I am a 29 year old Hispanic woman with allergies. I have lower eyelid bags that concern me. I feel they are very prominent, but wonder if I'm too young to get the surgery. I want to know what my best options are. I have never done botox or fillers, but am open to suggestions. I have gone to 3 different blepharoplasty consultations and I have gotten different responses. I'm a little confused and need to know my best option.

Transconjunctival Fat Removal
You have classic lower eyelid fat herniation. While it usually occurs with aging, it can also appear naturally at a young age in some people.; (such as you) The best treatment would be a transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty where the fat is removed from an incision inside the eyelid with no external incisions or skin removal.

Puffy lower lids
The 3 fatty deposits in the lower lids are herniated outward, creating the puffiness. This problem is best addressed with a lower blepharoplasty performed thru a transconjunctival approach (all of the incisions are inside the eyelid). No skin removal will be needed at your age. This would be the best solution, but make sure your allergies are well controlled with nasal sprays , antihistamines, etc

It appears that you have some lower eyelid fat bags in the central fat compartment. This can be reduced with a Transconjunctival Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty). Hope this helps.
