Under eye bags: what are they?
Under-eye bags are part of your lower eyelid however, you shouldn’t confuse bags under your eyes with dark circles. Under-eye bags are caused by the movement of fatty tissue. These will then form a fatty bulge that is stored under the eye gradually over time.
So, under-eye bags are clusters of fat or water that form under your lower eyelids. You may then notice a ‘baggy’ look, as well as a sagging in your lower lid.

So, whether you have under-eye bags or dark circles, it gives you a tired, dull look. It can add decades to your age. This is why some people turn to cosmetic surgery.
Under eye bags: what are the causes?
Under-eye bags have many causes. The main reason they appear is due to age. The skin in the eye contour is delicate and sensitive and reacts quickly to the ravages of time. When the skin loses its elasticity, bags can appear under your eyes so with age, your tear trough beneath your eyes can deepen, leaving noticeable bags under your eyes.
Often if under-eye bags appear on a young person, this is due to genetic predisposition. Under-eye bags can also be caused by other factors. These include tiredness, alcohol, tobacco and poor health practices, which can all speed up the appearance of eye bags.
Under eye bags: how can you get rid of them?
The most common treatment for under-eye bags is blepharoplasty. This cosmetic surgery technique allows you to correct the effects of time by removing excess fat from under the eyes.
If the eye bags are not very pronounced, non-surgical methods, which reduce swelling under the eyes in a non-invasive and natural way, can be used instead of blepharoplasty.
