I'm 30 years old and have hollow temples and hollowing under the eyes. I want to know what the best option is for helping to correct this.
What is Recommended for Filling in Hollow Temples and Under the Eyes?

Treating temple concavity
I do not think there is a specific best way. I am sure if you speak to 20 doctors you will get 20 different preferred ways to treat these problems. For the temples I have used free fat grafts from liposuction performed elsewhere on the body with good results and happy patients. I am pretty sure the same results could be achieved by injecting sculptra.
For hollows under the eye I prefer a sheet graft of fat. I have also seen good results with restylane or sculptra injected into the area. You have to be very careful with injectable fillers under the eye though because if a problem occurs it can be a major one.
