Overview of What a Non-Surgical Bum Lift Means

A non-surgical butt lift involves injecting dermal filler into the targeted areas around the buttocks to achieve a perkier and more voluminous appearance, while correcting hip dips. 

After treatment, patients can enjoy immediate results and are able to return to daily activities on the same day.

What to Expect from a Non-Surgical Bum Lift Procedure

A non-surgical bum lift typically takes an hour to perform, and does not require anaesthetic, though numbing cream can be applied for your comfort. 

First, the targeted areas are identified where dermal filler will be injected in order to achieve a desired shape. A cannula is then used to carefully place the dermal filler into these areas, massaging the area to carefully guide the product into place. 

Non-Surgical Bum Lift Treatment Options

At CREO, we use HYAcorp dermal fillers to effectively lift and augment the shape of the buttocks and correct the appearance of hip dips. One of the major benefits of HYAcorp fillers is that they are made from biphasic hyaluronic acid that form larger particles, increasing the longevity of their lifting effects.

Alternative, non-surgical treatments include electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), where an electrical current is sent through the skin, causing the gluteal muscles to contract. In doing so, the muscle tissue begins to remodel and grow, creating more definition and muscle tone. However, the effectiveness of this treatment is limited when compared to dermal filler. 

Benefits of Non-Surgical Bum Lifts Over Surgical Procedures

There are several key benefits of a non-surgical lift when compared to surgical treatments:

Enhances Natural Curves & Volume

HYAcorp fillers help to enhance the natural curves of the body by adding smaller amounts of volume. A non-surgical butt lift, therefore, produces more subtle and natural-looking effects for saggy butt cheeks compared to surgical procedures.

Safer Compared to Some Surgical Alternatives

As the hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers is a substance naturally produced by the body, the risk of allergic reactions is minimal. In addition, the avoidance of anaesthetics means that associated risks are avoided. 

At CREO, we go one step further and are the only clinic to use an ultrasound machine to carefully guide the dermal filler into its intended position. This ensures no fluid enters the gluteal muscles during the body augmentation procedure which can cause serious complications. 

Shorter Recovery Time

One of the major benefits of non-surgical treatment is that minimal downtime is needed. After treatment, patients are able to immediately return to daily activities which is ideal for patients with a busy lifestyle.  

Minimal Discomfort

A non-surgical lift only requires a series of small injections in the buttock that are relatively well tolerated by patients. As a result, anaesthetic is not required, and any associated complications are therefore avoided. 

Ideal Candidates for Non-Surgical Bum Lifts in the UK

Patients in good health who wish to add additional volume to their buttocks to contour and lift the area are ideal candidates for the non-invasive procedure. In addition, patients who wish to correct hip dips by adding small amounts of volume, or who want to avoid surgical incisions can benefit from this treatment. 

Who Shouldn’t Get a Non-Surgical Bum Lift

Patients seeking permanent results are not good candidates for a non-surgical butt lift. In addition, those who lack significant volume in the treated area or have a lot of skin laxity may require more intensive, surgical buttock augmentation procedure. 

Recovery Time for Non-Surgical Bum Lifts

One of the major benefits of a non-surgical lift is that patients can return to daily activities immediately, as minimal downtime is required. This makes it a great option for patients with a busy lifestyle. 

However, patients should avoid exercise for one week after treatment to allow time for the fillers to settle into their position.

Post-Treatment Care & Maintenance

Patients must follow the aftercare guidance provided by their doctor, which is essential in allowing for the best possible results and preventing complications. This includes keeping the injection sites clean to avoid infection, and avoiding placing excess pressure on the buttocks for the first week while the fillers settle into position. 

Potential Side Effects & How to Manage Them

Patients may experience some redness and swelling around the buttocks initially, which should gradually subside as the body heals. A cool compress can be applied to the area to manage any itchiness and inflammation, as well as gently massaging the area.
