How can you guarantee that the fat will stay in the breasts and not be absorbed? How much will it cost?

Fat grafting is not a guaranteed procedure
Breast fat transfer guarantee
Thanks for you question. There is never a guarantee in surgery. Without photos is hard to say if it would be possible. I usually tell patients that i need one liter of fat or 2.2 pounds of fat to do breast fat transfer. Depending on the laxity that you have in your breast, it certainly is a likely possibility to add fat to get you a C cup. Remember that when the fat is transfered, it is not usually placed in the breast tissue but around the breast tissue which limits the amount of fat that is placed to about 250-350ccs of fat per side with about 30% fat reabsorption rate. Survival is based on technique and fat processing. I think that fat transfer with centrifuge helps the best as it gets rid of dead fat, oil, and fluid and just places viable fat cells. Cost varies on the locations where the fat needs to be harvested. It usually can run from 6-11k in Arizona. Good Luck!
All the best,
