How Can My Occipital Crown Deficiency Be Fixed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a Occipital Crown Deficiency in my skull that’s why I feel really bad about this. Is there any chances to reshape it without risks. So i will look normal as others.

A: I would need to see some pictures of your occipital crown deficiency to determine whether a custom skull implant would be the correct solution. By description alone certainly sounds like it would. While no surgery is not without risks, skull reshaping surgery in general and custom skull implants in particular have the lowest risk of almost any plastic surgery that I know.
