Can Skull Reshaping Surgery Cause Brain Infections?

Q: Dr. Eppley, What are the chances of getting brain infections or any other risks during the cranioplasty?

A: There is a zero chance of brain infections with cranioplasy. All aesthetic skull reshaping procedures are performed on the outside of the skull not the inside. We do not come close to the dura mater let alone violate it into the subdural space.
