what does "pouches of flesh, black moles sprinkled over the swarthy skin."mean?

“Hello, can I help you?”
“I’m here to see Mr. Bestigui. Not to worry, I’ll see myself in.”
He was inside Bestigui’s office before she could respond.
Bestigui looked up, his eyes tiny between pouches of flesh, black moles sprinkled over the swarthy skin.
“Who are you?”
He was already pushing himself up, thick-fingered hands clutching the edge of his desk.
“I’m Cormoran Strike. I’m a private detective, I’ve been hired…”

Additional Details:

the author is talking about the skin around Bestigui's eyes?

    The pouches of flesh referred to here are the skin around the eye. It's implying that the his eyes may be more recessed than a normal person's or that maybe he may have some inflammation around his eye to cause the rise of puffiness of the skin.

    Black moles can be moles or freckles on his skin. They're typically natural and most people are either born with them or not. Swarthy skin is dark-toned skin.
