This depends on a couple of parameters :
Where is your physician planning on harvesting the fat to transfer?
Do you plan on being awake or asleep? (Most of my patients do this awake or with light sedation)
Where does your physician perform this procedure?(Office/surgery center or major hosptial)
Feel free to visit our website which has pricing listed.
I hope this helps!
Good Luck, Dr. C.
Fat Transfer to Lips Cost
Restylane or Juvederm tend to more reliable and cost effective procedures for the lips. Consult with three board certified plastic surgeons who are expert and experienced in fat transfer who are also master injectors.
The cost of fat transfer like other cosmetic surgery varies considerably across the
country and even in the same area. South Florida tends to have lower fees then
more expensive areas such as New York or Los Angeles. We charge starting at $1000 for fat transfer to the face or lips. Since you can get quality work
at lower costs, patients will travel from throughout the state, the country,
and internationally to have surgery in South Florida.
To ensure that you are receiving quality work with personalized care at the
most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that
own their own nationally accredited facilities. The quality must be maintained
at the highest level to maintain accreditation. The surgeons also have
incentive to hire and train quality staff (to ensure that surgery is efficient
and enjoyable), to ensure comfortable and private facilities (to encourage
referral), and to eliminate waste (to ensure that these facilities can compete
Cost of lipoinjection (fat grafts) to lips
This can vary tremendously and regionally. However, the typical costs in this area tend to range from $1500 up to $2500. This may require more than one session for optimal results. Subsequent sessions tend to cost less than the initial procedure but query your surgeon for the exact numbers.
Fat transfer is a viable option for lip enhancement. Fat has risks such as clumping, uneven resorption and asymmetry. We have a technique to break down the fat into a very smooth paste, making it less viscous and more even. This allows more accurate placement of the fat with less clumping. In theory, it should increase the amount of fat staying behind, however, that needs to be determined by studies. We usually recommend fillers initially if you haven't tried it already.
The cost is available on the Realself site and it is nicely broken down by location.
Fat should stay permanently after the initial resorption. Best of luck. Dr. Michael Omidi
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.
