How to get rid of puffy, "water-bags" under eyes? (Photo)

I have these "puffs" under my eyes. It is water, not fat. Is there any way to remove them? Laser them away? I have been using filler to hide them. . . but after a day or two the water takes over and moves the filler!! What do I do??

Water bags under eyes

Dear Patient from Austin,

Its hard to evaluate you without photos but it seems that you might be referring to Malar mounds or Eyelid festoons.

These tend to be "squishy" when you touch them.

Take a look at some information about the differences between lower eyelid bags and festoons.

I hope this was helpful.
