Upper eye hollows
Thanks for posting your question. The second photo is not clear and therefore difficult to appreciate the problem. Although not commonly performed, upper eyelid hollows can be treated with conservative application of dermal fillers when indicated. Please repost some new after photos or see an oculoplastic specialist for a comprehensive exam and to learn more.
I would discuss with your surgeon options for improving the upper eyelid area. Fillers and fat can be used but much of this depends on the amount needed, and the timing-- if you recently had surgery, I would wait at least 6-12 months before doing additional procedures.
Surgery or filler
Thank you for posting your pictures. Can't really tell from this angle. It looks like your surgeon did a good job decreasing the width of your nose. How long ago was the surgery? If it was only a few weeks or even months ago, I would just try to live with it for at least a year as it may be that you are not used to the new more narrow nose. I would be careful in this area with fillers, but if needed a very thin filler would do it. Hope this was helpful. Good luck.

Filler injection, not surgery, for hollow upper eyelids
Surgery will not fix the hollow upper eyelids. You have 2 options: 1) filler injection; 2) fat injection. Filler injection is very effective, predictable and safe. See following link. I was the first person to ever publish on use of filler for upper eyelids. Fat injection is less predictable but an option. Need to evaluate your eyes in consultation (in person or via skype).
