Autologous dermis fat graft is an option commonly used for volume replacement in congenital anophthalmic sockets. Hypertrophy of the graft is a very rare complication that can be managed by debulking the graft. Volumetric analysis by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging helps in calculating the amount of fat to be excised while debulking. We report a case of recurrent dermis fat graft hypertrophy managed by debulking with the aid of volumetric analysis. The patient underwent dermis fat grafting at the age of 1, followed by graft hypertrophy at the age of 2 years and recurrent hypertrophy at the age of 6 years. Debulking was done with the aid of volumetric analysis when hypertrophy recurred. The patient is doing well with a stable cosmesis at the last follow-up after 1 year.
