How Can I Treat My Mild Case Of Brachycephaly?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi there, I’m a 27 year old male, recently gone bald to reveal what seems to me to be a mild case of brachycephaly. It seems like you have treated patients with the same problem to some great results. Looking to discuss possible solutions. I consulted with a craniofacial specialist in the UK and he said he didn’t think there was much he could do, besides shaving down the actual skull, which I wouldn’t do. Hoping there’s a less drastic remedy available. 

A: Brachycephaly implies a flatness to the back of the head for which augmentation would be the best aesthetic procedure…not shaving the bone which is exactly the opposite of what should be done. A custom skull implant works well for this type of augmentation.
