Temporary bags under the eyes stem from lack of sleep, allergies to drugs, cosmetics, or environmental factors, or due to water retention from menstruation or pregnancy. Persistent ones can signal a more serious problem involving thyroid, kidney, liver or heart disease.
Permanent bags form when the skin and muscles under the eyes weaken with age, and they sag to allow fluid or fat build up behind them. The only way to permanently unpack these bags is a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty, in which excess skin, muscle and fat are removed through small incisions.
