Can A Left Occipital Skull Reduction Be Done To Look Like The Right Side?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I sent two photos … one for my head from its right side and I like it but the other one from left side there is huge elevation like rock in my occiput … is it possible to make the left side like the right and how ?? also I want to know how the procedure get arranged and how much does it cost??
Thanks in advance
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. It appears to make the left side of the back of your head look like the right this will require bone reduction to do so. The amount of reduction to achieve that change sees to be within the amount of bone that can be safely removed. But ideally one should have a CT scan to measure the actual differences in bone thickness.
