Orbital Muscle Puffiness After Under Eye Grafts?
I had under eye fat grafts performed about 6 months ago. Although the hollowness has disappeared and my eyes look youthful again, I have noticed that now my orbital muscles are protruding/swollen. It was a lot worst right after surgery, but it has been 6 months now and still some puffiness remains. It bothers me because in certain light, it almost looks like have bags. My surgeon says it will go away. However, since it has been 6 months do you believe this will be permanent?
