How Can I Correct My Flat Head?

Q: Dr. Eppley,I have a flat head & need it corrected. Question. How much is it? how long safe is the procedure? How long is the procedure? How long is the healing time?

A:The term ‘flat head’ can mean different locations on the skull. For now I will assume it is a flat back of the head which is the most common flat head correct requested. Placing an implant on the outside of the skull is a perfectly safe procedure, just like placing an implant on the bone anywhere else on the face or body. Most custom skull implant surgeries takes 90 minutes to 2 hour to perform. Healing time usually refers to recovery which in aesthetic skull implants means swelling and how long does it take to resolve enough to walk around in public without being noticeable….7 to 10 days after the procedure.
