Fat Orbital Decompression?
I do NOT have Graves'. I have proptosis on my left eye due to trauma. CT Scan is normal. 1.5mm of protrusion. Am I a candidate for a fat decompression? can you elaborate on the purpose of the orbital fat, the fat decompression surgery, and the possible complications?
It makes no sense to have a fat decompression for 1.5 mm of proptosis.
