As we age, our Infraorbital Hollow gradually becomes more prominent due to atrophy of fat pads in the face. The hollowness grows over time from early adulthood and onward, which is first noticeable as a faint line and deepens more with hollow shadow. This hollow is a result of the lower eye fat pad and medial cheek pads reducing in size receding away from each other, leaving the portion between completely deprived of fat. During blepharoplasty procedures, surgeons can visibly see the hollow in transition between the fat and cheekbone.
Correction to the infraorbital hollow is performed with injectable filler. The hollow is easiest to correct when it is still premature and is recommended for women in the 20-40 year old range. This treatment is done best typically with a facial plastic surgeon that understands the intimate anatomy of facial fat and muscular structure.
