Can I Get A Skull Augmentation For The Top, Back And Sides Of My Head?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a general quick question.
Can a skull reshaping surgery of the back , top and sides increase the skull size and circumference?
A: You are referring to a custom skull implant that covers the top, back and sides of the skull. Such an implant can augment all of these areas within the limits of how much the overlying scalp can stretch to accommodate it. In most of such cases of skull augmentation it is usually necessary to do a first stage scalp expansion to get the type of head augmentation result most people seek who would ask this question.
