Can Skull Reduction Shave Off 1 to 2 Inches Of Head Circumference?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a question about your skull reduction procedure for bigger heads? Is it still done? And is can it really shave of 1-2 inches of head circumference? Thanks!

A: Circumferential measurements are not a good method to determine the reductive changes that can be done for larger heads. It is more about reducing certain protruding areas that make it look big.
