Hi Tazzy, thank you for the question.

Your best option would be to consult a plastic surgeon, aesthetic practitioner, or cosmetic dermatologist that can examine the area of concern and advise you on the best treatment options. I will list the causes for the ‘bag’ that develops below the eyelid area and their treatments:

Surgery:
Fat can drop from the lower eyelid and settle producing a bag like effect.
A loss of the ligamentous support can aggravate the appearance of the fatty bag.

Fillers:
A loss of the fat support in the tear trough forming a groove that potentiates the appearance of the bag.
