Yes: It is very common. Often md will suggest head elevation and moist, warm packs be applied for the first several days to weeks to assist in reduction of the fluid. Time typically corrects all such "pockets" as healing progresses.
A 39-year-old member asked:

Yes: Many people feel self conscious or "tired" appearing which effects many aspects of life (work and social). The eyes are a prominent feature when meeting people, and excess skin, muscle ridges or large bags suggests aging or tiredness. It is a personal decision, driven by whether you feel it makes your features unattractive or if you have excessive hooding restricting your visual fields.

No: Typically it is the other way around....That is, low self esteem is a motivating factor for many to seek consultation and surgery to deal with an area of self concern or dissatisfaction with a body feature. Feeling self conscious about a feature or appearance leds people to seek a change to reduce or correct the perceived problem. Some patients are recommended to seek supportive psychological.
