Be aware however that in the smiling photograph some of the bulge that you see is the contraction of your normal lower eyelid muscle. This fullness directly below the lashes seen when smiling will be present even after blepharoplasty fat removal.
Please choose your board certified plastic surgeon very carefully and make certain to Dr. is comfortable doing oculoplastic procedures.

First you are probably young enough that lower eyelid filler may accomplish everything you need.
If you went with surgical treatment, the best option is most likely transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty with arcs marginalis release. This takes the fat in the lower eyelid and shifts to the top of the cheek. You will love the effect of this surgery. Now, here is the thing, no every surgeon is put together the same. This type of surgery in my opinion is best performed by a fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon with a large focus on eyelid aesthetic surgery. That might be impossible to find close to home. Do not get talked into transcutaneous lower blepaharoplasty. That will pull your eyelids down and make you regret the decision to have surgery.
