Can Three Areas of Skull Augmentation Be Done At The Same Time?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’ve wanted to get skull augmentation surgery done for a while, probably 3 procedures if not all together, the frontal, temporal and back of the head procedures and i was wondering what the cost would be. I don’t want an extreme change but to make my forehead a bit more round in shape and more prominent i guess and possibly near my brow bones or cheekbones too if possible. I was wondering if they’d have to be done all at once or not, what the cost would be etc.

A: Thank you for your inquiry. You are referring to skull augmentation in which you reference the forehead, temporal and back. Since the scalp will only permit so much augmentation to occur (unless one does a first stage scalp expansion), it is important to prioritize the areas of concern. Based on your description of your forehead /temporal objectives I would assume that is a priority area as it is also the most visible. That would be done as a combined implant in one surgery.
