Is A Third Skull Implant For The Back of the Head Possible?

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I’ve had two past skull implantation surgeries with you in the past few years. I would like to find out if a third implant is possible and set up a virtual consultation. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

A: Good to hear from you. It has been two years since your 2nd skull implant. Your last skull implant, placed in 2021, was 260ccs. That is a very large skull implant for the back of the head. The question is not whether a larger skull implant can be placed but how much bigger can it accommodate. The amount of implant size increase with each subsequent implant replacement becomes less. I think the last volume increase (implant 1 to 2) was a 100% change. That would be far less incremental change this time. (implant 2 to 3, 25% increase)
