This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions addressing linear scars, depressed scars, keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, and other facial reconstructive topics. (Of note, Dr. Lam no longer accepts medical insurance so he rarely manages cancer reconstruction or trauma anymore.)
hi, i am truly sorry that you have gone through so much so far. i do not perform corrective eyelid surgery. i assume you have been going to a qualified oculoplastic surgeon, who would be best qualified to help you with your situation. simply put, i do not cut on the lower eyelids to create these problems. i use fat transfer to fill in defects. if you are interested in doing a fat transfer later to fix hollowness that would be fine but it sounds as if you are a long way off from that. i hope you find the best solution to your problem. speak with your surgeon about your situation and your concerns. i am sure he will be attentive to them. best, sml
