Can Skull Heightening Be Done With Fat Grafting?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I feel like my head is too small, I was wondering if I can make it taller with an implant or fat graft?

A: Only an implant can make the head taller. (skull heightening) mFat grafting for skull augmentations does not work. The height increase with the immediate placement of a skull implant is 10 to 12mms. With a first stage scalp expansion that can be increased to 20 to 25mms. of height.
