Fat transfer breast augmentation is an increasingly sought-after plastic surgery procedure meant to enhance the proportion and size of a woman’s breasts.
During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss various facets of the procedure, including its approximate costs. The main goal of the surgeon will be to enable the patient to make enlightened decision.
Patients should unhesitatingly ask questions pertaining to costs, and insurance and financing at the time of the consultation. They may evaluate the costs and benefits of fat transfer breast enhancement with other options, and make a decision only after they are completely satisfied.

Sundin, provides fat grafting breast enhancement to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Comparison of Costs with Implant Surgery
Breast enhancement can be undertaken using fat transfer or breast implants. While the implant surgery will involve the additional costs of silicone or saline breast implants, the fat transfer surgery itself is more time consuming.
This will add to the costs. For this reason, the general cost differential may not be substantial between the two surgical techniques.
Breast enhancement fat transfer involves liposuction in one or more areas to eliminate donor fat. This harvested fat must be cautiously prepared for re-injection, and then cautiously transferred to the breasts to develop an attractive and natural-looking appearance. It can take around four to six hours to complete fat transfer plastic surgery, which will add to the price tag.
Factor Impacting the Costs
The total monetary amount of fat transfer breast enhancement may differ from one practice to another and even between two patients at the same practice in some cases. The geographical location of the practice will affect the costs. Busy metropolitan cities and major urban centers usually have higher overhead and real estate costs in comparison to smaller towns in interior areas.
This affects the total costs of any product or service, including cosmetic surgery. Breast augmentation with fat transfer is typically undertaken with local anesthesia and sedation. However, in case generally anesthesia is used, the overall costs will include the fee of an anesthesiologist. This fee can differ depending on their skills and qualifications.
Fat transfer breast augmentation may be performed at an accredited surgery center, a private surgical suite, or a hospital. Each option will have associated costs and benefits.
Insurance and Financing
Breast augmentation with fat transfer is usually undertaken as an elective cosmetic procedure. Therefore, the patient will need to bear the expenses out of pocket. However, in some cases, the procedure may be undertaken after a mastectomy to re-create one or both breasts. Such patients may be eligible for medical insurance.
Patients who choose to undergo this elective surgery can consider seeking funds from third party medical finance firms. These companies provide faster loan approval, competitive rates of interest, and easy monthly installments of up to 60 months.
