Will I look normal after orbital decompression surgery?

You may not look normal after orbital decompression surgery because your eyelids may not be in the correct position and it is a process to get you looking back to normal. There are two other surgeries that you may need: double vision surgery and eyelid surgery. This is the process that has been tested over and over. Rushing through it and performing double vision surgery first or doing a cosmetic eyelid surgery with your decompression is not only ill advised but wrong. You will not look normal after decompression and may need the other two surgeries to look back to normal. You also may need cosmetic surgery (to remove fat and skin) to appear back to normal.
