Can I Get Bone Reduction After Temporal Muscle Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley, hi I was wondering whether if not satisfied with your head shape after removal of the muscle in posterior temporal head reduction (temporal reduction surgery) are you able to have another consultation regarding bone structure or is their certain risks.

A: The posterior temporal bone is quite thin and only a few millimeters can be removed….which makes for a negligible reductive change. It is the muscle removal that makes the major difference. But it can be done but it will not make for any further major head width change.
