The world of aesthetic procedures is always changing. There are new styles and new standards of what is considered beautiful and attractive.

When we think about the appearance of our rear end, round and nicely contoured buttocks are appealing and attractive.
To enhance this area of your body and feel more attractive you can accomplish this in two ways:

By getting a non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift with injectable Hyaluronic acid fillers, or

By getting a surgical Brazilian Butt Lift with fat transfer



Brazilian Butt Lift with injectable Hyaluronic acid fillers is one of the most popular procedures for buttocks enhancement.

Some patients lack volume in their buttocks because of genetics while others lose volume in this body area because of aging or weight loss.  Hyaluronic acid fillers can achieve a subtle improvement in the buttocks without having a surgical procedure. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by our bodies and it is important for providing firmness and plumpness to the skin. But the amount of Hyaluronic acid declines with age and therefore different body areas, including the buttocks start to look saggy and lose their volume. 

HA fillers are very safe, natural substances that hydrate the skin and give more volume to saggy areas. HA fillers used in BBL procedure are of the highest quality and effectively contour and add definition to the patient’s buttocks.

How It Works


This advanced treatment achieves nothing but long-lasting and natural-looking results. It is one of the most wanted treatments in the aesthetic world. The doctor injects Hyaluronic acid into the patient’s buttocks in order to make it better shaped and enhance its size. The HA fillers that are used in this procedure have the same ingredients as dermal fillers for the face. But the difference between them is that BBL HA fillers are more concentrated and have a higher molecular size and therefore provide more volume. 

The benefit of this procedure is that it achieves immediate results – the patient’s buttocks are lifted and more voluminous. With just a couple of sessions and minimal downtime, the patient gets a perkier posterior.

BBL with fillers procedure shapes the buttocks and adds curves, improves cellulite dimples and corrects hip dips. It also improves the general quality of the skin without scars, incisions or long recovery period. 

This minimally invasive treatment is performed with the most advanced technique. The doctor uses a unique cannula technique of injecting to enhance healthier skin and trigger the body’s natural collagen production. The HA fillers are injected into different areas of the buttocks to achieve the desired appearance. As a result, the buttocks appear rounder and fuller. 

BBL with fillers is a great solution for patients who want to avoid surgical procedures. The patients can restore the volume of their rear end, which is very hard to achieve with exercising. This treatment can also firm saggy skin or add volume to the flattening buttocks. 


BBL with fillers is very popular because it offers a lot of benefits and achieves brilliant results. It is minimally invasive and is performed with just a local anesthetic. 

It is an awesome solution for patients who can’t achieve the desired buttock shape just with exercise. 

It doesn’t require a long downtime and is perfect for patients who wish to avoid surgical procedures like BBL with implants. It is also great for patients who don’t have enough excess fat for the standard fat transfer Brazilian Butt Lift surgical procedure. There is only a minor risk of scars and the side effects are minimal. 

If in any case, the patient doesn’t like the outcome of the procedure, the injected fillers can be easily dissolved with a dissolving solution. 

This procedure enables patients to add more volume to their naturally flat buttocks or subtly lift their saggy buttocks because of weight loss. The patients can also smooth out the cellulite dimples they have on their buttocks. This treatment can also improve hip dips or increase the hips to give the patient an hourglass silhouette. 

The results are long-lasting and natural-looking. The best part is that the results are visible right after the treatment and continue to improve. 



    The first step is having a consultation with Lucia Clinic’s doctor. The doctor explains the treatment in detail and examines the patient’s targeted body area - he may mark the areas on the patient’s buttocks to show where he will inject the fillers and what results he wishes to achieve. The doctor keeps in mind the patient’s goals and expectations and creates a customized treatment plan. The treatment plan includes the amount of fillers that the patient needs to achieve the desired results.

    Generally, there are 4 different female buttocks shape types - round, V-shaped, heart-shaped and square. Together with the patient, the doctor determines which shape the patient currently has and which shape would be the best to achieve with the procedure.

    The patient should be completely open with the doctor and tell him about his/her previous medical history and the current medications or dietary supplements. Some medications can interfere with the recovery and cause excessive bruising for example. These medications are pain killers like ibuprofen and aspirin or Vitamin C, A, E, fish oil and others. It is recommended to stop taking these medications a week prior to the treatment.


    Before the procedure, the patient’s targeted area is carefully cleaned and prepared. The patient recieves a local anesthetic to make the procedure less uncomfortable. After that, the doctor starts injecting HA dermal fillers with a special thin cannula. This technique ensures minimal discomfort and reduces the risk of bruising. The cannula needs a minimal entry point on both sides of the patient’s buttocks, and the fillers are administered over the gluteal muscle and in the backside of the tights.

    When the fillers are injected, the doctor sculpts the buttocks by massaging the treated area and achieves the desired shapes and fulness. The results are immediately visible, but they improve even more in 2 to 4 weeks. Finally, the doctor explains the aftercare recommendations.

    The procedure time is relatively short - it can be over in an hour depending on the size that the patien wishes to achieve.

    Eventhough BBL with fillers involves injectables it is minimally uncomfortable and most patients tolerate it well.


    After the treatment, downtime usually lasts for 7 days. The patient can then resume normal everyday activities. There are some minor side effects like bruising and swelling in the targeted area as well as soreness in the gluteus area. These sensitivities should end in a week. The doctor usually recommends sleeping on the stomach for 2 weeks or until the patient can see the full effect of the procedure.

    It is also recommended to avoid strenuous exercise like working out in the gym, and sun exposure and tanning beds for 3 weeks. The patient should also avoid butt shaping exercises for 6 weeks.

    Other recommendations include avoiding strenuous exercise like working out in the gym for a week, avoiding sun exposure and tanning beds for 3 weeks and avoiding butt shaping exercises for 6 weeks.


    The results of BBL with fillers treatment might vary because each patient is different. Some patients may need 2 to 3 sessions to achieve the desired shape of their buttocks.

    Overall, this treatment can drastically enhance the shape and size of the patient’s butocks. The results include completely natural-looking, rounder and perkier rear end.

    The results are long-lasting and the effects can be seen from 18 to 24 months. The patient can then get an additional touch-up treatment to maintain the results.
