buttock lift: A buttock lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift and reshape the buttocks, reducing volume, improving contours and giving the buttocks a more shapely appearance. A surgeon does this by removing any excess skin and fat before repositioning the remaining skin to give the buttocks a more toned and contoured appearance. There are four different surgical buttock lift techniques that we use here at the Cadogan Clinic, depending on the amount of sagging skin present.

A buttock lift is a great way to get rid of excess skin caused by genetics, ageing or dramatic weight loss.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL): In contrast to a buttock lift, a Brazilian Butt Lift is concerned with increasing the size of the buttocks, as well as lifting them to make them appear perkier. This is done by harvesting fat from another area of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, treating this fat and then injecting it into the buttocks, adding volume to the area. By using the patient’s own fat, this means our Brazilian butt lift procedure produces a natural-looking, and natural-feeling, result.

Unlike other cosmetic surgeons, the Cadogan Clinic does not use silicone enhancements or any other non-organic objects in our BBL procedure, meaning it is far safer for the patient.

Women opt for Brazilian butt lift surgery if they are unhappy with the shape and size of their buttocks and wish to restore the voluminous, perky buttocks they enjoyed in their youth. Alternatively a woman who may have a more slender physique, without many natural curves, may opt for a BBL to give her buttocks a more rounded, pronounced appearance.

Words from our clients:


Cadogan Clinic is an award-winning specialist cosmetic clinic, with a track record of delivering safe, high-quality cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures and we are home to several of London’s best buttock lift specialists.
