What Can I Do For My Lack Of Midface Volume?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to know if i would be a good candidate for any facial implant that could make my undereye/ midface volume loss disappear. I’m going to send some pictures as attachments.

Thank you for your time and help!

A:You have small facial bones with underdeveloped/weak bone structure around the eyes and cheeks. This not only appears as midfacial volume loss but makes the normal infraorbital fat look herniated, the lower eyelids sag with scleral show and the eyes appear overly prominent. The only effective treatment is a custom infraorbital-cheek-maxillary implant. (see attached images)
