In brief: Depends on problem

A drooping eyelid can have several causes.
It may be sagging of the eyelid downward which is called ptosis. This can have several causes. A drooping appearance may be due to excess eyelid skin or a drooping brow. These are usually managed with surgery. You should consult with a surgeon experienced in eyelid surgery to get the right diagnosis and thus the right treatment.

In brief: Surgery

Levator surgery usually corrects a ptotic eyelid.
Either reattach or advancing the levator should correct it. Make sure you do not have myesthenia gravis
