As people age, do most have some semblance of a droopy eyelid? Besides ptosis surgery what can be the most minimally invasive treatment option?

In brief: Yes

Upper eyelid aging changes can resemble eyelid ptosis.
These changes may interfere with vision and/or be aesthetically concerning. Upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be very helpful.

In brief: Different options

Depends what the cause is for the droopy lids, a plastic or oculoplastic surgeon can help you determine the cause.
In some cases fillers or Botox can be used to temporarily improve it, but the improvemenrs are very limited. The best way to correct droopy lids is surgery, the results are longer lasting and may improve the appearance of your upper face.
