Question:

I had upper eyelid surgery 3 yrs ago which left them hollow… after 1 and a half yrs i found a doc in toronto that would pur filler in my upper lids… i had it done in march 2012 i dont like the way it looks it seems very uneven and lumpy… i dont know how long it will last but i saw that dr chan does this and it seemed more real looking… i just want to get the full lid that i had before the surgeon removed too much on one eye especially …can i send a pic of my now eyes and see if dr chan could do it to look for even and fuller ….

Answer:

The existing filler that you had put in can be dissolved with hyaluronidase or hylase. Then the new filler can be placed more evenly and appropriately in your upper eyelid. Generally speaking, the inner upper eyelid is usually filled more as the outer upper eyelid is the area to drop first and naturally looks fuller.
