: How can you tell the difference between puffiness under the eyes caused by allergies, and that caused by age? I usually have puffy eyes an have been told it is allergies by some, fat deposits by others.


Steph: I guess first you should pursue whether the puffiness is indeed caused by allergies by vigorously following all of your allergy doc's instructions in combating your asthma. Then, if it is fat deposits, and it really bothers you, you can go to a reputable eye plastic surgeon and have the under-eye fat drawn out by a needle. I had this done about six years ago, and the results were fantastic. The eye plastic surgeon simply gave me a valium beforehand, deadened the area around my eyes, and made TINY incisions, and drew out the fat. In two weeks (after bruising went away), the fat was gone and it has never returned and never will. Hope this helps.
