Fillers for tear trough and nasolabial folds fat vs. permanent filler
Thanks for your question and photo. You are a great candidate for either. Some people feel comfortable with fat as others feel more comfortable with fillers. I think that bellafill is a nice permanent filler option that if placed deep gives great results without the need for another surgical site. But if you are looking for liposuction then fat transfer would be the ideal choice. Please seek a certified surgeon that specializes in fat transfer and it can be challenging to get greats results! down time is the same for both about one week due to swelling and bruising in my experience. Good Luck
All the best,

You should be careful of things permanent in the face. Permanent means forever and usually does not age well as the rest of the face changes.
If it were me or my best friend I would do HA fillers.

fillers are by far more accurate than fat transfer in these areas.
Be very careful having fat transfer below the eyes.
Too many times this leads to bad outcomes and potentially disastrous outcomes.
Radiesse is an excellent filler that lasts much longer than Jupiter.
It's also a financially better value.
there are permanent or semipermanent fillers such as Artefill. I would be cautious of using these.
If you move forward with fat transfer it should only be done by someone who is very experienced and has technical expertise as well as good aesthetic judgment.
while it may be frustrating to need treatments on a regular basis fillers are probably your best option.
