Will I Lose Any Hair After Occipital Knob Skull Reduction?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi, I’m considering surgery to reduce my occipital knob. Are there risks for this kind of procedure? What kinds of scar would I expect? Is there any chance I could lose hair?
A: In answer to your occipital knob reduction questions:
- Occipital knob reduction surgery has no significant surgical risks.
- It is done through a 1 inch incision which heals well and leaves no visible scarring.’
- No hair is shaved for the procedure nor is there any resultant hair loss from doing the surgery.
