Correcting Under-Eye "Bags"
The skin beneath the eyes is very thin and gets even thinner with age. Blood vessels and muscles beneath the eyes may appear as dark circles. There may also be an indentation, as you describe — the tear trough — which creates a shadow. That shadow is intensified if "bags" of fat have formed under the eye, creating greater contrast between the areas of light and shadow.
To correct this, I use one of several long-lasting dermal filler options to fill in the indentations and minimize the appearance of bags and shadows under the eyes. For those with more prominent bags or excess, wrinkled skin, I may suggest minimally invasive lower eyelid surgery.
Watch the video below to see the difference dermal fillers can make, refreshing the eyes and reducing the appearance of bags.

Lower eye bags treatement
Lower eyelid bags, circles, wrinkles, and discoloration are very common complaints, even in young patients like you.
There are several surgical (e.g. blepharoplasty) and non-surgical (e.g. fillers, laser treatments, topical medications) options. The best option for you will require a detailed exam by a board certified plastic surgeon. Only after a full history and exam can the correct options be discussed.
With regards to your concerns for damage and complications from blepharoplasty it is important to discuss these concerns with your plastic surgeon.
