Abstract

In this article, we describe an alternative procedure to restore the retrobulbar volume in enophthalmic patients. We report the case of a patient with a late enophthalmos we submitted to retrobulbar lipofilling to correct the defect. The preoperative assessment and the surgical technique are described in detail. The volume of fat injected was 3.2 mL, with a satisfying increase in exophthalmometry measurements. The procedure was well tolerated without complications. Retrobulbar lipofilling for enophthalmos appears to be a safe alternative technique for orbital volume enhancement. It avoids the use of alloplastic materials and allows to obtain good cosmetic results with an easy technique and minimal donor-site morbidity.
