Why does my eyebrow / brow bone area look unattractive and lumpy? (photo)

For the last year or so I've noticed the area just around / under my eyebrows seems to be getting more and more unattractive. Like there is a lumpy area just under each side that nothing really hides (no makeup, etc). I don't know whether it is fat or bone. It does not feel overly hard, but if it's fat, is this normal? Even when I raise my eyebrows (which then wrinkles my forehead terribly), these lumps / bone / fat are still here and they are ruining the appearance of my eyes! Help?

"Lumpy brow bone"

This is probably your supra orbital ridge. Filler can be placed in the depressions or the lump can be shaved down. I frequently do this for transgender patients.
