I noticed I developed eye bags in April 2011. I went to a surgeon and he said that this was not fat under my eye, but it was swelling. He said I could try Juvederm, but it may not work because it's not fat under my eye. I asked him if there is a way to get rid of the swelling and he said no because it is probably hereditary. He said I should not do cosmetic surgery because I am far too young.

Eye bags- getting the right treatment at any age
The dig unitive answer for you is a lower lid blepharoplasty with FAT TRANSPOSITION NOT FAT EXCISION! fat grafting should be added to the procedure as well. Your pronounced bags are the result of superficial fat decent and deep fat herniation. By transposing the deep fat the lid/cheek junction can be smoothed and fat grafting can help blend and create a lifted appearance to your cheek bones. I hope this helps!
You are not too young. You have signs that warrant an intervention.
All the best,
