How can I get rid of under eye bags? Is there a permanent solution? (photo)
Removing some of the excess fat in your lower lids may be of great benefit. Often, at the same time, fat can be added to the cheeks just below the eyelid to further improve the "dark circles". If there are seasonal allergies or other factors that are partially causing your lids to look puffy you should try to control these first before considering surgery. The incision is made inside of the lid so there is no visible scar should you decide to proceed with surgery.
It looks like you have excess fatty tissue under your eyes. A transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty surgery would remove this excess fat and looks like the best solution for your anatomy. See a doctor in your area who is experienced with this procedure.

Fillers, lasers, microneedling/PRP can all help to treat this area without surgery. Please see an expert for a consultation. Best, Dr. Emer.
I WOULD TRY FILLERS BEFORE GOING IN AND DOING SURGERY , THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAT TRANSFER AND FILLERS ARE FILLER ARE LESS INVASIVE AND CAN LAST 6-9 MONTHS SOMETIMES UP TO A YEAR DEPENDING ON WHICH ONES. FAT TRANSFERS ARE USUALLY SURGICALLY DONE WITH LIPO AND TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER AREA OF THE BODY. A FAT TRANSFER CAN ALSO BE DONE THROUGH A LOCAL AFTER SURGERY FOR A REPEAT FAT INJECTION. FAT INJECTIONS OR TRANSFERS ARE USUALLY MORE PERMANENT. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU MAY WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT IN A CONSULTATION AND SEE WHAT YOUR OPTIONS ARE.
Treatment for under eye bags
You have fat bags under the eyes, which can occur in some young people and make them look older. The best treatment would be removal of the fat bags through an incision hidden inside your lower eyelid so that there is no visible external scar.
Removal of the fat is a once in a lifetime surgery and the results are permanent. It would also remove the shadow below the fat bag so that your entire lower eyelid area would look smoother.
Best to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area.

Congenital fat pseudoherniation
Thanks for your photo and question. People can have a small out-pouching of fat leading to bags at a young age. This can run in families. Happily, this is easily treated with a blepharoplasty targeting the fat. This is a permanent solution. An incision on the inside of the eyelid (transconjunctival) can provide access to remove the fat with minimal disturbance to the surrounding lid structures. You should seek a consultation with a facial plastic or occuloplastic surgeon to help you with this problem. Best of luck getting the natural, rested look you desire.
How can I get rid of under eye bags? Is there a permanent solution?
A long term solution to under eye bags (orbital fat prolapse) is lower blepharoplasty, which is best done through inside eyelid (transconjunctival) approach with fat repositioning. See following video and link.
I have been doing the transconjunctival lower lid blepharoplasty to remove the eyebags permanently with no cuts or sutures on the skin. Back to work in two days with perfect results. Cost with operating roon, sedation anesthesia and realted cost around $2500.
Thanks for reaching out. It looks like your bags might be caused by excess fat from behind your eye. This can be treated permanently with lower blepharoplasty. It can be done without any scars as well. You should see a board certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation and to get an accurate plan.
I hope this helps :)
