Can fix my hollowness?

I have darkness around my eyes. There is too much skin on my upper eyelid. My left upper eyelid seems to be bigger than the left and I look very sleepy all the time because my lower and upper lids are sunken in. My lower lids are more sunken than the upper and it is not something that makeup can cover. When I smile the skin around my eyes pleat so much on both the upper and lower eyelids. I had Bells Palsy in 2001, and I've recovered about 90%. I don?t have pain, just some residual paralysis hence the remaining 10%. My dark sunken in eyes however, have always been this way, and weren?t brought on by the Bells Palsy, I just don?t know if the Bells Palsy affects my ability to do a cosmetic procedure to fix my eyes. I really don?t want to live with this but I haven?t done anything about it thus far because I thought there was nothing that could be done. I've been reading the message boards and I am wondering if there is something that can be done to help me? how long would it last? and how long would recovery be? I dont want to look like a different person, I just want to look like a very well rested version of myself. Please give me any and all information you can, much appreciated. Thanks.
