What is The Recovery From Crown Skull Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am potentially interested in a skull reshaping procedure, specifically crown augmentation. I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me.? How long is the recovery in general? Is hair loss at the incision site common? 

Thank you very much,

A: In answer to your skull augmentation questions:

1) Recovery from any skull augmentation procedure is fairly quick but depends on how you define recovery. Other than swelling, which may or may not drifty down into your face, there are no real physical limitations after surgery other than what feels comfortable.

2) Hair loss around the incision site is very limited to just that of a fine scar line in most cases.
