For the lower eyelids, you have a combination of excess skin, mild fat herniation (bags) and volume loss under the eyes. Your options to rejuvenate the lower eyelids are to do some filler and laser resurfacing to tighten skin and improve the hollows, or consider a lower eyelid blepharoplasty- exact suggestion will depend on an examination.
As far as the lower lids are concerned, a mid-facial lift might also be considered, which can be done through the incision for the lower lid "lift" (blepharoplasty), along with addressing the fat bulges; also, the picture sent shows that your lower lids seem to "bow" downwards, indicating a need for lid "tightening", with what is called a "canthoplasty". Obviously there are many factors to be evaluated and discussed, to lead to the best surgical plan for improvement around your eyes. Consult with a Board-certified Plastic Surgeon who dies a lot of facial rejuvenation. Good luck!

Thanks for sharing.
You have upper eyelid ptosis that is worse on your right. Surgery would be the best option to correct it.
Lower eyelids will need a lower bleph to redistribute and reduce the facty bulge and remove excess skin.
Ideally you would benefit from a Mid face/SOOF lift, but that depends on whether your Surgeon would recommend this after examination
All the best

Thank you for your questions and photos.
You present with classic history and findings that can be improved with a blephroplasty
procedure and post operative tightening of the skin with a laser: CO2RE or RF: Thermi smooth or sublime.
You already have a bit of scleral show and would recommend a transconjunctivial approach for removing/relocating the lower lid bulging fat.
Please make several appointments with experienced Plastic Surgeons who listens to your specific desires and who are not only Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery but in addition ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (denoting by membership as having met additional criteria and a focus on Cosmetic Plastic Surgery).
