Periorbital-Facial Volume Rejuvenation for Focal Deficits

Management of focal volume deficits of the face has traditionally been a difficult problem, especially following trauma. We have found good success with the use of various materials. We have found fat and orbicularis tissue removed at the time of blepharoplasty or myectomy surgeries to be useful for filling volume deficits of the nasolabial folds, lips, glabellar folds, and for the lateral hollowing in myectomy patients following aggressive removal of the lateral orbicularis fibers of the upper and lower eyelids. Radiesse is an outstanding volumizer in HIV—or age-related fat atrophy. Four to 5 vials of Radiesse may be needed. It can also be used in the correction of enophthalmos.1
