You may think that a lack of sleep and the stresses of life are the reasons for puffy-looking eyes, but it really comes from changes in the underlying structure and genetic tendencies
Under-eye puffiness and bags may be genetic or can be caused by loss or redistribution of fat. With time the fat pads under the eyes can start to protrude, secondary to a change in the overlying tissue support in front of the fat, that starts to come through as bags, which make the under-eyes puffy.
In some patients, a little bit of Hyaluronic acid filler injected bellow the puffy areas helps to improve the area by adding volume. The result last 8 to 12 months
If the herniation of fat is the issue, the fat can be removed or redraped with Blefaroplasty to permanently get rid of the problem and always look well rested and rejuvenated
Hollows, which are deep grooves under the eye where the orbital rim and cheek area meet, may start to appear as well. With the time the bone and the position of the fat in the malar area start to change making the hollows more prominent.
The tear trough area can be injected with Juvederm or Fat to rebuild the orbital rim, prevent shadowing and plump up the area. Fat is more permanent and Fillers can last for 12 months
