Tighten, smoothen and lift loose,
sagging skin on the buttock area
On bubble butts, non-surgical bum lifts & Brazilian butt lifts
What are the causes of soft, "saggy" buttocks?
Lack of exercise, especially of the gluteus maximus muscle, excess calorie intake, sitting down for long periods of time and normal ageing result in skin looseness, the accumulation of excess fat, cellulite, water retention on the buttock area, leading to an enlarged and saggy/droopy bottom with puffy, spongy skin.
Squats are great for butt muscles, but they do nothing for skin
Dieting and liposuction on the butt area remove the excess fat but further worsen the saggy / spongy / droopy / puffy look and feel. Hip extensions and other exercises that target the "gluteus maximus" muscle are very helpful, as they lift the butt area and fill the void left by weight loss, thereby improving the shape and tone under the skin. However, exercises do nothing to address the problem of looseness, puffiness and sponginess on the skin itself.
What about the banana rolls?
The fat deposits underneath the butt (at the top of the thighs) are often called "banana rolls". Their surgical removal results in droopy bottom, as the banana rolls add support to the bum underneath. Not a good idea to remove them! The best solution to the issue of banana rolls is to have a strong monopolar radiofrequency treatment on both butt and banana rolls, in order to lift and tighten the skin in the overall area and to do LOADS of butt exercises for the gluteus maximus muscle, such as hip extensions, deadlifts (ensure you engage your core muscles!) and squats.
Butt lift surgery?
Only surgical removal of skin, can offer good results in areas that suffer from loose, saggy skin and obviously this is not applicable on the buttock area, as it leads to shape distortion of the butt and very unsightly scars. Butt lift surgery is better reserved only for overweight / obese women with quite a lot of excess skin, and it is not relevant to slim, normal weight or even "curvy" women with butt skin looseness.
FIllers can also be used to lift and fill areas on the butt, but as they are broken down, continuous "filling" is required every few months. This is the worst of all options.
Brazilian butt lift surgery:
good for 2-3 years, then things start looking South...
The addition of fat in the butt area (the so called "Brazilian bum lift") can improve the shape of the bum, but only temporarily: in 2-3 years the fat starts to accumulate sideways and "downwards". Fat is known to "eat away" the connective tissue around it, thereby causing the butt to become saggy, droopy and loose. Furthermore, the Brazilian butt lift cannot do anything for cellulite. So for 2-3 years the Brazilian bum lift is the best option, if performed on the right candidate by a good surgeon. But to maintain it for 10-15 years you must follow a permanent strict healthy diet and exercise regime, which few women do.
One last thing about Brazilian butt lifts (BBL). They have the highest mortality rate of all surgical cosmetic procedures: one in 3,000, as opposed to 1 in 5,000 for normal lipo and 1 in 100,000 for all surgery procedures in general, with two Brits dead because of BBL surgery already this year. Food for thought...
Bubble butt without surgery?
Non-surgical Brazilian bum lift?
Don’t be naive, don’t fall for fraudsters
Despite claims made by certain unscrupulous practitioners on Instagram, no machine and no non-surgical treatment in the world can add volume (=fat) to your bum to create the "bubble butt" / "Brazilian bum" look, out of a flat or a small bum.
The “Brazilian bum” / “bubble butt” look is only possible with surgical fat transfer (or, to a much lesser extent, with intensive gluteus maximus exercise for several months or even years).
You can indeed have a "non-surgical bum lift" with high intensity monopolar radiofrequency (not the low intensity bipolar RF advertised by most practitioners) or with squats and similar exercises, but NOT a "non-surgical Brazilian bum lift", as these practitioners advertise.
You cannot possibly increase bum fat with a machine that supposedly reduces fat - this is absurd! Such claims are only good PR for C-list celebrities and for titillating tabloid spreads - nothing else. Do not believe the lies and the ridiculous fake "before and after pictures" on Instagram.
The same applies to instant "bum lifting" results promised with only one session - this is pure fraud. The structure of your connective tissue does not change in minutes or in one session. It needs time (i.e. several weeks) and repeated stimulation (i.e. several treatments) to change long-term.
Furthermore, bum filler injections offer minimal and temporary results, as opposed to surgery, so they are not a good idea either. And suction cup bum enlargement, similar to suction cup breast enlargement, is a complete waste of time. I cannot believe that in 2019 people are still trying to enlarge their breasts or bum with suction cups. It beggars belief…
The LipoTherapeia approach
At LipoTherapeia we offer advanced, high intensity treatments and honest, science-based advice.
No shallowness, no preying on the naive and vulnerable with fake 'before and after' pictures of C-list celebrities, no ridiculous claims about ‘bubble butts’ and ‘non-surgical Brazilian bum lifts’, no miracle results with just one session “that keeps giving you results for four months”. Even though we use the strongest radiofrequency technology in the world, we still advise 6-12 sessions for best results - NEVER one session.
In summary, we do offer "non-surgical bum lift" treatments with the strongest technology available today, but we do not offer "non-surgical Brazilian bum lift" or “bubble butt” treatments, which do not exist.

Non-invasive, Non-surgical bum lift treatments
Cooled, high-power, monopolar radiofrequency:
the strongest bum lifting technology known today
Thankfully, technology can be used to tighten/lift the skin naturally, on non-overweight women, when surgery is not suitable. It is widely established today that the only butt lifting treatment that works, barring surgery, is cooled, high intensity, resistive, monopolar radiofrequency (the low power or bipolar radiofrequency treatments you see on fake "before and after photos" on Instagram performed by mobile therapists, are just a waste of time - no good radiofrequency machine is portable).
This type of radiofrequency focuses on the dermis and hypodermis, where the skin's large collagen structures and cellulite fat are located.. It helps tighten up the skin, boost circulation and remove cellulite, all at the same time.
It is also widely accepted that highly concentrated extracts of centella asiatica, hydroxyproline and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) are some of the strongest skin tightening natural actives available (low purity or low concentration actives don't work). Injection-free mesotherapy can help skin absorb those actives 500% more effectively and thereby can assist with cellulite/fat removal and skin firming, but only if a highly concentrated mix of several natural active ingredients is used.
And high-power ultrasound cavitation can help break down cellulite fatty deposits and cellulite by vibrating cellulite fat cells and literally bursting them up via a process called cavitation.
Deep Tissue Radiofrequency™ + Ultrasound + Injection-free mesotherapy with multiple natural actives
Meso-CRF® Body combines all these three technologies, at the same time, thereby offering maximum results at minimum cost and at the least possible time. Together with some gluteus muscle exercises it can work wonders for your bum. In addition to bum lifting / skin tightening, Meso-CRF® also works intensively on cellulite and even has a mild beneficial effect on stretch marks, so you get a combined benefit by the use of this technology.
