Note, how when there is a little too much exposed platform to the upper lid, the eye is drawn to the lid, rather than the pupil. Hollowness, whether through ageing, or post blepharoplasty complication also lends a 'roundness' to the eye. In the after pictures you can see how orbital fillers are used to address this problem.
(The image below, though not the best quality, is an excellent example of this)

The reports on longevity of filler, are from 9 months to 24 months. Latest reports are very positive, for the procedure lasting between 18-24 months. This area is not as mobile as others and this factor contributes to the longer lasting result.

Addressing The Hollow Lid.

One of the most frequent complications we see from posters unhappy with the result of their upper blepharoplasty, is that of the hollow upper lid. Although this can be quite distressing for the patient expecting to emerge from their surgery looking younger and more refreshed, in many cases it is a problem that can be rectified without opting for further invasive surgery. Hyaluronic acid filler is an effective means of rejuvenating the upper eyelid and is particularly successful in patients with medial/generalized upper eyelid hollowing, or significant post blepharoplasty upper eyelid show.

Unlike the tear trough, you will most likely need to discuss the use of orbital fillers to the upper lid, with an oculoplastic surgeon. It is not an area that purely cosmetic practitioners offer, given the complications that could occur to the eye, if not carried out by someone fully trained in oculoplastic surgery.

The purpose of this sticky, is really just to give some examples, that can be referred to easily when the topic comes up, as it frequently does. I will add photographs and links to broaden the knowledge contained here, as I come across useful articles of research.

I will use photographic examples taken from a broad base of U.S surgeons, that way we are not seen to be promoting bias to any of the oculoplastic surgeons frequently mentioned on our forum. Please note, every individual case will differ, and it is impossible to guess whether you are a good candidate for orbital fillers. This would need to be discussed with your practioner of choice.
