Is Fat Grafting A Treatment Option for Cutis Verticis Gyrata (CVG)?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I saw a response that you wrote on Is There Surgery For Cutis Verticis Gyrata? at http://eppleyplasticsurgery.com//is-there-surgery-for-cutis-verticis-gyrata/
I was wondering .. how does the fat injections you spoke of work and or is surgery a better option now?
And do you do both?
A: I don’t think trying to cut out the areas, as has been historically done, is a very effective approach and has a risk of just making them worse. Fat injections tend to make them less deep, and while not a ‘miracle cure’ for them. is a less risky treatment option.
