Other than the fact that they seem to slightly protrude, there is excess skin above and below. When my face is still it makes me look aged/tired (perhaps it it also hollowness in my cheeks?). But the worst part is when I smile, the lower lids bunches up significantly and the upper folds become more obvious and disruptive when blinking. Pics attached and thanks in advance for any advice!

It sounds like from your description that you may need a blepharoplasty. I do not see photos posted so it is difficult to say.

Because your eyes are prominent, care must be observed in performing eyelid surgery.
Too much eyelid surgery will skeletonize the eyes and make them look buggy. For this reason, upper blepharoplasty should be very conservative. The lowers are probably best improved with the judicious use of Restylane fillers. It is possible that the upper eyelid area could be improved with microdroplet botulinum toxin but as this services only lasts about 4 months, you may feel that you need eyelid surgery to have a longer term benefit.

Blepharoplasty for upper and lower eyelid issues
The primary goal for an upper Blepharoplasty is to remove extra skin and a little bit of fat in the medial compartment. The primary goal for lower eyelid blepharoplasty is to remove the fat bags( 3 compartments) and pinch a small amount of excess skin when present on the lower lids. Crows feet are best treated with Botox. For examples of what can be accomplished with a upper and lower blepharoplasty, please see the link below to our photo gallery.
