My mom wants to get a non-surgical eye bags removal. What kind of treatment is best for her? (photo)

Blend the cheek and lower eyelid into a continous curve.
I agree with Dr. Kopelman. Your mothers midface appears to have lost volume. If the eyebags were reduced by itself, then her face would look flatter under the eyes but the groove that she has going from the tear trough across into the malar ligament will still be there. By augmenting the midface in a deeper fashion using Juvederm Voluma or Fat transfer may be a better way to blend the lower eyelid and cheek into a continous area, instead reducing the eyelid bag and still having the diagonal shadow splitting her cheek on both sides.
When you go to a consultation, it would help to see how she used to look like when she was in her 20's and 30's. I find that having younger photos is helpful in planning treatments and procedures.
