Autologous Fat Grafting into Orbital Septum?

Usually fat grafting is not needed unless it is a revisionary surgery

Generally, there is not a lack of fat unless there has been prior surgery to remove it.  Some people have a natural hollowing of the orbit and in these cases, fat grafting can be done.  It would probably be best to establish the eyelid fold first before doing any fat grafting as doing the two procedures together may not work well together.
