How much do dermal fillers cost?
The following is a list of the average cost of several popular types of dermal fillers, according to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and are priced as a per syringe cost. Most patients need multiple syringes to achieve desired results.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite (e.g., Radiesse): $717
- Fat grafting: $2,508

Cost is always a consideration in elective procedure or treatment. The cost of dermal filler injections may vary based on the expertise and qualifications of the person performing the treatment, the type of procedure used, time and effort the procedure or treatment requires, as well as the geographic location of the office.
Your satisfaction involves more than a fee.
When choosing a plastic surgeon for dermal filler injections, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the procedure.
Health insurance does not cover dermal fillers, but many plastic surgeons offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
Choose a professional
Although tissue augmentation with dermal fillers is a quick, in-office procedure that can produce a marked improvement in restoring facial fullness and a more youthful appearance, effective and safe use requires a physician with specialized training and a thorough understanding of facial anatomy to recommend and inject an appropriate filler. Significant complications can occur with dermal fillers, as with any medical procedure, so being treated by a board-certified plastic surgeon is essential for your safety and good outcomes.
