In brief: Yes

There are a variety of surgeries that can fix a droopy lid which is referred to as ptosis.
The best procedure to repair the ptosis depends on what causes the problem. Usually the causes are due to excessive skin or abnormal muscle function or muscle slippage.

In brief: Usually yes

A drooping eyelid may be caused by "ptosis" which is actual drooping of the eyelid.
A drooping appearance can be caused by excess upper eyelid skin or a drooping brow. You should consult with an experienced eyelid surgeon to see what is needed in your case.
