There are several options for improving the appearance of acne scars depending on the location, how many there are, and how big/deep they are.  I often to a combination of skin resurfacing through either laser, chemical, or manual dermabrasion along with fat grafting.  Interestingly, this can be done at the same time as buttock fat grafting since fat can be harvested at the same time.  Ball park cost for buttock fat grafting is about 7,500.  Acne scar treatment as discussed above would be another 5,000.
