Can my heavy morning eye hood be corrected by a plastic surgeon? If so, what would they likely be removing/fixing? (photos)

Morning eyelid edema
It may be normal to have some swelling in the eyelids in the morning. Your last photo suggests that you do not need additional surgery, but instead, careful consideration of other factors that may cause eyelid swelling. A medical approach to the problem is head elevation, avoid sleeping prone (face down), avoid adding salt to diet, and see your primary care doctor regarding medications that could cause this (ACE inhibitors) if you are on any medications. A concern in your situation is consequences of removing more tissue when your eyelids look great in the last photo. Best wishes!
You should look into upper eyelid blepharoplasty
