From nonsurgical fat removal to muscle toning and best cellulite treatments in NYC, we have the treatments you need to get ready for fun in the summer sun. Keep in mind that optimal results take 6 to 12 weeks – book your consultation now to get your individualized treatment plan. 

Read on for tips on how to create a perkier, shapelier backside and smooth away cellulite with the latest nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. 

Nonsurgical Buttlift

A nonsurgical butt lift, or nonsurgical BBL, combines several nonsurgical treatments over a period of 8 to 12 weeks to significantly improve the shape and tone of your derriere.

Patients can expect mild improvement of the buttocks’ shape and volume, but not significant augmentation equivalent to a surgical butt lift. 

It is important to have realistic expectations when it comes to nonsurgical butt enhancement. Meet with an experienced cosmetic provider to discuss your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals. An individualized, multi-pronged approach over an extended period of time will provide the most optimal, natural-looking results.

Below are some of the most effective ways to nonsurgically lift and sculpt the buttocks.


EMSCULPT NEO has been FDA-cleared for muscle building, fat reduction and skin tightening for multiple areas, including those that are key to achieving a lifted, contoured appearance for the butt: buttocks, inner and outer thighs and the love handles. 

This treatment uses synchronized radiofrequency (RF) to permanently reduce fat by up to 30% and tighten skin, simultaneously with HIFEM to build muscle with 20,000 contractions per 30-minute treatment.

Besides making your booty beach-ready, it helps strengthen the treated area, increasing muscle mass by up to 20%.

A full treatment consists of 4 to 6, 30-minute sessions per treatment area.

Biostimulatory Fillers

To address specific areas of concern such as hip dips, volumizing fillers like Sculptra® and hyperdiluted RADIESSE® can be used to refine Emsculpt NEO results. 

These biostimulatory fillers add some immediate volume to the area with optimal results appearing over the course of 3 months. They work by prompting the body to boost its collagen production and plump up the buttocks with gradual, natural-looking results. 

Cellulite Treatments

Whether you’re on the beach or in your favorite leggings, cellulite can be a lingering challenge. Affecting over 90% of women, cellulite is often resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, there are several nonsurgical cellulite treatments available to smooth and tone the appearance of the buttocks and thighs.


Aveli is a minimally-invasive, FDA-cleared, one-time treatment for cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. During the procedure, Dr. Levine slides a handheld device beneath the skin to mechanically cut the septa, or connective-tissue bands, that pull down on the skin’s surface, contributing to the dimples we call ‘cellulite.’

Emtone utilizes targeted pulses to break up fibrous bands beneath the skin and improve circulation, while synchronized radiofrequency RF tightens skin. This treatment is often combined with EMSCULPT NEO for a total result.

Gradual reduction in the appearance of cellulite is seen over 4-6 sessions.

Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

There are three leading options for nonsurgical fat reduction – Coolsculpting, EMSCULPT NEO, and Sculpsure.


We all have stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. To sculpt under the buttocks for a more defined look, CoolSculpting can reduce the fat up to 25%.

This is a non-invasive fat freezing treatment that uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate diet-resistant fat cells. The frozen fat cells are naturally flushed out of the body over time. Most patients see optimal results after 1-3 CoolSculpting treatments per area.


In addition to addressing the glutes, EMSCULPT NEO is FDA-cleared for nonsurgical fat reduction on the abdomen, love handles, arms and thighs.


This FDA-cleared treatment uses laser technology to precisely target and permanently destroy fat cells. It is used to reduce stubborn fat pockets on the flanks, back, thighs, stomach and chin. 

Patients can expect to need 4-6, 25-minute SculpSure treatment sessions per area to see optimal fat reduction. Results are gradual but can be long-lasting.
