What Can Be Done To Correct My Pointy Head Shape?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would be interested in finding out about fixing the shape of my skull (a bit pointy towards the top and flat on the back). See the pictures attached. I just found out about Dr. Eppley’s work here online and am impressed by the results from the photos I saw. Please contact me and let me know.

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. From the front view reduction of the pointy head is usually done by reducing the height of the sagittal crest. (point) The flat back of the head (which I know by your description but have not seen a picture of it, is usually treated by a custom skull implant.

Both the posterior sagittal crest reduction and the augmentation of the flat upper back of the head can be done through the same small incision.
