Can I Get Four Areas Of My Skull Reshaped At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi, I wish to one day undergo this procedure to correct my skull shape, mainly my flat back of the head. However, I would also like work on temporal, sagittal, and frontal (all 4 options in total). My main question was since I couldn’t find anything on your website about all 4 procedures being done at the same thing; is this even possible and if it is, how would it be done? Separate or altogether? Thank you and have a good day.

A: It is not uncommon to work on multiple areas of the skull at the same time, whether this be for augmentative or reductive changes. The limiting factors of multisurface skull reshaping is the location and length of the scalp incisions needed to do it and how much the scar can be stretched at any one time in augmentations.
