I had transconjuctival blepharoplasty 4 months ago. The doctor said he removed alot of fat(more than he anticipated on). When looking straight ahead the bags are 95 % gone. However under certain lighting or when I tilt my head the bags appear. Is it remaining fat or shadow from fat removal. Thanks for your help

Ninety Five percent "gone" is an amazing result at four months. Congratulations on an excellent result! Time will improve your result.
The Lower Eyelid Fat Is A Dynamic Structure That Is Tied To The Extraocular Muscles That Move The Eyes.
This means that when you look around, as you do in the photos, the appearance of the lower eyelid fat will change. Does this mean that you should have revisional lower eyelid surgery? Not necessarily. I think it best to judge the surgery based on looking straight ahead as you do when you converse with someone. These pictures show that you have had a very nice result.
