It shouldn't make your eyes hollow. The technique that was described is how to lower your eyelid crease. This surgery is difficult and you need patience. Sometime fat grafting is needed to help soften the surgical results.

Lowering the double eyelid crease is possible depending on your current circumstances

Lowering the crease on a double eyelid depends very much on what took place in the original surgery. If excess skin was not removed, then release of scars and fat repositioning or fat grafting and the use of intervening tissue to prevent recurring scar in the original fold is a common approach to this problem.
