In many patients, one-stage reconstruction repairs only the bony orbit, leaving intact the disfiguring enophthalmos. Thus, some filler is needed to restore the normal volume of the orbit. The authors describe a technique to correct such deformation safely and effectively. Data were collected from 30 enophthalmic patients (average age 36.67 ± 11.66 years) who underwent retro-ocular injections of fat globules between August 2014 and July 2018. CT helped identify a safe injection site, and specific CT measurements quantified the volume of fat globules required. There was a significant difference between the preoperative and postoperative values for lateral orbital protrusion (P < .01), superior orbital protrusion (P < .01), and orbital volume (P < .01). Most patients were satisfied with the outcome. There were no significant complications. Injecting fat globules into the retro-orbital area is an effective technique for correcting enophthalmos deformity. © 2020 by Mutaz B. Habal, MD.
