Can I Get A Skull Implant That Will Lengthen My Head To Match My Body?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have heard good things about your work! I have always been self conscious about my head for two reasons. First, I have a very strong brow with a slanted forhead (not picured) and I have a head that seems to be very short in length and not fit my body. I would be interested in a surgery that could add an implant an lengthen my head to match my body. Also, being a 5’8″ male, any extra height would be grealty appreciated. Based on the picture, do you have any advice or experience simular to mine?
A: Unfortunately I do not see any attached pictures. But conceptually what you are referring to in regards to lengthening the head with a skull inplant and maybe even raising it some is very possible. The key questions are the amount of volume needed to do so, how much can the scalp stretch to accommodate this needed volume and whether this can be done in one stage or would require two stages. (1st stage scalp expansion)
