Pretarsal roll augmentation with dermal hyaluronic acid filler injection focuses on restoring pretarsal fullness. This study aimed to introduce a method of pretarsal roll augmentation with dermal hyaluronic acid filler injection and establish the level of difficulty, safety, and effectiveness of this method. Eighty female patients were enrolled in this study. Hyaluronic acid filler was used to perform pretarsal roll augmentation. Physician and patient satisfaction at 1 month and 4 months after surgery was investigated. The level of satisfaction was graded from points 1 to 5. The patient satisfaction and physician scores were 4.7 ± 1.1 (mean ± standard deviation) points at 1 month and 4.8 ± 0.9 points at 4 months and 4.6 ± 0.9 points at 1 month and 4.8 ± 1.0 points at 4 months, respectively. No major complications were observed. Our technique provided a natural and younger appearance with pretarsal fullness. This technique was easy to perform for the restoration of pretarsal fullness, and it improved periorbital contouring, rejuvenated the pretarsal roll, and provided excellent esthetic results.
