Eyelids may not need surgery

Hi beautifulonce.  Thank you for sharing your photos. They demonstrate minor excess upper eyelid skin.  An in person examination is important to establish that your brow positions are normal as lowered brows can contribute to this.  If that is the case, Botox injections can provide some brow lifting.  Your left lid looks like it may be lowered, in which case you will not see a difference with Botox.  Be sure to see an ABPS certified plastic surgeon for a comprehensive examination.  Good luck!

It looks like you might have ptosis in one eyelid based upon the photos. You need to be seen in person to be properly evaluated.

Mildly puffy upper eyelids

Thank you for sharing you question and posting your photos. Your photos are not straight-on pics, which makes it very difficult to assess your problem. It appears that your have a slight extra fullness to your upper eyelids. There might also be a degree of ptosis (drooping) of your left upper eyelid. You should be evaluated by an experienced eyelid surgeon in person. Good luck.
