I am 20years old boy , I have very thin face , even my body fat is about 3% but my face seem cupped around my teeth , I want to know if I gain some fat , does my face became normal at this age or I need fat transfer to my face ? and does my face volume remain after fat transfer ?
You may not be a good candidate for fat injections as there may not be enough fat to harvest on your body to use for your face. Furthermore, as you age, you may put more weight on your body than you now have and at that time, your facial fat may take on more fat making it look disporportionate from your body. Correction of fat injections are not easy so you don't want to undertake this project unless you know the potential worst case scenarios such as lumps and bumps that you may want to get reduced.

Best Treatment for Thin Faced 20 Year Old Male...Sculptra, Fillers, or Fat?
Fat transfer is an excellent procedure, but I would advise against it in the face of a thin 20 year old. Fat can be unpredictable, and as young women get older and gain some weight, the living abdominal fat cells in the face can hypertrophy and distort the face. You should consult with an experienced and skilled facial filler injecting physician who can guide you towards what is best for you. I would use Sculptra. Good luck and be well.
Fat Transfer for Thin Face
Fat is a viable option if you have adequate donor tissue. Fillers are another reasonable choice.. Consult with a physician who has experience with these techniques.

Fat Transfer in 20 Year Old Man
Your face will likely fill out with some weight gain. How added weight would affect the rest of your body, you would know best.
Most of us here on this board are jealous of your 3% body fat ... But the combination of young age and low body fat would also disqualify you from being a good fat transfer candidate - at least in my practice.
