How Can I Make My Head Shape More Symmetric and Rounder?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to give to my scalp a more asymmetric and rounded shape. From my analysis i just needed to fill some spots to achieve the goal.

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. As a general rule you don’t try to ‘spot’ augment a skull shape unless it has only one small area that is the problem. A far more predictable skull shape is assured when the entire surface is covered with a single implant even if it is very thin. Attached is an example of the general concept as well as the type of change you may be seeking.
