43-year-old female following VASER high-definition liposuction
Fat transfer cost is one of the most popular requests by clients looking for cosmetic body contouring procedures. Our patients are often shocked when I explain that we perform fat transfers free! This is because the major factor in a fat transfer surgery is the liposuction portion of the surgery. If patients are willing to have their body fat removed, we perform the fat injections at no additional cost. This blog was written to explain why for Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries, the portion of your surgery that involves fat transfer treatment is complimentary when you elect to perform a 360 cosmetic procedure.
How much is the fat transfer cost?
As SurgiSculpt surgeons, our fees and fat transfer costs are determined mostly by the amount of work and scope of surgery required. The process of inserting the fat back into your bum to create the ideal buttock shape is relatively expedited compared to the fat removal process, which may take several hours. This is why the most cost of fat transfer is determined by fat retrieval to improve body contours rather than the transfer.
For example, fat transfer cost in a male body contouring case requiring only chest grafting may be less expensive than a traditional HD Brazilian buttock lift surgery. This conclusion follows that the fat required for transfer to the chest is approximately 100 to 200 cc’s, whereas it may be as great as 2000cc for the buttocks.
Another factor that determines the average fat transfer cost is anesthesia fees. This also goes hand in hand with the volume and time required to complete the liposuction, as mentioned earlier. In contrast to a BBL, a facial fat transfer procedure may involve minimal liposuction and be safely performed under local anesthesia to reduce the total fees.
Additionally, not all cases that require general anesthesia are priced equally. Again, fat transfer cost depends on the time of surgery and will be priced higher for longer surgical cases.
Transferring the fat back into your body is a quick process that does not affect the final price. I highly encourage my patients to consider reinjecting the fat removed by liposuction into their bodies. This treatment plan will help augment areas on your body that could benefit from augmentation.
As a VASER liposuction expert, about the quality of the procedure, after determining the fat transfer cost, I can achieve fat viability of over 95% in my fat transfer procedures. With all that viable fat at our disposal, it is a waste not to utilize it in the same surgical session.
The most common area of fat transfer where fat transfer costs vary is the buttocks (BBL), but we also specialize in fat transfer to the chest for males and fat transfer breast augmentation for females as well as fat grafting to the face and neck. Fat transfer procedures may save you money in the long run because they avoid the need for costly implants used in facial and breast augmentation surgeries that may need to be replaced down the line.
