You should consult with an oculoplastic surgeon to have this assessed.
The American Society for Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery maintains a regional directory of surgeons on their website that can help you identify a highly qualified surgeon close to where you live.
Ptosis after a Stye
Sometimes a stye can cause a mechanical ptosis on the affected side. I would have an evaluation by an oculoplastic surgeon. The stye needs to be fully treated, which may involve drainage or injection of medication. And then the ptosis can take several months to resolve.
