Standard BBL Vs. Non Surgical Mini BBLBrazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a popular cosmetic procedure that increases the fullness, roundness, and projection of the buttocks, creating superb feminine curves. It silhouettes the hips to a perfectly feminine shape and makes the buttocks perkier and more attractive.

At Politis Plastic Surgery, we offer personalized BBL to help you achieve your desired butt size and shape, feel more comfortable in your clothing, and more confident in your appearance. And we do so with the least discomfort, minimal recovery time, and maximum results.

The benefits of getting a butt lift include:

  1. It is a perfect remedy for flat, sagging, or uneven butt.
  2. It creates superb curves.
  3. It delivers a more youthful and attractive look.
  4. It produces a more balanced, proportionate look.
  5. It reduces fat in other body areas when liposuction is part of the procedure.

Standard BBL vs. Non-Surgical Mini BBL

There are two broad options for enhancing the buttocks through the Brazilian Butt Lift: Standard Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and non-surgical mini Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).

With the standard BBL, you undergo a simple, minimally-invasive surgery that involves fat transfer to augment the buttocks and achieve results that last years or even decades. But with the non-surgical mini BBL, you go through a more subtle, non-invasive procedure.

So how do the two options compare?

  1. Standard Brazilian Butt Lift

A Standard Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a fat transfer procedure where fat harvested by liposuction from an area of the body with excess fat is processed for purity then injected into the butt. It is an alternative to implant-based butt augmentation, which increases butt size using silicone implants.

Standard BBL uses fat from the love handles, waist, back, hips, or thighs. Once harvested, the fat is centrifuged and filtered to separate it from blood and other non-fat materials. The processed fat cells are kept in syringes and then carefully injected at various levels into the buttocks.

Like with other fat transfer procedures, not all the injected fat cells survive. But the ones that survive produce a permanent result, creating a rounder, more voluptuous bottom. Plus, it has the added advantage of making the area where fat is obtained slimmer, tighter, and well-toned.

There will be some pain and recovery time involved after a standard BBL. Even so, the pain is easily managed using pain medication. As for the recovery time, you’ll need at least 10-14 days off work. Adequate recovery time is critical for lasting results. Follow the simple instructions your plastic surgeon will give you regarding what to do and what to avoid after the procedure.

Results of the standard BBL are apparent as soon as swelling, bruising, and soreness are gone. But it usually takes 3-6 months for the full results to set in and be fully visible. And if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, your buttocks will remain as shapely as ever for at least 10 years.

  1. Non-surgical Mini Brazilian Butt Lift

Non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic treatment that enhances buttock shape and size through injectable dermal fillers. It is a subtle lift that does not create more dramatic changes, but it can produce a more rounded, lifted, attractive butt.

In performing non-surgical butt enhancement, there are several safe and effective options.

Some of the most common options are:

  1. Sculptra

This dermal filler is one of the most effective in creating immediate, striking, and long-term results. The FDA-approved, injectable poly-L-lactic acid filler works by stimulating natural collagen production deep within skin layers, resulting in plump and firm buttocks.

A non-surgical mini BBL with Sculptra is completed as an outpatient procedure that takes one hour or less to perform. However, you may need several appointments to achieve your desired butt size. Once the treatments are completed, the results last up to 3 years.

  1. SculpSure

SculpSure is a proprietary device used to remove volume from areas you don’t want it to be, which in turn maximizes volume in areas you want it to be. The non-invasive body contouring butt lift procedure is done in a series of 25-minute treatments with results evident after 6-12 weeks.

  1. Radiesse

The use of Radiesse dermal filler is a rapid and effective sculpting procedure that reduces cellulite while increasing butt volume. It is performed in treatments spaced out every 4 weeks. Results are seen after the first 2 treatments and are long-lasting, seen for up to 5 years. As opposed to SculpSure, it does not reduce fatty deposits.

  1. Renuva and EZGEL

Renuva and EZGEL non-surgical mini BBL blends two different dermal fillers to achieve desired curvier buttocks. Both Renuva and EZGEL contain crucial growth factors that restore lost butt volume and enhance skin quality.

EZGEL is made by obtaining and spinning your own blood. Renuva is a product that contains collagen, growth factors, and proteins found in body fat. When the two are combined, they work together to create a more voluminous bottom while improving skin texture and tone.

  1. Vacuum therapy

Vacuum therapy is the suctioning of skin and fat from the buttocks in order to achieve desired volume and shape. The therapy involves the use of suctioning and ultrasound waves to break down fatty deposits, increase blood flow, and stimulate elastin and collagen production. The result is a firmer, rounder butt with less cellulite.

Standard BBL vs. Non-surgical Mini BBL: Which one is right for you?

None of the options suits everyone. While a standard BBL may be ideal for one person, non-surgical mini BBL may be perfect for another person.

For example, a standard Brazilian Butt Lift is ideal if you have a significant amount of sagging that needs surgery to remove the excess loose skin. It is also appropriate if you are looking for more dramatic results, want a significant increase in buttock size, or want results that last more than 5 years.

In contrast, non-surgical mini BBL is right for you if you don’t want to undergo surgery or if you don’t have sufficient fat required for a standard BBL.

At Politis Plastic Surgery, we treat you as a unique individual. So before you make the decision regarding the type of BBL to undergo, we encourage you to come for an in-person consultation.

During the consultation session, Dr. Effie Politis will explain the options and help you make the choice depending on the degree to which you want to enhance your buttocks. She has a reputation for excellence, unmatched surgical skills, and remarkable warmth, compassion, and dedication.

If you’re ready to enhance your buttocks and want treatment that will produce the results you expect, whether by standard BBL or non-surgical BBL, book your consultation today.
