Hello and thank you for your question.
To answer your question, yes a fat transfer can help you. This is a procedure I perform for periocular (around the eyes) rejuvenation routinely. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you
Fat transfer plus fractionated resurfacing would work well
Fat transfer has the power to provide permanent volume to the region similar to the effect that fillers may have done for you. While the volume would be the single most effect option to optimizing your lower eyelid aesthetics, the skin issues are also part of the problem, and so I'd suggest you consider fractionated laser resurfacing to complete the treatment for your lower eyelids. The laser could easily be performed at the same time, and also could be used to treat your upper eyelids to provide with with a real boost. You'd need to be careful about pre treament and post treatment with topical products such as hydroquinone to optimize the pigment stability of your eyelid skin.
I hope this helps you. I wish you the very best!
