I'm getting a lower blephproplasty soon. I'm concerned about a hallowed out look after fat pockets are removed.

Excess removal of fat from the lower lids can create a hollowed out appearance.

In younger patients with no loose skin the trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty can be done without skin resection. However if you have any loose skin at all some skin resection may be required. This can often be done through a small incision on the side called a "skin pinch blepharoplasty". Please see your plastic surgeon again and discuss all of these details thoroughly. Once surgery is done at cannot be undone.
