Is it possible to surgically thicken the muscle near the eyes to create volume in lieu of fillers (since fillers are not recommended too close to the eyes)?

Increase Eye Muscle Volumes will NOT Improve Hollowing of Lower Lid
Surgically increasing the volume of muscles without fillers
Although your biceps may be bulked up through exercise, muscle cannot be technically thickened sufficiently to cause and increased bulk especially in the fast twitch muscles of the eye. In other portions of the body such as the buttocks or breast, fat can be injected into the muscle to make it more thicker. This would be extremely difficult and risky in close proximity to the globe.

The eye can not be thickened , although soemtimes the muscle layer is folded at bit if it isnot removed during a blepharoplasty while some skin may be discarded.
