Can My Undereye Hollows Be Filled?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m looking for a solution to my hollowed out eyes. Or perhaps you would consider them deep-set. In any case, it seems that ocular surgeons are afraid or unwilling to fill the hollows under my eyes, and I can’t understand why. Perhaps you have a different opinion or solution.

A: I fill undereye hollows all the time. If the surgeon is not familiar with the use of custom infraorbital and infraorbital-malar implants then they do not have adequate tools to ideally treat the problem for certain patients…which would explain their hesitancy/inability to do so.

It is not that it can’t be done but you have to have all of the tools/techniques to do so.
