Fat transfer (otherwise known as fat grafting) is a process that involves harvesting fat cells from other parts of the body and injecting them into the treatment site. This is done to increase the volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, breasts, and butt. Fat transfer can also help reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars. While results are long-lasting, they should not be considered permanent. LEARN MORE ›

I have been researching fat transfer to the butt for years. I am turning 31 this year and finally want to treat myself to the procedure.

Originally was looking to have procedure done in NYC. The office turned me off a few ways. I went back to board and considered traveling and I found Yily.

I was going to add Lam regularly to get Botox on my forehead and around the eyes. I was very happy and looked good. In the last visit he tried really hard to get me to try fillers around my eyes.

I was born with what I feel is a mild case of Poland Syndrome, but I am missing a right pectoral muscle. This is pretty common in males with Poland Syndrome. I looked at several options, including an implant to correct the asymmetry on the right side of my chest. After many hours of research... READ MORE

Very pleased with the result. I'm 9 weeks post op. I feel like my PS took an eraser and took off ten years! Minimal bruising, very unnoticeable. Significant swelling for two weeks. Follow post op care and be patient. The lips reaborb quickly so I'm going back for additional fat insertion. Each... READ MORE

I did the eyebrow lift, and fat transfer to all my face. I did not get any of the results that Dr. K and his staff promised me to have after the surgery. I asked Dr. K why, he answered me because he didn't put any fat in my face just on my temple and upper eye. But, I payed for full face fat... READ MORE

I'm having a rhinoplasty done and at the same time transfering fat to under my eyes. They have always been sunken in and dark.

Before I can take 10 yrs out of my real age and still everyone would believe it. But it came to the point that I can't lie about my age anymore and needed help. After some research I found Dr. Chase Lay who is an expert for fat transfer procedure among all other things. After initial... READ MORE

As you've probably read from those who have had horrible fat transfer results, the right doctor is absolutely crucial. There is nothing scarier than looking in the mirror and not recognizing the reflection, or seeing someone that you think is hideous. I didn't quite realize this before my... READ MORE

I received fat transfer to my feet not for cosmetic purposes but because I had destroyed the fat in my feet with multiple steroid injections I received for Morton's Neuroma.
