Treatment for lower eyelid bags
Thank you for your question. Based on the photos provided, herniation of the lower eyelid fat pads are the cause of the bags. This can be treated with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty. See a specialist to learn more and best wishes.

The best surgery to perform for true lower eyelid bags is a lower blepharoplasty (bleph-a-row-plas-tea) using the fat re-positioning technique, which does not remove the bags (an plder hollowing technique) but instead places a portion of the bag into your tear trough (the groove below the bag), thereby providing a smooth contour from your eyelid to your cheek.

Doing a lower lid Blepharoplasty via Transconjunctival approach. Then fractional laser skin resurfacing to the lower lid including the tear trough.

These dark circles needs a combination of lasers, fillers/PRP, microneedling, and skin care. The hollows do best with fillers if you are looking for a noninvasive approach. Surgery can remove the bags but will not address the hollows unless you reposition the fat. See an expert for options. Best, Dr. Emer.
Old fashioned lower blepharoplasties either by a transcutaneous or conjunctival approach should work very well for you.
Permanent surgery to remove under eye bags ?
You may be a candidate for scar-less transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty with fat repositioning where the fat bags are repositioned to fill the hollow area below them. See following link and video. See an oculoplastic surgeon.
Under eye area
If you are looking for a more permanent solution then you want to consider a lower blepharoplasty. This surgery will contour the lower lid/under eye area revealing a smoother, more youthful look. Visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss your surgical goals and obtain pricing, as pricing varies by surgeon and region. Best wishes.
