What Type Of Skull Reshaping Procedure Can Be Done To Fix My Pointy Skull And Forehead?

Q: Dr. Eppley, My concern is my forehead shape and the right side of my head is pointy and very, very uneven. Attached are my pictures, what do you recommend?

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. Your forehead and skull asymmetry is apparent and one can debate whether the source is a left sided deficiency or a right sided overgrowth. But what really matters is which skull reshaping treatment approach produces the best aesthetic result…left-sided augmentation or right-sided reduction. (or even some combination of both) Ultimately I would need to see a 3D CT scan of your skull to understand the full topography of your skull bone asymmetry. But in the interim I have done some computer imaging to look at augmentation vs reduction to determine your aesthetic preference.
