Can 1.5Inches Of Skull Bone Be Removed From The Back Of The Head?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can my skull be cut down 1 to 1.5 inches from back and my face become normal?

A: How much skull reduction can be done from the back requires an x-ray to evaluate the thickness of the bone. But even at the thickest 1.5 inches of skull reduction can never be done as no one’s skull is ever that thick.
