As yu know we lose facial volume with aging. However before treatment I recommend hat you have a medical evaluation because your change has been rapid in a relative young lady. Fat augmentation will improve you facial contour and restore the youthful appearance you want. It is important that you select a surgeon experienced in this technique.

Fat injection is a very useful procedure

Fat harvested from your abdomen, flanks, hips or thighs can be used to fill out areas of your face that have lost volume with aging or weight loss. At 33 you are a bit young for the aging process, but if you have had significant weight loss or other medical conditions that have led to fat loss this would be a good procedure.  The fat typically does not survive 100% and therefore there may be some overcorrection initially, and repeat treatments may be indicated.

Seek consultation with a plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

Dear Lady,

Yes, fat transfer would produce the results that you are looking for.  In some patients, it even makes the skin look better as well.  Please visit an experience surgeon to ensure a great results.
