Do surgeons charge separately for Liposuction and Fat Transfer

Surgeons differ. Most surgeons I know liposuction only enough fat to transfer and include it in the fat transfer cost. However, if asked to totally sculpt an area IN ADDITION to fat grafting, i am sure you would be charged a reduced Liposuction fee in addition to the fat transfer fee.

It truly depends on the amount of fat aspirated and the estimated time to perform the procedure. If their are adquate donor sites and sufficient tissue can be obtained from one site, harvesting can proceed quite rapidly. If however donor sites are limited in their deposits of fat and multiple sites must be treated than time and subesequently costs will be increased.
