- Eye puffiness can be from multiple causes including thyroid disorders and age however a chronic problem with nasal congestion and sinus drainage can lead to difficulty with the lymphatic drainage around the eyes. This can lead to puffiness of the eyes. Medical treatment of any underlying allergies can help reduce puffiness. Sinus surgery and balloon sinuplasty can help reduce puffiness around the eyes if the cause of the puffiness is related to sinus inflammation.
Will sinus surgery help with the chronic inflammation and puffiness I have under eyes?
