Will Upper Eyelid Filler Create A Straight and Angular Looking Upper Eye?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a low set brow ridge that conceals most of my upper eyelid. Even so, it leaves a small semicircular sliver of the upper eyelid exposed. Is it possible to use fillers to conceal this portion of upper eyelid and create a more straight and angular looking upper eye in the process?

A: The best way to know if upper eyelid filler can be effective at reducing the upper eyelid show is to have it done. With an HA filler if it is not as successful as one would like it can always be reversed or let resorb over time on its own. I believe it will help conceal the upper eyelid bit whether it creates a straight or angular looking upper eye is not as clear.
