Orbital rim deficits are a feature of metopic, unilateral coronal, and bilateral coronal craniosynostosis. Several procedures have been developed to address this issue, but relapse to the preoperative hypoplastic deformity and stunted growth of the fronto-orbital region are common. The authors describe a technique modification of the conventional lateral canthal advancement referred to as the orbital rim “tilt” procedure, which aims to preserve inferior bony support for the orbital rim and create projection with optimal proclination of the fronto-orbital complex.
