Revision for Fat Grafting to Face
Wait till all the swelling is down and if the jowls persist then liposuction of the jowls, and hope that the skin will retract, if the skin does not then a facelift is needed.
I would not use steroids to dissolve fat in the face because it does not act uniformly.
Choose an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. American Board of Plastic Surgery who understands the different fat compartments.
When you are in a hole, stop digging.
Stop liposuction and steroid injections. These will harm you. I see 2 to 3 new patients a week who come to me for correction of complications from facial fat grafting. Let the dust settle here. I think your best bet is to find a cosmetic surgeon who can take a fresh look regarding what is going on here. Hyaluronic acid filers can be profoundly helpful under these circumstances to help fill the face. This can be done as a long term solution or at the very least give you some breathing room so you stop ping ponging from one bad service to another.

Fat transfer to the face is not just about the techniques of placing fat, but knowing the three-dimensional geometry of the correct aesthetics of the face, so it is also about the artistic eye of the doctor.
