After an orbital fracture surgery, my lower eyelid retracted. Should I have a skin graft or alloderm spacer to fix? (photos)

I am sorry but neither of the approaches advocated by these surgeons are likely to accomplish the goal.
One point that both of these surgeons are missing is the relative lack of bone projection at the top of the cheek. I think the best approach for the type of situation you are in is with the use of a hand carved rim implant with hard palate graft. You can read about this type of repair on my website.
A canthal surgery (canthoplasty or canthopexy) lack the power to accomplish anything here and by itself is not an appropriate approach to this type of issue.

It all depends.
Correction of retracted lower lid after in orbital fracture depends on the problem.
