In a recent video on Tiktok, she said she is on silicon that lasts for eight months.
Kate Actress also said the procedure only proves effective and works if one learns how to control their food portion intake and workouts.
"If you don't learn portion control and how to eat light and move your body, utakuwa unafanya zero work. You still have to put in some work."
