Dermis fat graft implantation has been used for decades to augment orbital volume and surface area in patients with congenital anophthalmia as well as those suffering complications of secondary anophthalmia following enucleation. It is most commonly performed as a means of socket reconstruction in patients with an exposed or extruded orbital implant and to prevent socket contracture. In this video, a dermis fat graft is harvested from the buttock and implanted into an anophthalmic socket for treatment of exposure of orbital implant in the right socket of a patient who was status post enucleation in both eyes for painful blind eyes.
