Butt Vacuum Therapy (also called butt cupping) is a technique inspired by a centuries-old Asian tradition called cupping therapy. Back then, the Chinese would use this method to create suction on the skin by means of a flame enclosed within a glass suction cup that consumed the oxygen in the suction cup, creating a pressure capable of sucking the skin. Although far from the purpose it serves today, the Chinese had already understood at the time the benefits of such a technique for the skin and muscles. Today, the main effect sought by the vacuum therapy butt lift is to reshape the buttocks into a more beautiful silhouette.
Needless to say, contemporary techniques for vacuum therapy butt lifting treatment are much more advanced and effective. The treatment, also known as Colombian sculpting or Colombian massage, is performed using a machine connected to suction cups that suck on the skin and flesh to stimulate blood flow and the lymphatic system. It also helps to firming-up the buttock muscles. This stimulation thus enhances natural fat elimination in the butt, reduces the appearance of cellulite and, above all, increases the volume of the buttocks! Note that these lifting treatment can also be done on the breast to do the vacuum breast lift.
However, recent times have seen the appearance of several more or less credible articles questioning the effectiveness of the treatment, which is why we decided to set the record straight by answering the question: Does butt vacuum therapy really work? We will share with you real testimonials from women who have received the vacuum therapy lifting treatment, as well as before and after photos showing the results over a long period of time. We will equally shed more light on the possible dangers and risks of vacuum therapy, and finally we will provide you with information about the different prices for the procedure.
Feedback and reviews on the results obtained after a vacuum therapy butt lift
Our team randomly contacted several women living in Canada, Belgium or France who have received vacuum butt lift treatments to find out their personal opinion about it. Here are their testimonials:
I’ve been trying out vacuum therapy for 15 days now, and I can actually see that my cellulite is disappearing. The practitioner applies it on the thighs and buttocks with anti-cellulite oil. I’m very happy, the result on me is surprising… because I’ve been hitting the gym three times a week for years and I couldn’t get rid of this cellulite. My cellulite disappears, the skin is much smoother and the bulge of my buttocks is magnificent! What more can I say? Should I have known that the result was this amazing I would have started long ago. Besides being effective, the procedure is painless, it’s a very relaxing moment I must say, especially while the suction cups are being placed… You even feel like falling asleep, at least for me. And once done, you feel good and especially beautiful.

I’m at my second butt cupping session, and so far I am very satisfied with the results: I love the shape the treatment gives. The treatment is painless and relaxing. At the end of the treatment, there is a slight tingling sensation, but nothing unsettling. It seems to last a while, but I am not so sure since it hasn’t been long enough since the last treatment and I’ve only had 2 sessions so far.

Vacuum therapy for buttocks was something I’d never heard of before! I really had lots of doubts about it, wondering what it was, if it hurt, if the results would kick in quickly or not. When I finally tried the Colombian Lift, it was painless and the results were immediate. I was really surprised… as a girl who’s never had a butt, and now with the life I had one… really amazing! I was also afraid that after a week the results would dissapear, but on the contrary I go back a few times and the results are always better each time and the result stays longer! I’m really happy to have discovered Colombian lifting.
– Alexandra Mercier, Esthétique SF beauty salon customer
After only one session my husband can already see the difference. During the treatment, I discovered places where I didn’t think I had cellulite… I mean, the technique soothes me until the next day when the aches and pains are felt. It does indeed have a long-lasting effect. Mind you, I don’t do sports but still got results, it’s crazy. Can’t wait for the next sessions.
– Lennie Lefebvre, Mouscron, Autantik SPA customer
I recently tried Colombian lifting procedures and I am completely satisfied, after only 3 sessions, I could easily see a difference in my buttocks and a reduction in my cellulite on the back of my thighs. Besides, the procedure is 100% painless and even pleasant, almost as satisfying as getting a butt massage from your boyfriend!
– Shanel Yu, Esthétique SF beauty salon customer
I just love the buttocks lifting treatment. Who wouldn’t by the way?? It’s a relaxing and soothing procedure, it’s painless & you get a super hot booty at the end! The pressure/suction feels like a little butt massage with immediate results. I loved this treatment and I’ll definitely carry on with it to overcome one of my complexes! I’ve had several sessions and I’m going to continue, not only out of pleasure, since it relaxes me, but also out of adoration, because today I have a firmer and more curvy butt. I love it, period!
– Chloé Lamoureux, Esthétique SF salon customer
I highly recommend the Colombian lifting for butt lift, not only does it give your buttocks the perfect lift, but it does it in less than no time at all. I’ve personally done it about a dozen times, and if you see the before and after pictures, the effects are clearly wonderful! I love my results and it’s a great start to working and getting the butt you’ve been dreaming of! The session begins with the application of oil on the buttocks and then both suction cups are placed. It may feel a little strange at first, but you’ll get used to it, some people even fall asleep during the procedure! I don’t think it hurts, but in the last 10 minutes, when the suction flow is high, it may pinch a little, otherwise there is no problem with this treatment and I strongly encourage you to try it right away if you have never done it before!

Our investigation also enabled us lay hands on “before and after” pictures of vacuum therapy for buttocks performed on women who had undergone several treatments. This provides a better analysis and visualization of the results than the images offered by most salons, which only show you the results with a photo taken a few minutes after the treatment.
The pictures reveal that the results are really progressive and that they are maintained from one session to the next. The treatment therefore seems to work very well.

As can be seen, in addition to providing a better gluteal contour, the butt sculpting procedure also helps reduce cellulite and fat tissue in your thighs and buttocks. This is mainly due to the fact that the esthetician will perform a series of techniques other than just applying the two suction cups on your buttocks to make them bigger. She will apply anti-cellulite oils on your body, give you a palpate-roll massage (effective in reducing cellulite), massage you with the suction cups, etc. These techniques will improve the general aspect of your body. It is therefore worth knowing that vacuum therapy is not only used to get a bigger bum.
