Your goal of an upturned lateral brow
Surgery for drooping eyes
Based on your photos I don't see the need for any of these. I dont't think you would see any signigicant improvement with Botox or fillers.
Be happy you look great!
Correcting droopy eyelids
To ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, seek out a modernly trained, new-school dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.

Surgery vs injection to improve slightly droopy eyelids.
For slightly droopy eyelids, surgery can present more risks than benefits. An injection with a neuromodulator like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin can relax selective muscles to give your eyebrow a few millimeters of lift to improve your eyelids.
Bear in mind, each patient is different. I refer many of my patients to an eye specialist to specifically identify the problem, as some do require surgical repair. A formal consultation will provide you with the safest options available to you.
Drooping Eyelid Concerns
Very mild eyelid lift
I would recommend you consider a brow lift with botox. An experienced injector would be able to do it for you and lift the tail of the brow slightly (like you are doing in the photo). It will be temporary, but I do think it might give you the result you are looking for.
I would not advise surgery to remove the skin and fat yet. When the degree of skin excess is mild (like in your case), I think you have risk of not being able to achieve precisely what you want or of removing too much skin and having eye dryness.
Hope this helps!
Leave your eyelids alone.
