It is important to know the course of your disease since it is best to consider surgery after the disease process has burned itself out otherwise the results might not be appreciable in the long term. The treatment of Romberg's disease varies but the general method is filling in of the atrophic tissues. Depending on the area involved, a variety of materials can be used. It is generally not advisable to use fillers for a large area because of their cost and the need for refilling a couple of times. The best material is either fat grafting or a dermofat graft. There is a degree of absorption in the long run which can be quite unpredictable so that revisions can be needed and because of which the area is overfilled in the initial stage. Ultimately, however, the fat or dermofat graft that tends to stay stays for a long duration of time and gives appreciable results.
