I agree with Dr. Ladocsi that this would be an incredibly unusual complication. Even a temporary eyelid droop would be unusual. A consultation with an eyelid surgery expert would likely be very beneficial for you. You should bring photos from a time before the eyelid droop developed for comparison.
