The importance of accuracy can not be understated.
There are two types of creases scene between the eyebrows that are caused by muscle contractions in this area.
Horizontal lines are caused by The contraction of the muscle called the procerus muscle.
Vertical lines or the "11" lines are caused by the contraction of the corrugator supercilia muscle. These are two anatomically distinct muscles that cause two distinct emotional expressions when contracted.
The best treatment for these lines is Botox.
The third potential concern may be the overall facial contour between your eyebrows. The very top of your nose as a transitions to the forehead is called the radix.
Some people have a low set radix and others have a high one.
Some people can benefit from having a small implant placed underneath the skin over the radix.
This can be made from a small piece of Cartlidge that can be taken from the back of the year or can be a silicone implant.
fat grafting is also an option though I don't think it will be nearly as effective or precise as the placement of an implant.
Fillers may also work very well in this area.
There are some great long-lasting fillers that you could consider such as Radiesse.
your question was somewhat vague so I have gone out on a tangent talking about things that may not be applicable whatsoever.
But if you're interested in potentially changing your facial contours then you could look into radix grafts.
I think you will find the silicone implant or cartilage graft will be much more effective then and attempted fat transfer procedure for this particular area
