The objective of this article is to show a case of fronto-orbital reconstruction with prefabricated polymethyl methacrylate prosthesis. A 35-year-old male with alleged history of trauma following road traffic accident 3 months back reported with unaesthetic scar and deformity in right supraorbital region to us. As there was no functional deformity, the management was aimed at correcting the contour and esthetic only. The correction was achieved by overlaying the defect with a polymethyl methacrylate implant fabricated over a three-dimensional stereolithographically printed rapidly prototyped model. Postoperative phase was uneventful and esthetic outcome was satisfactory. The patient after 4-year follow-up reported with no discomfort and definite improvement in facial contour.
