When only shaving back is not enough and reconstruction of the orbital ridge is a fact; I guess that osteotomie is the case then? Does it always included plates,metal & screws? I have heard that one surgeon said it should always be done without metal/screws and the other said it's not even possible without metal/screws. And are the plate/screws forever? Would the orbital ridge/sinus be a soft/fragile spot forever? What about infections,rust etc after everything is closed?
