Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is a popular procedure that gives people the rounded, lifted backside they've always wanted. Perhaps the results that the BBL surgery offers are appealing, but the surgery itself is not. Having a Brazilian Butt Lift is a significant investment that you may not be ready to make. As we've seen happen with other popular plastic surgery procedures, the BBL now has a non-surgical alternative. In addition to offering the Sculptra Butt Lift treatment, Dr. Baum also performs an entirely different non-surgical butt lift procedure. This one uses vacuum therapy!

What is Vacuum Therapy (Non-Surgical Butt-Lift)?
Vacuum therapy is reminiscent of the traditional cupping therapy that has been performed in certain cultures for centuries. Cupping, or vacuum therapy, involves placing an appropriately-sized "cup" against the skin and applying gentle, consistent suction. In traditional cupping, suction was created by a flame. Modern vacuum therapy is much more sophisticated, utilizing a controlled suction mechanism that ensures safety and efficiency. The vacuum therapy non-surgical butt lift is a convenient procedure that uses a suction device connected to two large suction cups. These are applied to each side of the buttocks where, when the machine is activated, engage the skin, connective tissue, fat, and muscle all at once. Vacuum therapy stimulates lymphatic drainage and blood flow, resulting in natural fat elimination, skin tightening, the smoothing of cellulite, and buttocks reshaping.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift?
The vacuum therapy process is so gentle and safe that it is appropriate for nearly every adult who wants to add some roundness and lift to their backside. To determine if you are an ideal candidate, Dr. Baum will perform a thorough consultation and evaluation of your fatty tissue and skin. The vacuum non-surgical butt lift is not approved for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. You may not be a good candidate if you have an active medical condition or have recently had surgery. In these cases, treatment may simply need to be postponed for a short time. Through your comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Baum will understand the nature of your muscle, fat, and skin. She can use the information obtained to determine an ideal number of treatment sessions to adequately retrain your fat and muscle tissue and also stimulate skin-tightening effects.
Are There Side Effects?
There are very few risks associated with vacuum therapy, which is yet another reason this treatment is quickly becoming the go-to for busy people! The non-invasive technique does not require any anesthesia and there are no products injected or even applied to the skin. The process is virtually pain-free, but it may result in some redness and swelling that takes a few hours to resolve.
How is Recovery From a Non-Surgical BBL?
You can expect to quickly resume your normal activities after your vacuum therapy appointment. You may feel slightly tingly or sore for a short time, but this should not interfere with your comfortable return to work and other tasks.
How Long Will the Results Last?
The vacuum therapy butt lift works somewhat like a good workout. It gradually increases muscle tone, skin tightness and elasticity, fat distribution, and lymphatic drainage. These actions all play into one another to shape the buttocks and smooth cellulite dimpling. With repeated treatments, which you can have as often as every few weeks, it's possible to build up to prolonged results that last approximately six months.
