Should I Have a Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty for Fat Bags. Don't Like How I Look Smiling
Current approaches include supporting the lower lids with fat grafting to fill in the hollows, then removing a pinch of lower lid skin with muscle support to the orbital rim, or canthal support in addition if needed.
If there is no true excess of fat, then removing intra-orbital fat with a transconjunctival or transcutaneous approach would just make the eye look older and more hollow.
Smiling bunches up the orbicularis muscle which is natural, but does not represent excess fat.
Too many unknowns for an Internet answer. You should get several opinions from experienced plastic surgeons.
