Autologous fat transfer (AFT) is a great income generator for your practice and is the ideal filler for patients and physicians. Given the choice, most patients will prefer their own tissues as compared to synthetic filler products and are intrigued by the concept of taking fat from one part of the body and putting it in another. Autologous fat costs nothing for the raw materials and has a minimal cost to harvest and prepare for re-injection. The patient receives more filler while the physician obtains a higher professional fee and profit from this procedure as compared to commercial "dermal filler" products. When larger amounts of fillers are needed, fat transfer/grafting is more economical to the patient and allows for a win-win situation for patient and physician.
Fat Transfer/Grafting allows a physician to diminish or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, creases, furrows, smile lines and other depressions of the face and body naturally at little or no cost of dermal filler to the physician. Imagine, being able to charge $1,250 - $1,500 per treatment for this procedure and offer your patients a more permanent, safe, and more natural looking result by using the fat from one area and transplant that fat to either large areas of lipoatrophy or to the smallest of wrinkles and creases.
Facial Autologous Fat Injection
Autologous Fat Transfer Session
Autologous fat transfer, is the procedure in which an individual's own body fat is used to plump up sunken or emaciated areas of the face or to add volume where desired. Because the patient's own fat is used, autologous fat transfer is safe, non-allergenic, but requires three steps. The first step involves the gentle liposuction of some excess fat from the donor site, which could be the abdomen, buttocks, hips, "saddle bags," thighs, or even jowls. The second step involves the isolation and cleansing of the fat cells usually by mechanical means. Only whole, undamaged, and cleansed fat cells are then used for the fat transfer. The third and final step involves the injection of the fat cells (transplantation) into the targeted facial or body areas.
The safety of the autologous fat transfer technique ensures that there are no restrictions associated with allergies. Fat injections may also be used for lip augmentation and is a perfect complement to other types of dermal fillers where the viscosity of these fillers do not allow you to effectively treat and eliminate finer lines and wrinkles. The facial areas that can be improved with fat injection treatment include creases in the forehead or in between the eyebrows, and hollows under the eyes. Fat injection can also plump up or improve the contour around the nose, the area between the upper lip and the nose, the jawline, and the temples. Indeed, fat transfer can correct scars, sunken or hollow areas, and any place on the face or neck where fat has been lost.
Most facial areas need only one fat injection for noticeable and long-lasting improvement, whereas other areas will require more than one fat transfer to be adequately corrected. Body areas that can be effectively treated include any areas where other aesthetic procedures have created irregular results (i.e. mesotherapy, liposurgery, surgical scars). Generally, the effects of fat injection can last from several months to two years or more. In some cases, the effects last indefinitely.
Train/observe/study fat transfer methods from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or other specialty that have proven to be successful performing various fat transfer procedures. Learn from their experience and receive the "pearls" necessary for you to successfully integrate and perform these procedures within your present office setting. Each program will include a complete digital resource guide of forms, consents, and protocols. Attendees will receive a detailed handout outlining the entire presentation along with space for you to provide you own notes. In addition, attendees will be granted access to the Practitioner’s Portal ("members portal") where you can access the full course manual (every color slide from the presentation) with specific protocols and reference material along with treatment forms, consent forms, and other patient intake forms that can immediately be implemented into the practice
The revenue of a microlipoinjection treatment is dependent on factors such as the amount of fat transfer an individual patient needs, the extent of revision to be done, the geographic region where the cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist is located, and the physician's fee schedule. For your professional fee, most surgeons charge $1,500.00 to $3,000.00 per surgical hour or a minimum of $500.00 for short procedures. The average time for the procedure is 30-45 minutes, therefore the average amount per fat transfer injection is approximately $1,500.00 per procedure.
