I appreciate your question.

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 plastic surgery.

Best of luck!

Cost and recovery from a breast fat transfer augmentation

  • The cost of a breast augmentation with fat grafting and the expected recovery is similar with that of an implant based breast augmentation.  The surgery takes longer so there are added costs for your surgeon's fee and anaesthetic fee, but they are offset by the fact that you don't have to pay for implants.
  • Make sure that you see a surgeon that does a lot of fat grafting to get the best possible results.  It is meticulous and not all surgeons do a great job if they are not willing to put the time in.
  • Dr Rodger Shortt is a plastic surgeon in Oakville who cares for patients from Oakville, Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, Burlington, Georgetown, Milton and the GTA.  He strives to be the best plastic surgeon and is one of the few plastic surgeons in Canada with 5-star ratings on RealSelf, RateMD and Ontario Doctor Review.  He is the director of cosmetic surgery training and an assistant clinical professor at McMaster University.
