How Does Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?
Dr. Langdon will use the Body-Jet liposuction system to remove fat cells from an area with unwanted fat. This method separates and removes fat cells (actually clumps of fat cells) more gently than traditional liposuction, making them more likely to thrive in their new location. The fat cells are then cleansed and purified in preparation for transfer. Next, Dr. Langdon uses a special pump system to transfer the fat tissue into your breasts, where they “settle in” to give you a lifetime increase in breast volume.
How Much is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?
The cost of fat transfer breast augmentation can vary widely due to factors including the cost of living in your area. Your provider’s skill and experience will play a role, especially because this procedure requires artistry to shape attractive breasts.
The cost of this procedure can range from $3,200 to $15,700. The national average price is $9,300. This does not include all expenses, including medications or anesthesia. The procedure includes the liposuction and the augmentation process.
