Will A Custom Skull Implant Build Up the Back and Top Of My Head?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in a Custom Skull Implant to help with the top ridge on the side profile and make the back of the head more rounded like a typical skull shape.

A:While a custom skull implant can very effectively add volume to the flat back of the head, it is not clear how it would help the top ridge unless the implant design crossed over onto the top as well.
