Does The Scar From An Occipital Skull Reduction Disappear?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to know the costs of skull reduction surgery and if you are able to reduce the size of the back of my head it’s kind of long and how long the scar takes to disappear.

A: By your description it sounds like an occipital skull reduction but I would need to see a side view picture of your head to confirm.

No incisional scar completely disappears, it is only a question of how inconspicuous it may appear. Full scar maturation takes a full 4 top 6 months to occur.
