Can Injectable Fillers Be Used For Skull Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley, the top of my head is flat. Is there any procedure to treat it? I would prefer a filler rather an implant. But let me please know if there is a treatment. Let me also know about risks and fees. 

A: Short of an implant, there are no reliable synthetic fillers or fat injections treatments that are either practical or reliable for skull augmentation. Given that even a small skull implant is a minimum of 50ccs volume one is to going to have to use 50 syringes of a synthetic filler for a comparative effect and a temporary one at that. While fat offers much more volume than injectable fillers at a better cost, its take is notoriously poor in the tight tissues of the scalp The unpredictability of scalp injections also makes them prone to contour irregularities as well..
