This symptom is common with age. With aging, the tissues around the eyes including some of the muscles supporting your eyelids actually weaken. Normal fat that helps support the eyes can then migrate forward into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. Fluid also may accumulate in the space below the eyes adding a swollen appearance. All of these symptoms are more of a cosmetic concern not a medical concern. If these concerns start to really bother you, consider some plastic surgery to remove the fat under the eye bag (looks like turkey fat or left over chicken fat and yes its yellow) giving a smoother appearance when the skin is then shifted up.
