Correcting Hollow upper lids
- Experiencing unexpected changes of the eyelid appearance as a result of surgery is not good and is most upsetting for a person.
- You did not show photos of your before appearance or explain why you underwent upper lid surgery. For a full assessment this information is required.
- As you look young, I expect you are looking for a lasting result from the proposed correction. Using your own fat to restore volume is preferred, but a second procedure may be required. Other than that fat injections are safe, but with traditional technique there is the possibility of visible fat lumps, even with meticulous technique.
- This is the reason I use the Lipogems technique as with that there is no suggestion of lumps, in the 150 cases I have done in the 18 months
This is fixable but not with grafted fat.
Thank you for sharing your concerns. In my opinion, fat graft will be your best longterm option

Many surgeons take out significant amounts of fat during an upper blepharoplasty and sometimes patients are left with this hallow look. So to correct this, you need volume. That volume can be in the form of fat or filler, patient and surgeons preference. Fat is more permanent(but you have to harvest it from somewhere), filler is less permanent but can be pulled off of the shelf.
