Lower eyelid lines treatment
Hi, I just added a couple of links that might be helpful...
Hi charli71. Your photos show extra skin and bulging fat pads in the lower lids that are optimally treated with a lower eyelid lift. A CO2 laser is an effective way of tightening skin. Smaller degrees of looseness can be treated by chemical peels, microneedling and other methods that carry less downtime than the CO2 but require multiple sessions. Some can be completed at the time of surgery. Fillers, whether synthetic like Restylane or natural like fat, are a nice choice to smooth out the depression/tear trough at the junction of your lower eyelid to cheek. Wrinking in the lower eyelid region is a recurring issue regardless of which method you choose. I encourage you to see a board certified Plastic surgeon who can provide you with a combination of treatments and ongoing maintenance. Good luck!

Extra skin under the eyes
A lower blepharoplasty is a relatively straightforward procedure as long as you have it done by a qualified experienced physician.
Filler in this area would not result in nearly enough smoothness and the amount required to fill the skin to make it smooth would make your lower lids look too puffy.
