Exophtalmous following surgery
Exophthalmous following orbital floor fracture is not uncommon and caused by the orbital volume reduced following placement of orbital plate or from scarring/welling that has filled out your orbital volume. You should be patient and give at least one to three months for the swelling to go away.
