Puffy upper eyelids and inner corners, what could be the reason and which doctor should I see? (Photo)

Bulges in eye
The inner eye bulge is a fat pocket. If it bothers you, it can be reduced in size. The outer region is likely the lacrimal gland which can be reinforced and supported to the upper inner aspect of the orbital rim.

Thank you for your question and photos. It appears from the your photos that the puffiness near your nose is from a "fat pocket." This can be removed surgically with an upper blepharoplasty procedure. At the same time, loose skin and other fat pockets can be removed to shape your eye better. Please see a qualified facial plastic, general plastic or oculoplastic surgeon. Good luck.

Hank you for your question. The inner corner bulge is a fat pad and this can be surgically trimmed down to produce the desired smooth contour while avoiding an excavated, empty look. The bulge out to the outer corner is likely to be the lacrimal gland and this should be tucked up and sutured under the bony rim above it, but not removed. Best of luck!
