Hollow lower eye area.
Yes…………I have seen this problem with lower lid plastic surgery more than I would like …….IF…….the fat pads are removed. Ideally, the plastic surgeon would move existing fat pads into better position – repositioning – rather than taking them out. Sometimes this is not technically feasible.
I’m puzzled as to why the Restylane didn’t help since it’s essentially a quite natural hyaluronic cross-linked gel implant which is temporary. In this area, it will often last 6-12 months. One thing to consider is to get a second opinion from a different, experienced board certified derm in your area and take the injection records with you so he/she can see exactly what was done. You will need to be seen in person.
