You know that the aging process can make under-eye bags appear as your cheeks begin to droop a bit. But a quick slim-down can lead to the same problem. "Rapid weight loss causes you to lose volume in your cheeks, disrupting the smooth transition from the under eye to the cheek," Zeichner says.
How to de-puff: Try cold compresses as a quick, temporary fix for small bags, yet the least invasive but still effective option is fillers, which can restore volume to your cheeks and minimize the baggy look. If your bags are very pronounced or the skin is especially saggy, though, your dermatologist may refer to you an ocular plastic surgeon for a lower eyelift.
