Will a cheeklift performed by Dr Hamra of Dallas fill in hollow eyes?


I had an lower blephoroplasty done 2 years ago followed by a lser peel. It looks and feels that almost all the fat under my lower eyelids has been moved. The lower lids now look concave,feel tight and wrinkles are starting to set in. I went to see Dr Hamra of Dallas and he says that a cheeklift will be sufficient in filling in the hollowness of the lower eyelid. Is this accurate? I am desperate for relief and eager to regain my self confidance.

Thank you!
Gail

Dr. Hamra is a highly respected surgeon and he has described and expanded the techniques he uses. He probably knows best about the results. (more)

You don't need a cheek lift (almost noone does). All you need is fat transfer and I can comfortably say that without a photo, just by experience. Good luck. (more)

It is hard to tell without pictures of your case, if also a filler cam improve the hollowness in the lower eyelids, that is less invasive. A cheek lift done by Dr. Hamra will do it. (more)
