The non-surgical BBL is the perfect treatment to reshape and refine the contours of your buttocks without risky and invasive surgery. Collagen stimulating injections to the butt can add immediate volume which is then replaced with collagen over 6-8 weeks. Generally, at least two treatments are required, and results can last many years, with only small maintenance treatments required once you achieve your desired size and shape.

A non surgical BBL can improve:

  • the general shape of your butt;
  • hip dips and hollow areas;
  • stretch marks and cellulite;
  • the size of your buttocks;
  • the quality of the buttock skin.

Some people are not candidates for surgical BBL procedures, including those who lack significant fat tissue. Be wary of those who advise you to gain weight for a surgical BBL, as when you lose the weight after your procedure, you may lose the result.

The non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift provides a treatment option for those looking for a butt augmentation without surgery.

A filler butt lift without surgery in Melbourne

If you are concerned about the shape or size of your buttocks, you are not alone. Millions of men and women around the world are looking for a way to improve their behind. Until now, invasive surgery with implants or liposuction with fat grafting has been the only option. Recent developments in cosmetic injectables mean that there is now a safe, non-invasive and no downtime alternative to improve the shape and size of your butt using dermal fillers in Melbourne. Having a non-surgical butt lift with collagen-stimulating injections in Melbourne is a great treatment option for people who would like a fuller, shapelier and smoother bum, but who want to avoid the risks and downtime of surgery.

You’ll see instant results, and over time, the body will produce collagen, giving a more long-lasting effect. Most people need around two treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart, and the best long term results are achieved by maintaining the treatment every one to two years.

The treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete, and there is generally no significant downtime.

Why do people want a bigger butt?

There are a number of reasons why people explore options to get a bigger bum. Recent beauty trends have led to a fuller and more curvy figure becoming more popular. Some people find that the shape of their behind doesn’t match the rest of their body, and so look for treatment options to improve their proportions. Whatever the reason, the treatment options to change the shape of the butt include the following:

  • Surgical butt implants. These are invasive and expensive, but achieve predictable increases in shape and size.
  • Liposuction with fat transfer. this surgical procedure has one of the highest risks of dying during to process of all surgeries. The amount of fat that survives is very variable and unpredictable, from 20-80%.
  • Dermal filler injections with hyaluronic acid. This is straightforward and can achieve reasonable increases in size, however, there are a number of risks and high quantities of dermal filler is needed to see a satisfactory result.
  • Collagen stimulating injections. These are the safest treatment option and are ideal for those who want to avoid surgery, those with minimal body fat to transfer to the butt, and for people who want natural and long-lasting results. Generally, 2-3 treatments are needed, with the volumising effect lasting 18-24 months. The body will also produce collagen, giving a more stable result as well as improvements to the skin. The collagen can last many years.

When deciding on the best treatment option, you must consider the risks, downtime, recovery, predictability and your budget. Collagen stimulating injections (known as the non-surgical butt lift or BBL) are the preferred option for most people.

  • Partake in regular exercise that focuses on building the gluteal muscles.

For those that still need a more pronounced result, the treatments that can help add shape and size to the butt are:

  • Non-surgical butt lift injections with collagen-stimulating fillers.
  • Fat transfer to the butt (known as a Brazilian butt lift).
  • Surgical butt implants.

What are hip dips?

Hip dips are a common concern affecting many people. They are the inward depression on either side of the pelvis. The appearance of hips dips can affect your confidence, and make you feel uncomfortable wearing certain clothes. Hips dips are most commonly caused by genetics and are due to the general shape of your pelvis, and the distribution of fat around the pelvic area.

Can you actually get rid of hip dips?

There are a number of treatment options to correct hip dips. Each treatment option has its positives and negatives, including how much of an improvement can be achieved. Some options are riskier than others. Most at-home treatments for hip dips are disappointing and can make you feel like there is no solution. The treatment options for hip dips are:

  • buttock implants: this is invasive surgery with higher risk and cost, but can provide a consistent and predictable result;
  • fat transfer (commonly called a Brazilian Butt Lift): this is a minimally invasive procedure that may get a pronounced result, but that can vary significantly from person to person. The BBL also has a very high risk of mortality (approximately 1 in 3000), may require multiple treatments, and will only work if you have fat to take from other areas of the body;
  • non-surgical butt lift with Sculptra: this is the safest option, and is non-invasive. The results work through collagen stimulation and improve over time. You will generally need 2-3 treatments over 4-6 months, and the results are generally modest. The Sculptra butt lift works best for smaller hip dips.

Learn about the treatment options to augment your butt and correct hip dips

There are a few options to enhance your behind. The best treatment for you will depend on a number of considerations. A non-surgical BBL with collagen-stimulating injections is often the preferred method for a safe, and long-lasting enhancement of the butt.

Book your treatment

Treatment to enhance the buttocks:

  • collagen stimulating injections: no downtime and almost without discomfort. This treatment is ideal for those looking to maintain healthy skin texture and tightness, improve cellulite, and naturally enhance the curves of their buttocks.
  • dermal fillers: injecting very high quantities of dermal filler can reshape the behind. However, using such high volumes of foreign material (often over 100 mls) can lead to the body rejecting the filler (a foreign body reaction).
  • fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift): this treatment involves undergoing liposuction and re-injecting the fat into the behind to add volume and enhance the shape. It is a higher risk option, has reasonable downtime, and the results can be unpredictable as not all of the transferred fat may survive. Those without much body fat will also not be candidates for this treatment, as there will not be enough fat to transfer. Furthermore, weight gain or loss in the future may affect your results.
  • buttock implants: this is the most invasive option with considerable downtime. However, it is the most consistent way to reshape your behind with permanent results.
  • body sculpting devices: these are safe and no downtime treatment options that can reshape the areas around the butt, making the butt itself appear more balanced and projected without directly changing it.

Understanding your treatments

How collagen stimulating injections can augment and rejuvenate your butt

Collagen is a protein that gives natural tissue structure, strength and support. Stimulating collagen with injections increases the strength and elasticity of the skin and connective tissue, and can create natural volume over time. Collagen lasts many years, and can therefore provide powerful and long-lasting enhancements in reshaping, adding volume and improving the skin and tissue quality of the buttocks.

When injecting collagen stimulators into the butt, you will notice an immediate correction in the shape. This is not the result, rather it is the fluid that carries the collagen-stimulating product. Over a number of months, the body produces collagen in the treated areas. This adds volume, tightens the skin, and improves the quality of the tissue, giving a gradual rejuvenation and reshaping effect. Generally, at least two treatments are required. Further treatments can be used for more pronounced results after two to three months if you would like a more noticeable butt augmentation.

An alternative approach is to undergo collagen stimulating injections to the behind once every two to five years. This will help to keep your behind perky, toned and youthful as you age. Both treatment approaches to non-surgical buttock enhancement are popular options around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a non-surgical butt lift?

A non-surgical butt lift (also known as a non-surgical BBL) is a walk-in walk-out in-office procedure that uses injections of a specialised collagen-stimulating product to add volume and collagen to the buttocks. By injecting collagen-stimulating products into the buttocks in key areas, you can improve the size, shape and contour of your buttocks, and improve cellulite and stretch marks. Collagen stimulating injections to the buttocks take around 30 minutes, and there is no downtime. You can return to most activities immediately after your procedure. The final results generally take 6-8 weeks as the collagen is produced. Most people need a minimum of 2 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart for the best results. Maintenance treatments can be performed every 1-2 years, are much more conservative, and help to improve the result over time.

Non surgical BBL vs surgical BBL

Thenon-surgical BBL is a safe, no downtime procedure that takes around 30 minutes with minimal discomfort, and simple aftercare instructions. A surgical BBL involves liposuction and the transferring of fat to the buttocks. This involves anaesthetic, swelling, bruising and downtime, and higher risks compared to thenon-surgical BBL. However, it can achieve more pronounced changes to the shape and size of your buttocks compared to anon-surgical BBL. Thenon-surgical BBL is perfect for lean women who do not have any fat to transfer to the buttocks, or for those who do not want to undergo an invasive procedure with higher risk and more downtime.

How many treatments will I need for my non-surgical BBL?

For the best results, 2 -3 treatments, performed 6-8 weeks apart are required for the best results. The effect can last years, and maintenance treatments can be performed every 1-2 years as needed. Generally, each additional treatment will improve the results. Accordingly, those who adhere to maintenance treatment find that over the years, the shape of their buttocks continues to improve and look firmer and more perky and toned.


What should I expect during a non-surgical BBL?

A non-surgical BBL is a simple and straightforward procedure with almost no discomfort. A strong anaesthetic is used to ensure a comfortable procedure. During your non-surgical BBL, you can expect the following:

  • markings will be made to ensure accurate placement of the collagen-stimulating product;
  • the skin will be extensively cleaned;
  • small injections will be used to administer the collagen-stimulating product to the marked areas of the buttocks.

Following your procedure, you can return to most activities immediately. It is normal to experience some mild bruising, swelling and redness after your procedure. These settle quickly over a few days.


Is a non-surgical BBL safe?

There are minimal risks involved when having a non-surgical BBL. Occasionally, there is some tenderness and swelling, that are generally mild and resolve after a few days.

What are the risks of a non-surgical BBL?

The non-surgical butt lift is very safe. Aside from mild bruising, swelling and tenderness, there is a very rare risk of small nodule formation. This occurs in areas of high collagen stimulation. These nodules can be prevented by massaging the treated area after your treatment. If you do develop small nodules, they will not cause any harm, and usually resolve on their own.


How long does a non-surgical BBL last?

Results of the non-surgical BBL can last up to 2 years. Maintenance treatments can be performed every 1-2 years to improve the result over time and prolong the effect.

Does the non-surgical BBL get good results?

Most people see a 20-25% improvement after 2-3 non-surgical BBL treatments with the results improving over 6 weeks as your body makes collagen.


Are there specific aftercare instructions after a non-surgical BBL?

The most important instruction following your procedure is to adhere to regular massage of the treatment area to ensure smooth distribution of the collagen-stimulating buttock injections. You must massage to the treatment area for 5 minutes, 5 times per day, for 5 days. Failure to massage the area adequately may lead to an uneven distribution of the product and a higher risk of small nodules under the skin.

Is there downtime after a non-surgical BBL?

In general, there is minimal downtime after a non-surgical BBL. You should avoid strenuous exercise for 7 days to ensure swelling settles quickly.

Can I exercise after my non-surgical BBL?

You should avoid strenuous exercise for 1 week after your non-surgical BBL. Low impact exercise such as walking is fine the day after your procedure.
