Abstract

Orbital volume augmentation to address enophthalmos and hollowing of the superior sulcus has been described with a variety of materials and from a variety of approaches.1-4 A common location for volume augmentation is the inferomedial orbital wall; this surface is often the one that was expanded related to orbital trauma, and it is easily accessed through hidden conjunctival or caruncular incisions.
