Hallo Michelle
Baggy eyes are the result of accumulated fat in the eye area. With age the supporting tissue weakens, which causes the outer layer of fat within the socket to sink forward - resulting in pouches, or bags. To date, cosmetic surgery is the only way to eliminate baggy eyes.
Puffy eyes however can be caused by tiredness, allergies, water retention before menstruation, kidney disease etc and then one needs to treat the underlying condition.
