She had one of the largest collections of fat underneath the skin of the eyelids that I've seen.  She had those large attractive eyes that were partially hidden by the fat protrusions.

The bulges are easy to see.  In most people, excess fat also resides in the upper eyelids, but only in the inner corner of the upper eyelid, adjacent to the nose.

During the upper eyelid surgery, besides the removal of excess skin, the fat that makes the little bulge next the nose is removed as well.

Questioner: Swollen nose 9 months post-op?
Hello. I had a nose surgery back in June 2014 and, though I was told it takes up to a year or more for the swell to dissolve, I'm starting to worry about it. I had a problem with my nose's tip (it was too big & out of proportion with the rest of my face) but it's still not small enough, although it's been a long time since the surgery. Plus, the tip is very hard & feels numb when I touch it. Is this natural?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Need bigger photos, at different angles
Hi,
While it's true that it takes about a year for almost all of the swelling to go down, it's also true that if you are to receive a great result, you probably should be closer to that result by now. With a great result on the way, you wouldn't be worried about the tip getting smaller at 9 months; rather, the last three months would see just the very tiniest of swelling resolve to give more finesse to the result.

It's sometimes possible for a surgeon to give a patient an idea of what might be going on based just on photographs, but we would need photos that are much larger, and taken from different angles, to get a better evaluation. We'd need to see more details of the nose. Hope that helps some.
