What Is The Recovery Time From Back Of Head Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I need Head Augmentation. Backside of my head looks flat that’s why I need skull enlargement plastic operation. How much it will cost and what is recovery period? 

Thanks for your prompt response. 

A: When considering a skull implant of that size, it would take a two stage skull augmentation to achieve it. The scalp does not have the ability to stretch over an implant on its own all at one time. 

The recovery from any form of skull augmentation surgery, particularly the back of the head, is remarkably quick. Since it causes no swelling in the face and there are no physical restrictions afterwards one will find the recovery period to be fairly brief.
