Correcting the Infrabrow Volume Loss with Autologous Fat Grafting
As we age, we lose facial volume. One of the first sites of volume loss is in the infrabrow area, above the upper eyelids. Patients will often complain of skin excess of the upper eyelids when one of the contributing factors is loss of volume of the infrabrow area. Notice in the above photo that the patient has a deep hollow on the inner aspect of her upper eyelids. This makes the skin excess of the upper eyelids look worse. The best treatment for this is microfat grafting that is injected under local anesthesia to fill out the infrabrow deficit. The fat is often taken from around the belly button. This is a local procedure that results in long lasting correction of the volume deficit with the patient's own fat.
