In brief: Droopy eyelid

There are several causes of a droopy eyelid.
Your best bet would be to have your eyes evaluated by a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

In brief: Eye or brow lift

The droopy appearance of your face may benefit from an upper lid blepharoplasty and/or a brow lift procedure.
Meet with an experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your options. Good luck!

Also rule out lid ptosis, a droopy lid that is caused by the levator muscle weakness.

In brief: Eyelid Drooping

When looking at the eyes (periorbital area), there are several factors that need to be considered.
Droopiness may be the result of a heavy eyebrow, extra skin on the eyelids, or actual drooping of the eyelid or any combination of the three. The treatment depends on the cause of the drooping and can include an eyebrow lift, upper eyelid lift, or ptosis repair of the eyelid.

In brief: Maybe, maybe not

The only way to really know is to see a board certified plastic or facial plastic surgeon.
A "droopy" look may be due to too much upper eyelid skin, drooping of the forehead and brow, descent of the outer corners of the eyes, fat bags in the lower lids, descent of the cheek fat, or any combination of the above. All require different approaches so, as always, diagnosis must come before treatment.
