Depends...: On why they are drooping: could be a plastic surgeon, a facial plastic surgeon, or an opthalmologist. The kind of questions that need to be answered include: is the drooping due to descent of your forehead tissues, too much skin in the upper eyelids, an abnormally low position of the lids on the eyeball, or a combination of factors. Be sure your surgeon is board certified. Good luck!
