Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
If your aesthetic goals include obtaining a plumper, more shapely lower body contour, a non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift can be an excellent treatment option to contour the buttocks without a surgical procedure. While a traditional Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fatty tissue to rejuvenate and volumize the backside, collagen-boosting injectables can provide a dynamic, more subtle enhancement of the buttocks with the convenience and predictability of a minimally invasive treatment. Plus, this non-surgical technique achieves almost immediate volume correction as well as long-lasting results. Dr. Jerome Liu and Dr. Tom Liu, our board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeons, can perform buttock enhancement using volumizing injectables to achieve your desired physique.

What is a Non-Surgical BBL?
A non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift at Liu Plastic Surgery can enhance the volume, projection, and shape of the buttocks using Radiesse®—a volumizing filler designed to lift and define the areas of injection. While Radiesse® has been traditionally injected to enhance volume in the face and hands, the product’s virtually immediate plumping capabilities can make it a highly effective choice for buttock contouring. Radiesse® is composed of tiny calcium microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. The water-based gel is naturally absorbed by the body over time, allowing the calcium microspheres to provide a framework from which new collagen can grow. In turn, Radiesse® not only improves the shape of the buttocks, but also stimulates your natural collagen for a prolonged effect.
Who is a Candidate for a Non-Surgical BBL?
A Brazilian Butt Lift with Radiesse® can benefit any patient who seeks to plump the buttocks without implants or fatty tissue injection. Good candidates for a non-surgical BBL should also:
- Have realistic expectations for what treatment can achieve
- Be relatively healthy with no uncontrolled medical conditions
- Have no ongoing skin infections
The microspheres in the Radiesse® solution are also biocompatible with natural substances in the body, so there is usually no need for an allergy test. Our plastic surgeons will review your medical history and listen to your concerns to determine the best treatment to achieve your ideal buttock contour.
How is a Radiesse® BBL Performed?
A Brazilian Butt Lift with Radiesse® is performed in our treatment rooms and typically takes no longer than 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the extent of augmentation desired. Using a fine cannula, Dr. Liu will inject Radiesse® into targeted areas to improve the contour, shape, and symmetry of the buttocks according to your goals. Injections are well-tolerated by patients and our doctors will do everything they can to further reduce discomfort during treatment. Swelling and/or bruising after the procedure may occur, but these reactions are normal and should subside naturally.
How Long Does a Radiesse® BBL Last?
The volume and contour improvements achieved with a Radiesse® BBL can be immediately noticeable. The filler should provide a plumping effect for approximately three months after injections, after which the collagen-regenerating properties of Radiesse® can promote new tissue growth. The duration of results vary based on each patient’s metabolism, but many patients can achieve results lasting up to 12 months. Touch-up treatments are also available at our San Jose, Los Gatos, and Sacramento practices to further prolong the rejuvenative effects of a non-surgical BBL.
