Can Fat Injections Help Reduce The Appearance of Scalp Cutis Verticis Gyrata?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to get more information on the CVG (cutis verticis gyrata) Can Foperation the doctor performed on the scalp using fat that was harvested from the body, was it successful at adding volume to the lines of the cvg and what side effects did the patient get? I have some lines and was wondering if this operation would be successful, if you can message me back at me email for more information I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Fat injection grafting works best in mild CVG where the linear lines are not deep and inverted depressions…like yours. It does help soften them but doesn’t completely eliminate them.
