I’d like to talk to you about why fat transfer is so cost-effective, as opposed to fillers, and it’s an interesting concept that people don’t really think about until you really get into the numbers. Fillers come in very tiny syringes. I’m going to show you one. This is one cc, and actually fillers come in less than this cc. It’s .8 cc, and a syringe of this in most offices by most dermatologists or surgeons, costs anywhere between four hundred and six hundred dollars for one. When we do fat transfer we’re moving natural, healthy tissues, and in fat transfer we’re maybe moving a teaspoon, or a tablespoon, or two tablespoons. It doesn’t sound like very much, and it really isn’t, but let’s do some comparisons. I do a little bit of cooking so I’m a little bit knowledgeable about this. A teaspoon is 5 cc. That’s five of these. There’s three teaspoons in a tablespoon, so there’s fifteen syringes in just a tablespoon of fat transfer. So if you put in just one tablespoon of fat transfer in the face or in other parts of the body, that’s nine thousand dollars’ worth of fillers, which go away. It’s almost like leasing a car. You’re two, three, four years out, and you have nothing to show for it. Fat is permanent and when fat stays, even though people might choose to do or need to do another session of fat transfer, it sits on top of the template of the previous times.
