She underwent bilateral orbital decompression surgery (eye socket bone and fat removed from behind the eyeball to push back the eyeball) and lower eyelid retraction surgery (to raise the lower eyelids). Note improved eye appearance and function (eye is able to close now). Before and 2 months postoperative photos are shown.
