Upper and Lower Hollowness After Blepharoplasty
before orbital fat grafting

This young patient underwent an ill-advised upper and lower blepharoplasty one year earlier. Stripped of youthful fullness, the eyes
and lids were left looking older, sad, hanging, and without definition.

Left lower eyelid hollowness and a "bulging eye"
Before Three Months After
Following blepharoplasty, the sunken lower eyelid abnormally hugged the rounded contour of the eyeball, especially along its outer half, and changed the natural look of the patient's face and the expression of her eyes. The left eye itself felt vaguely uncomfortable during routine movement and tired easily. After orbital fat grafting to reestablish deep underlying support and restore a youthful fullness, the lids regained their former shape and normal sensation returned.
