Juvederm over fat injections
Juvederm or any facial fillers can be used to smooth out uneven results from fat injections
Juvederm or any facial fillers can be used to smooth out uneven results from fat injections. Although, the results will be more temporary than the fat so you must maintain injections to keep the desired results.
Juvederm or Restylane after fat injections
If there are areas that have taken with fat injections but other areas appear lower because less fat was injected or less fat "lives" in this new environment, then either more fat can be injected in the uncorrected area, or Juvederm or Restylane (Juvederm Ultra Plus or Perlane, the thicker equivalents of Juvederm and Restylane) can be used.

After autologous fat transplantation there may be some irregularity. Autologous fat grafts in experienced hands work well. However, to fill any irregularity Juvederm is an excellent product to do this. Consult with your surgeon.
Juvederm to fix failed fat grafts
Of course, if you have had failed fat grafts on the face (not all fat grafts survive, no guarantees here) you can fill the deficient area easily with Restylane or some other filler like Juvederm.
Unsatisfactory fat injection can be small areas of too much or too liitle. Small areas can be filled by Hyaluronic acid. major differences are best treated best with fat injections. You need to consult an expert Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

From MIAMI Dr, B
Juvederm and Restylane are my choices to correct unsatisfactory results from fat transfer. Unfortunately, the fat lasts longer than these HA fillers and you will likely need the feathering techniques 2-4 times over 2 years for the problem to permanently resolve.
