Summary: Simultaneously advancing and medializing the orbital segments in a stable bone bloc constitutes a major advancement in craniofacial surgery. Monobloc bipartition enables destigmatization of the syndromic face by correcting the abnormal orbital axis and interorbital distance. The authors stratified this complex surgical approach into five major steps to facilitate a holistic understanding of the surgical sequence. The rationale for latency and activation periods and the advantages and disadvantages of this technique are described.
