Brazilian Butt Lift

Buttock Fat Implant

Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as buttock fat implant, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing excess fat from other parts of the body and transferring it to the buttocks to enhance their shape and size. However, despite its popularity, it is considered a high-risk procedure due to complications have been seen with even the most experienced surgeons.

In some cases, complications can be fatal, even in the hands of experienced and board-certified plastic surgeons.

As a result, Dr. Joel Studin, a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, approaches this procedure with caution. He only performs it in cases where there is an extreme deformity that requires correction, and where the potential risks are outweighed by the potential benefits. Dr. Studin uses the tumescent low-pressure liposuction technique, which involves injecting a solution of local anesthesia and other medications into the treatment area before removing the fat.

The fat is then processed and purified before being reinjected into the buttocks to add volume and improve the overall shape. Dr. Studin's careful approach, combined with his expertise and experience, helps to minimize the risks associated with this procedure while still achieving the desired results for his patients.

Step 01


Dr. Joel Studin performs the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure using tumescent low-pressure liposuction with reinjection of the fat into the buttocks. This technique minimizes trauma to the harvested fat, which results in a higher survival rate of the fat cells that are transferred to the buttocks. Dr. Studin uses advanced, state-of-the-art technologies to ensure optimal results and minimize risks associated with the procedure.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure typically takes around 2-3 hours to complete, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be harvested and the desired volume and contour of the buttocks.

Step 02


The recovery process for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or buttock fat implant procedure can vary from patient to patient. However, in general, patients can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the buttocks and liposuction areas for the first few days after the surgery.

Patients are usually advised to avoid sitting or lying on their back or buttocks for about two weeks after the surgery to allow the newly transferred fat cells to establish blood supply and adhere to the surrounding tissue. Instead, patients should rest on their sides or stomach to avoid pressure on the buttocks.

Patients should also avoid any strenuous activities, including exercise, for at least three to four weeks after the surgery to prevent complications and allow the body to heal properly.

Patients will be required to wear compression garments for several weeks to help minimize swelling and support the newly contoured buttocks.

Dr. Studin and his team will provide detailed instructions for post-operative care and follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and monitor progress. It's crucial that patients follow all instructions provided by their surgeon to minimize the risk of complications and achieve the best possible results.

The Results You Deserve

Patients typically see some immediate results after the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. However, the full results may take several weeks to become apparent as the swelling goes down and the body adjusts to the newly transferred fat. It is important to follow post-operative instructions carefully to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery. Patients should also maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, to help maintain the results of the procedure.
