About this Episode

LJC facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kiersten Riedler outlines everything you need to know about facial fat transfer and injectable fillers.

If volume loss in your face is starting to show your age and you’re exploring solutions to reverse it, the best method for restoring volume depends on your anatomy, age, and goals.

For anyone wanting a permanent increase in facial volume along with some improvement in the quality of the skin, fat transfer is an excellent long-lasting option.

If you’re wanting short recovery time and improved structure of your lips or nose, hyaluronic acid fillers are a great trial run to see how much volume suits your goals before committing to a more permanent solution.

Sculptra is another non surgical option for adding volume to your face. Rather than simply filling in hollow areas like hyaluronic acid filler, it stimulates collagen growth while restoring volume.
