Can Skull Augmentation By Bone Cements Just Change The Shape Or Make It Bigger Also?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi I just found out that there is a possibility to change the shape of the skull and searched a bit about the ways to do so. When you use bone cement how much of the result can it show, dose it only change the shape or can it also get a bit bigger?
A: The use of bone cements for aesthetic skull augmentation is a near historic procedure. The use of custom skull implants is the contemporary method which adds 3X the volume, has an assured shape and can be placed through smaller scalp incisions.
