Treating volume loss with fillers or fat grafting
- You have a very pretty and symmetric face
- If you have scarring, it depends on where it is
- For surface scars, microneedling works well
- I just dont think you have a significant amount of volume loss to get a fat transfer (you may look too filled out)
- This is just an opinion based on your photo, and in person exam would be best
- Check out the Glasgold Group in New Jersey, they are experts in fat transfer and will not sell you a surgery you do not need

I would allow at least another six months of healing.Once your face has healed, then I would suggest volume replacement.
Juvederm and fat grafting are good choices. Each has its benefits and downsides. In addition, each surgeon has a preferred method and is usually better at one technique that another.
Based on your history with permanent facial fillers, I would use something more natural like fat grafting. It is possible that you would have less reaction to fat grafting.
I hope this opinion helps you. Good luck.
