Fat grafting to Lower eyelid

Many of my lower eyelid surgery Houston patients inquire that if the fat is removed from their lower eyelids will it then look hollow. Lower eyelid surgery for bags under the eyes or lower blepharoplasty is an excellent procedure to appear more rested, refreshed and rejuvenated. However, if too much fat is removed, the lower eyelids may appear sunken or hollow. This is important to assess to see if the fat needs to be repositioned into the tear trough at the time of lower blepharoplasty. Another option is fat grafting to the lower eyelid but this can be difficult in thin skin patients as this fat may present irregularities after grafting.
