Can OsteoBone Be Used To Build Up The Back Of The Head?

Q: Dr. Eppley, How much does back of head surgery cost? I also have indentations on the side of my head. Not sure what caused it, but I suspect some kind of bone loss and it really bothers me. the back part more than the sides. Do you use OsteoBone?

A: 1) If you want to use OsteoBone this will require a large scalp incision to place and contour, known as a full coronal scalp incision from ear to ear across the top of they head

2) Using custom skull implants made of solid silicone these can be placed with much smaller incisions, usually a low horizontal one of less than 9 cms on the back of the head.
