Thank you for your question and photograph.  A procedure called a canthopexy is the best option to lift and tighten lower eyelids that are pulled down.

This is a very delicate in complex operation and must be done by an experienced expert in eyelid surgery.

Please consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American board of ophthalmology with a special certificate an Oculoplastic surgery.

Thanks for the picture.  A better series of pictures would be helpful.  You appear young with not a lot of excess skin and fat.  There is some rounding to your eyelids that may benefit from a canthopexy.  An Exam is extremely important to see if you are a surgical candidate.
