Is it possible to correct this by surgery. Is there a high chance of over correction due to the minor difference ?

The big risk here is not being properly worked up.
Most likely you actually have bilateral upper eyelid ptosis that is just a little more evident on the left side. Repairing the more obvious side will cause the unoperated side to drop like a stone after surgery. For these reason, you need to be very carefully assessed pre-operatively for the presence of ptosis bilaterally.
