Fillers VS Fat transfer Which one is better ?

Updated: Jun 30, 2021

It quite a big topic that which one is better between Fillers and Fat transfer.

Today we will explain you the different between 2 procedures.

When you older, a major component of facial aging is the loss of facial volume in form of fat.

(another is collagen loss and bone loss) And if you want to look younger, you just reverse the aging process by replacing the volume back.

So the most popular procedures to restoring lost facial volume is HA fillers and Fat transfer that why we have this topic today.


We selected HA Filler which is safest and FDA approved.

What is HA filler?

HA come from Hyaluronic Acid which is natural human substance,

HA within our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin and joints, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air, Just like collagen and elastin, the amount of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases as we get older.

So it is very safe for you skin. There’s no need for an allergy test. it only has a small chance of allergy to it. And now many HA fillers mixed with lidocaine (Pain killer) to reduce the pain, short procedures (only 10 - 30 minutes), see result immediately with better result and no downtime (less swelling, less inflammation), long lasting 1-2 years per treatment, less major complication such as permanent blindness (Just like vascular occlusion less than fat transfer because HA are smaller molecules than fat)

All the detailed HA fillers look better than Fat transfer. But it come with higher price compare to fat transfer with the same amount (If small amount HA filler is safer compare with fat transfer).

Fat transfer (Autologous fat grafting, fat fillers)

Most procedures doctors will use machine to suck your fat from another part of body most from abdomen and thighs (Not there same as liposuction which is removed a lot of fat) and then put back to your face or another area like cell transplant. Due to it your own body fat so it more safe than HA fillers in term of allergy.

Some evidence suggest that stem cells found in fat injections provide a youthful effect appearance of the skin where the fat injected.

Due to surgery procedures fat transfer is more pain, long time bruising and swelling, longer downtime (Have to wait the wound to heal), more complication such as permanent blindness due to bigger molecule compare to HA fillers, result last shorter (if it not effective fat cells, it can die and disappear after in Korea's research after 3 months fat cells decrease more than 80% in 3 months), can't see result immediately due to swelling and inflammation, easy to have irregularities and lumps compare to HA fillers

But sometimes it better in some people who what to reduce fat and need volume at the same time. And fat transfer is cheeper compare to HA fillers if you need a lot of volume
