Cost of Fat Transfer

Cost of Fat Transfer

When patients are considering fat transfer for facial rejuvenation, one of the questions that often comes up is, “How affordable is the fat injection?” While Dr. Joseph T. Cruise and all the staff at Cruise Plastic Surgery understand that cost of fat transfer can be one of the factors in determining your cosmetic surgery decisions, we have seen how the investment in themselves reaps multiple rewards, both physical and emotional, for our patients.

Quality vs. Value

Selecting the best plastic surgeon for your cosmetic surgery can be a multi-layered process. While it is understandable that the cost of fat transfer might play a role in your decision, we strongly encourage all patients not to choose a surgeon based on price alone. Patients should consider how the long-term benefits of an experienced surgeon balances out with the expense, and how excellent surgeons set themselves apart with consistent, patient-satisfying results.

The best way to examine a plastic surgeon’s results for yourself is to view as many before and after pictures of fat transfer as you can. A picture is worth a thousand words, and in Joseph T Cruise, MD’s gallery you can find the results of many satisfied patients with outstanding results.

Joseph T Cruise, MD’s Approach

Joseph T Cruise, MD takes a customized approach to facial rejuvenation, ensuring that each patient receives the best results for their individual concerns. Fat transfer is the process of re-placing fat into facial areas that have been affected by aging, such as around the eyes and mouth. Fat is injected into the problem areas to rejuvenate wrinkles, refill underlying areas to give skin volume, and smooth out facial areas that have become stretched and loose. Skin texture is also greatly improved. Fat transfer is often performed as a part of a facial rejuvenation package, and is conveniently combined with other procedures.

On average, the cost of fat transfer is $4,500 depending on the extent of the procedure and the type of anesthesia used. This price range includes standard fees for the surgical facility and equipment, surgeon and anesthesiologist, and follow-up appointments at our Orange County office. Your individual price may vary depending on your personal needs, and we will provide you with an exact cost estimate for your fat transfer at your pre-surgery consultation.
