What surgery would I need in order to get these eyes ? (photos)

I naturally have big eyes (from my mom) with big eyelids and i would like to know what kind of surgeries or procedures i would have to go through in order to get these eyes. I want smaller and more almond shaped eyes as well as my eyelids.

Hard to answer without an actual photograph of yourself.

Eyelid surgery can be a wonderfully transforming procedure.  The key is finding the right surgeon with the skills, training, and experience to achieve the result you are looking for.  Please consider reposting with photographs of yourself which will assist us in answering your question.

Desiring different eyelids

Thank you for sharing your question. One of the photos you post shows a person with ptosis (drooping eyelids). I do not think this is the look you want to achieve. Please post photos of yourself or see an eyelid expert for comprehensive evaluation.  Good luck,

Improving eye shape

Beauty comes in different shapes and sizes. And it is impossible to want to look exactly like someone else. However, improvement is possible. See following link for more information. See an oculoplastic specialist.

Not clear what eye shape you are asking for

Unfortunately it is not clear which picture if either is you and which picture is your goal. Regardless, the best possible assessment of your cosmetic goals will be made after an in-person physical exam by a board certified occuloplastic, facial plastic or general plastic surgeon.
