The orbit is a short structure of the face really important, not only esthetically but also functionally, which is highly involved in facial trauma. This study presents a report of a patient traumatized by a physical aggression in the orbital region, presenting a blowout type fracture, which was proposed surgical correction of orbital fracture. Then a reduction of the fracture by internal fixation and titanium mesh adaptation was performed. The procedure achieved success in relation to the complaint of diplopia due to clearing the eye muscles that wore stucked before, and resorption of fat retained in the maxillary sinus due to trauma. Thus, in this case the rehabilitation procedure of traumatized structures was essential for recovering the ocular function of the patient.
