The Recovery Process: What to Expect After Non-Surgical BBL


Non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) using dermal fillers has gained popularity as a safe and effective procedure to enhance the buttocks without the need for surgery. At botonics Plastic Surgery Group, located in the prestigious Harley Street in central London, we take pride in our exceptional reputation, backed by more than 500 five-star reviews on Trustpilot. In this blog post, we will guide you through the recovery process after non-surgical BBL, giving you a clear understanding of what to expect during your healing journey.

Immediate Post-Procedure Period

After the non-surgical BBL procedure, you can expect some immediate changes to your buttocks. The dermal fillers will add volume and contour to enhance the shape of your buttocks. However, it is normal to experience mild swelling, redness, and bruising in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and will subside within a few days.

Managing Discomfort and Swelling

During the recovery period, it is essential to manage any discomfort or swelling. Your practitioner may recommend over-the-counter pain medications to alleviate any pain. Applying ice packs to the treated area can help reduce swelling and promote faster healing. It is crucial to follow your practitioner’s instructions regarding post-procedure care, including the use of compression garments.

Restricted Activities and Downtime

While non-surgical BBL is a minimally invasive procedure, it is important to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during the initial stages of recovery. Your practitioner will provide specific guidelines on activity restrictions and the duration of downtime based on your individual case. It is crucial to follow these instructions to optimise your healing process and ensure the best possible outcome.

Long-Term Results and Follow-up Care

Non-surgical BBL with dermal fillers offers immediate results, but it’s important to understand that the outcome is not permanent. Over time, the dermal fillers will gradually metabolise, and you may require touch-up treatments to maintain your desired results. Your practitioner will schedule follow-up appointments to assess your progress and recommend any necessary treatments or adjustments.

Psychological and Emotional Well-being

The recovery period after non-surgical BBL involves not only physical healing but also emotional well-being. It is common to experience a range of emotions during this time, including excitement, impatience, and even mild discomfort. It is essential to have realistic expectations and trust the healing process. Remember that the final results of non-surgical BBL may take a few weeks to fully manifest, so be patient and allow your body to adjust.


The recovery process after non-surgical BBL is relatively straightforward, and most individuals can resume their daily activities within a short period. By understanding what to expect during the recovery phase, you can optimise your healing and ensure the best possible results.
