What about PRP, will it work?

in general you can achieve these things with fat transfer, Sculptra therapy, or PRP or even a combination of these things. If you're very lean you may not have much fat to transfer. Therefore Sculptra may be a good option for you. You ask what the best option is and it really depends on your anatomy and what someone finds during your in person consultation with a physical exam. Any of these things can be performed under local anesthesia with relative ease. You still want an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon to perform this procedure and you can expect much more downtime with fat transfer than you would from PRP or Sculptra.
I hope that was helpful
