Fat transfer breast augmentation ‘sucks out’ fat from unwanted areas and uses it to enhance breast size and volume. This procedure results in a natural look and feel without the downfalls of breast implants. Compared to breast implants, autologous breast augmentation can sometimes be more expensive because it is a more detailed treatment. In this article, we look into the cost of this aesthetic treatment.
How much can you expect to pay?
The cost of fat transfer breast augmentation can vary greatly from one patient to the other depending on the extent of the treatment. For instance, women who need to have excess fat extracted from multiple areas can expect to pay more for this surgery. In addition to the primary costs associated with the surgery, there are also other expenses involved (e.g. anesthesiologist fees, facility fees, prescription medication, follow-up visits, and medical supplies). It is important that all these are factored so you get a complete picture of your projected expenditure.
While average costs can vary from $4,000 to $10,000 for the operation itself, other factors such as the surgeon’s experience and associated expenses can balloon the final figure up. The best way to understand how much you need to pay for breast enhancement with fat grafting is to schedule a consultation visit at Dr. Ruston’s Baton Rouge’s office. This way, the surgeon’s team should be able to provide a detailed and individualized cost estimate based on the specifics of your treatment.
Does insurance cover fat transfer breast enlargement?
Health insurers typically do not cover cosmetic procedures. For this reason, you can expect to pay for this surgery from out of your own pocket. Figuring out how much the procedure will cost as soon as possible is important so you can make arrangements for financing.
