The Long-Lasting Must-Have 'Walk-In, Walk-Out' Cosmetic Procedure

As many seek Kardashian-esque cosmetic tweaks and with ‘walk-in, walk-out’ elective procedures continuing to grow in popularity, it is important to discuss the options, even if surgeons are not talking about them. These two cosmetic options are natural vs. synthetic fillers. When discussing the two, fat grafting vs. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers, the main points are retention rate, price and value for money. Economically comparing fat grafting and fillers would be akin to a homeowner asking “is investment in solar panels worth it?” 

There are two scenarios—the first being a HA filler procedure that costs about $2,400 ($600 per cc). This procedure is done with synthetic fillers which have a retention rate of less than 30% after 4 months and a 0% retention rate after 12 months.

The second scenario is a Puregraft fat-grafting procedure which would cost a patient about $3,000 (20-60cc). This option results in a 70-80% retention rate after 4 months and a 30-50% retention rate after 12 months.
