Correcting Eye bags or Cheek Fillers
It appears from your photo that you don't have any bags at all. You might benefit from a subtle lift in the cheeks from either Voluma or Restylane Lyft. Both of these products will augment the mid face and reduce the puffiness around the eyes as well. Best, Dr. Green

Cheek implants or Restylane injections for under eye bags?
From your photo, you appear to have some flattening of your malar area (upper cheeks). Restylane Lyft would be a good choice to help restore volume there. For under the eyes, Restylane silk and botox are options. In person exam need to discuss and review best options for you.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
Treatment for under eye bags
As for fillers like Restylane or the use of cheek implants, they can be great for rounding out the cheeks to give a healthy youthfull shape to the face. Unfortunately they would have no impact on the orciularis muscle roll. It might be helpful to send in some photos not smiling as this might show something I am not seeing in the current photo.

Options for Lower Eye Bags and Flat Cheekbones: Implants and Fillers
Thanks for sharing your photo! In this photo, you do not appear to have fat bags under the eyes. I see a flatter upper cheek with thickening of the under (lower) eyelash eyelid muscle.This is similar to your observation of a "lack of cheekbones".
There are many different fillers to be used at different depths along the cheek bone for improvement of your flatter cheek.
Options may include:
- Radiesse or Voluma / Lyft at the level of the cheek bone
- Restylane or Juvederm into the cheek fat compartments or under the orbicularis oculi muscle.
- I am not a proponent of thin fillers like Silk or Belotero into or under the dermis of the tear trough or eyelid as it creates too much swelling, cobblestoning or tindel bluishness.
- There is almost no need for surgical implants today for the usual patient due to the longer lasting injectable fillers available today.
Please consider a consultation for complete examination from a well experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Oculoplastic Surgeon who offers surgical AND non-surgical options due to his / her skills and talents.
I hope this helps. All the best!
