I Have a Puffiness Under Only One of my Eyes. Do You Know What Would Cause This?

I have puffiness under only one eye. I have tried creams and eyelifter to get get rid it, but nothing works. I could understand if both eyes were droopy, but they are not. Do you know what could cause this, and how do I get rid of it?

I have seen patients who have asymmetry when comparing both sides of the face.  There is a solution to correct what you describe but it is difficult to say without having seen you or having a photo.  If you are shy to post your photos, you can contact my office.

Dear Superwoman

Under eye puffiness is in the eye of the beholder.  It might be that this is the side you sleep on.  I often see patients who present with asymmetric issues.  This is much more common than you think.  Consider posting a photo so we can better understand you concerns.
