Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer and fat injection, is utilized in areas needing volume-enhancement, most commonly the face, breasts, buttocks, and hands. This procedure involves harvesting via liposuction unwanted, excess fat from other parts of their body and placing it into the buttocks and hips. It helps improve shape, lift the buttocks, and help the overall proportions of the body. It is a permanent and natural-appearing method that exchanges fat from areas of excess to areas that are lacking.

This multi-functional hydrating serum is instilled with Hyaluronic Acid and Copper Peptides to help enhance the appearance of skin. Skin is saturated with long-lasting deep hydration from Hyaluronic Acid and Kayo’s Omega Oil Blend, while skin is further layered with Kayo’s antioxidant rich Superfruit Blend, leaving skin energized and radiant. Founder's Notes: This body product was modeled after true high impact face serums, with the quintessential lighter feel and texture of a serum, perfect for layering based on your unique skin type and needs. Moisture is primarily delivered through Hyaluronic Acid (think deep water hydration) rather than topical oil hydration. This product can be used by itself for normal to oily skin, but is recommended under other Kayo products, such as The Body Beautiful Crème or Kayo's Cellular Repair Evening Oil for skin that needs deeper oil based hydration. When layering Kayo's body products use the same technique you would with face products - lighter products like serums first, heavier products like lotions and oils after.click to purchase

Are the results from a BBL permanent?
Yes. Once a fat cell is removed via liposuction, it is gone for good. Also, once that fat cell is placed in the buttocks via fat grafting, it is permanent. However, only a certain number of the fat cells that are injected will “take”. I tell my patients to expect that 70% of their fat graft will live. This is why I always overfill in order to compensate for this fact. It is one of the many reasons why you should see a body contouring expert for your BBL. It is also really important that you be at a weight that you like and that you can maintain. If you gain or lose weight after your BBL procedure, it may adversely affect your results and your butt may deflate.
Should I gain weight before my BBL?
No. I can’t tell you how many patients think that they need to gain weight first. The problem, of course, is that if you come in at a heavier weight and then you lose the weight, your newly plumped-up booty will deflate. I need to be able to assess your body proportion at a weight where you feel good and that you can maintain. This is crucial for long lasting results.
Is fat grafting to the buttocks painful?
The procedure itself is performed under general anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing. Most patients don’t find the recovery to be painful. But you will be sore, especially in the areas where I performed liposuction. The compression garment helps to reduce this discomfort. The biggest drag for my BBL patients is just staying off their buttocks. We are a society that sits a lot so changing these habits can be tough. But it is also better for the body not to sit so much which is why I always tell patients to embrace the first two weeks following surgery and use it as a time to create new, healthier habits. Oh, and catch up on Netflix.
Is Brazilian Butt Lift safe?
There has been a lot of media attention on safety and the BBL. This is a surgery that is safe as long as you see an experienced body contouring expert. Fat should only be grafted into the subcutaneous layer of fat in the buttocks. The problems occur when the surgeon doesn’t know his or her stuff and injects the fat too deep or tries to inject too much. I am incredibly conservative with my BBL procedures and have encountered no problems.
