I usually will fill a volume defect prior to resurfacing because the added volume smooths many of the wrinkles. Best not to have resurfacing for about 4 months til settled in. When the fat transfer occurs first, less aggressive resurfacing can usually give great effect.
One month out isnt long enough to know what it will look like from the fat or laser. Give it some time, and then re-exam the situation.
