Can Fat Injections Successfully Treat A Deep Glabellar Furrow?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can fat injections be used to treat a deep furrow between my eyebrows?
A: No it would not as any injectable material, synthetic or otherwise, is too soft to push out an indented scar. Fillers only effectively work to improve valley-like deformities without prominent edges and a rolling contour shape which pish out easily.
 You have to view a deep V-shaped glabellar furrow as an indented retracted scar. which anatomically it is, just not with the traumatic history. The effective treatment of any indented scar is release, leveling of the two sides of its external surface and support underneath it to prevent relapse.
