my regular dermatologist suggested 14 days of hydrocortisone %1. No improvement. one of the pics is from a few month ago without the crease. Another doctor , who was highly praised gave me her own formula of retinol without any instructions and i had a very bad burn for a few day. Now she feels i need a plastic surgeon to solve this. this is all very disturbing to me overnight.
I recently developed a strange crease or fatty area under my left eye. I'm 49 and never had any wrinkles? (photo)

Wrinkle beneath the eye
The lower lids are a common place to collect extracellular fluid. I would first recommend seeing your primary care doctor to see if you have any thyroid irregularities or other areas of edema. Once a medical problem has been eliminated, you could consider a lower eyelid lift. This will often improve the crease, but may not completely resolve it. I would recommend seeing a qualified oculo-facial plastic surgeon in your area for a comprehensive evaluation. Good luck!.
