How Much Does Facial Fat Grafting (Fat Transfer/Facial Filler) Cost?

Facial Fat Grafting (Fat Transfer/Facial Filler)

How Much Does Facial Fat Grafting (Fat Transfer/Facial Filler) Cost?Facial skin volume can tend to deplete over time due to several factors, including aging, sun exposure, genetics, and environmental factors. This condition can make a person look older than their natural age, and also compromise the facial aesthetics. Lift Plastic Surgery is a leading plastic surgery and medical spa facility that provides advanced solutions to replenish facial volume.

Patients who are looking at longer term and more substantive outcomes may opt for facial fat grafting, while those who prefer non-surgical solutions may choose facial fillers.

Cost of Facial Fat Grafting

The cost of facial fat grafting or fat transfer will be relatively higher in comparison of dermal fillers designed to volumize the face. However, the patients must evaluate the costs in terms of the long term benefits and effectiveness of each treatment. If the patient is not averse to the idea of a more invasive solution, facial fat grafting or fat transfer may be a better treatment. The treatment will involve the costs of anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, and other related expenses such as medical tests and prescription medications.

At Lift Plastic Surgery, the doctor will carefully individualize the procedure in accordance with the specific aesthetic needs of patients. With a customized surgical plan, the cost of the procedure will differ from one patient to another, depending on the extent of treatment required. The average cost of fat transfer may range between $2,500 and $5,000. In some cases, the procedure may be limited just to the area below the eyes or another limited area. In such cases, the cost may range from $2,500 to $3,000 only.

Cost of Facial Fillers

Lift Plastic Surgery provides advanced and FDA approved facial filler treatments such as Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. The overall cost of these dermal filler treatments can be relatively lower when compared with facial fat grafting. The advantage with these fillers is that the treatment can be performed without involving general anesthesia or IV sedation. When the treatment provider uses hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse, no allergy tests may be necessary.

The average treatment cost of a treatment such as Radiesse may be around $1,000 to $1,500, depending on the treatment area involved and the number of injections used. Juvederm or Restylane may cost slightly lower as compared to Radiesse, which is relatively stronger dermal filler. If the patient needs to add volume in the cheek area, an effective solution may be Juvederm Voluma. The results with this unique dermal filler may last for as long as 18 months, or even up to 24 months in some cases.

As cosmetic treatments, the cost of facial fat grafting or dermal fillers may not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. However, patients can explore various financing options to make the payment in convenient monthly installments.
