Dear mrs Murray,Hi,Your under eye bags post pregnancy may be due to over weight in pregnancy with more of fat deposition all over the body and eyes. You first need to do a Cholesterol and triglyceride investigation to rule out if you are suffering from hypercholesterolemia and triglyceridemia.Secondly you may be suffering from blepherochalasis where there is orbital fat herniation causing eye Bags.But it usually occurs in upper lids.You have to rule out urticaria and angioedema too.I would suggest you to visit an oculoplastic surgeon who can rule out all the differentials of under eye bag and provide you proper remedy and cosmetics.Beauty lies in the eyes of the observer. So don't worry...TC...Dr Ajay Shanakar Kar
