Thanks for your question. There are many reasons why eyelids may be drooping and might even be a medical problem. Eyelid Ptosis has a number of causes.
At 16 years old your eyelids should first be seen by your primary care doctor and an eye doctor to rule out medical problems. Surgery may not be your only option for treatment.
Then you can have a consult with a facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or ophthalmologist specializing in oculoplastic surgery. Best Wishes
