Does eyelid surgery treat under eye hollows? If so, does it incorporate fat injection?
Lower eyelid surgery can treat the hollowness that you appreciate in your lower eyelids. There are actually several ways to treat under eyelid hollowness. In the office, I use fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm to fill in the hollowness of the lower eyelids. Surgery of the lower eyelids with fat removal and fat repositioning is another way to treat lower eyelid hollowness. The lower eyelid surgery results last considerably longer than filler injections to the lower eyelids and the results are much better. My least favorite selection to treat lower eyelid hollowness is fat injections to the lower eyelids. When fat injections to the lower eyelids are performed perfectly, there can still be flaws in the appearance of the lower eyelids. Fat injections to the lower eyelids are very unforgivable and even in experienced hands irregularities can occur.
