At age 29 it is pretty rare to have excess skin on the lower lids.  It is important not to pinch too much lower lid skin because the patient can end up getting scleral show and ectropion, which will lead to further problems.  An additional option to try is Fraxel laser treatment to see if the skin in that area can be tightened.
