Would I benefit from a lower blepharoplasty w/muscle sling? (photo)

Fat grafting of the lower lid area requires experience and meticulous technique. As the area is covered by a very thin layer of skin and muscle, overcorrection must be absolutely avoided. My approach is to graft fat to the point that the area looks aesthetically ideal, then stop and wait 3 months to assess fat survival. As fat survival is variable, additional fat grafting procedures may be performed based on the results of the first. In most cases of post-surgical lower lid hollowness, two to three fat grafting procedures are required to restore adequate subcutaneous fullness in this area.

The issue with the upper eyelids is that you are beginning to develop upper eyelid ptosis and you have a compensatory brow lift. Slight asymmetry in this process is pretty normal. Surgery is generally used to correct this issue.
