Thank you for your question. About 60-70% of the grafted fat survives. At 6 months you will have a good idea of your results. Some women have a second or third procedure which continues to increase your volume safely.
Cost varies by geographic location, surgeon expertise, OR time, anesthesia, length of procedure etc. I would recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery and who is also a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgery. You can call their offices in advance and ask for quotes prior to scheduling consultations.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery. Best of luck! Dr. Schwartz Board Certified Plastic Surgeon #RealSelf100Surgeon
Fat transfer to the breasts
Dear 1ww: Thank you for your question. You do not appear to have a large amount of adipose tissue to transfer to the breasts. I believe you may get at the most a 1 cup size increase in volume. From the photos enclosed of your breasts I do not believe pre-expansion is needed. Depending on the area on the country and the surgeon, the costs may range from $6000 to $10,000. Good luck and I hope this helps. Remember to only use a board certified plastic surgeon with aesthetic breast experience..

Costs vary based upon surgeon. You appear to be a good candidate for this as you have some fat to harvest and transfer, realize only 60-70% of the fat will "take". The surgeon can remove as much or as little fat as you want(do you want aggressive lipo and any extra fat is not transferred but thrown away or just enough lipo to do the fat transfer). All incision are small puncture sites and typically heal very well.
