Lower eyelid festoons and malar mounds
The swollen mounds you appear to have based on your photos are referred to as eyelid festoons and Malar Mounds. They are often related to sun damage over time to the skin in this part of the face. They can wax and wane and are more common in people with lighter skin types.
I've had success using lasers to tighten and improve this condition. Other options include surgery to cut them out but this leaves a scar in this area.
I hope this was helpful.
