What to do about eye sockets decompressed from fat loss

I had severe damage from laser treatments for Rosacea. It melted all the soft tissue within my entire head, thinned/dried my skin and destroyed all elasticity.

The skin on my upper and lower lids is so fragile and thin, will a fat graft look lumpy or will it stretch out my skin?
