Can The Flat Back Of My Head Be Made More Round After Prior Bone Cement Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had surgery done on the back of my head in 2011 I believe. The back of my left side head was so flat and the flat part was gone after the surgery. Even though the flat part was gone overall my head is still flat. Over the years as I got older I lost my hairs a lot so I don’t have enough hairs to cover my ugly head shape. Can you make my head round and presentable?

A:Back in 2011 the only skull onlay augmentation method that was available was different types of bone cements which have their limitations. Today I no longer use bone cements for aesthetic augmentations and this has been replaced by a custom made skull implants which offer far superior results in terms of both shape shape and volume…often 3 to 5X more than what bone cements could achieve.
