Under Eye Bulge and Discoloration
Tear Trough Filler
Thank you for sharing your question and photo. The problem you are noticing is very common and often due to loss of volume in the under eye area causing a "hollow" appearance. The easiest fix is carefully injecting a hyaluronic acid filler into this area to offset the volume loss. In my practice, I have had excellent success using Restylane for this area as it provides a very natural aesthetic. I also prefer to use the microcannula technique (instead of the traditional sharp method), which minimizes bruising and allows filler to be evenly injected using only one entry point. I recommend consulting with a board-certified surgeon who has experience using the mircocannula technique in the tear trough area. Best of luck!

Hello and thanks for posting your question!
The quality of the picture you sent is not ideal for assessment. That being said, under eye solutions range from noninvasive peels and lasers to help tighten skin and improve texture all the way to surgical excision of skin and fat. Based on what I see, you may benefit from skin improvement +/- excision of protruding fat in the under eye area. Fat excision in people who are otherwise young and with no skin excess can be done with a hidden incision of the inside of the lower eyelid.
I find that fillers typically do not correct the under eye shadows as much as we would like them to and most patients typically turn to surgical options after being unsatisfied with fillers in this particular area.
Best of luck to you in reaching your goals!

Lower lid bags
It's likely you have prominent fat pockets causing this issue. It can happen in all ages, your options include either filler injectables vs lower lid surgery (blepharoplasty). Fillers are generally recommended when you have hollowing along the lower eyelid/midface area more so than prominent fat pockets, and surgery is recommended when you have prominent fat pads. I would recommend you seeing an eyelid expert (ie oculoplastic surgeon) to discuss your best options. Good luck!
Okay, that is truly a bad photograph.
That said, you may be a candidate for a simple trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty. Excess fat is removed from the inside of the eyelid. No visible scars, no sutures. This is reserved for patients with herniated fat, but no excess skin. See video.
