Fat Transfer (injection) for Acne Scars

Autologous fat transfers, a process by which a patient’s own fat is harvested and transferred to another part of the body, is an accepted treatment for filling shallow atrophic acne scars. It is perhaps the longest lasting of the injectables available. Fat is easily reabsorbed by the body over the first month. During the subsequent three to twelve months, half of the original fat injected is reabsorbed, but the rest may take root permanently. Fat transfers cost $1,500 to $4,000 depending on the amount of fat transferred.
