ok. Well, it doesn't sound like being too thin is an issue here.....your height/wt is very good.

Is it possible for you to take a picture of our eyes/orbit and post them here?

This is one way to do that:



Save your picture on your computer, someplace easy to find it such as your desktop.
Upload your picture to the site tinypic.com by browsing for it as directed.
Once you do that it gives you a bunch of links you can use, one of which says "direct link for layouts" It is important to use this box. It is the forth one down from the top of the page.
Copy the link inside this box and then paste it into your justanswer dialog box and send it to your expert.

Hi. Were you able to take a picture? We can "chat" using this system....it is just a little bit slow.
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 6 years ago.
Don't push the green "accept" button anymore -- unless, of course, you want to pay me more :o)

Just type and hit enter/send.

If you have deep, sunken eyes as part of your normal body style I do not know of any procedure that is recommended to bring them forward. Trying to increase the volume of the orbit with tissue expanders etc, like would be done in cosmetic surgery elsewhere on your body would be too risky. There are a lot of very important structures behind your eye that don't take well to increased pressure or forward movement.

You might consider consulting with an oculoplastic surgeon or an orbital surgeon to see if they have anything to offer. I do not think this is an area that general plastic surgeons get involved with.....
