In brief: Droopy eyelid repair
The type of procedure depends on the cause of the droopy eyelid.
If the eyelid is droopy from stretching of the eyelid lifting muscle, then a levator advancement or a mueller muscle resection may be performed. If the eyelid is droopy from weakness in the eyelid lifting muscle, then a frontalis sling surgery may help.

In brief: See an eye doctor
First we need to know what is causing it and if surgery is an option.
If so, it may be necessary to operate on both sides because usually the other one is not in a rested position when the opposite side is droopy.

In brief: Surgery
It is hard to hide a droopy eyelid.
There are large contact lenses (scleral lenses) designed to elevate the eyelid, but they don't work in all people. Surgery can be used to raise a droopy eyelid and the procedure type depends on the type of ptosis.
