I've asked doctors and they say the bags under my eyes is not sagging skin, its fat pads protruding out. Would fillers smooth out that area? Which is better, restylane or juvaderm? What would you suggest? (Later in life I will get a lower blepharoplasty but for now I cannot afford it) I am 18 and Hispanic if it's any help.

Restylane for under eye area
Restylane is my preferred filler for the under eye area as is Boletero. Juvederm is too thick for the delicate under eye area. As you age you will probably need a blepharoplasty to remove the under eye bags since this is a genetic condition and not a function of your age. Please find a board certified physician for the best cosmetic results.
And yes in the future I would suggest a trans-conjunctival lower blepharoplasty to remove the far pads.
All the best!

Which filler for under eye fat
If there is excessive under eye fat, it can be reduced with laser or surgically removed. For many people, surgery is not a great option or a wanted option, and so the fat can be "hidden" to some degree with a filler in the tear trough below the fat pad which blends the fat into the cheek below with less contrast. Restylane is my preferred filler in this location, though others like Juvederm and Belotero are also good. ~ Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.

Fillers Work Well For Masking Bags, Filling Hollows, And Re-Inflating Tear Troughs Under The Eyes
I have been treating under eye problems with fillers of all kinds for more than twenty years, since the days of Zyderm collagen. The use of Belotero Balance, which has little tendency to give rise to the unwanted bluish discoloration known as the Tyndall Effect, and diluted Restylane L, are these days my favorites for treating the under eye area. Juvederm tends to hold on to more water and sometimes can accentuate the baggy look under the eyes as a result of this.
Using blunt tip cannulas, we now have greater control of where we deposit the filler material and are less likely to cause temporary bruises when treating this exceedingly delicate region. The results are immediate, very gratifying and, particularly in this location that is less prone to a lot of movement, tend to be relatively long-lasting.
Fillers for under eye bulge
Many of the doctor's talked about Restylane and Beletero which I agree however, I really like to use a laser type device called Exilis before and after to melt some of the fat. Dr. Atkins in our office uses this frequently and her results are amazing as the far budge goes down and the skin gets tighter. Then, the filler improves the overall contour when added in conjunction.

Restylane is the best filler for under eyes
Thank you for your question. Be certain to ask your doctor about the possibility of visible gray lumps following filler injections beneath your lower eyelids. If you do decide to have filler injections Restylane is the only films that should be used in this delicate important area.
