not sure what to do :(
 
I am in my late 70's and have no problem getting older and looking older altho I do keep myself healthy/slim etc. Recently realized I have one under-eye bag bigger than the other, it is really noticeable if I smile or laugh. If I wear my glasses it isn't so obvious. I am afraid of cosmetic surgery as I don't want general anesthesia which I read can contribute to dementia in older people I am thankful that I don't have something terrible like cancer etc but can't help feeling disappointed that both eyes are not the same The other eye is really not that bad at all and like I said, I don't mind looking older, just wanted to look normal Just curious if anyone else has this experience? thnx

I would see a good dermatologist. They could have products and/or medication that can help with that outside of surgery. If surgery is required, you may not need general anesthesia. There are other methods that perhaps you can have.
