Will Skull Augmentation Improve My Migraines?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi! I’m interested in the bone cement filling in the back of my head. I also have migraine so is it possible that this could be partly covered by my insurance? Thank you!

A: Thank you for your inquiry. No form of back of the head skull augmentation, whether done by bone cement or a custom skull implant, is intended to or will relieve migraine symptoms. This is an aesthetic procedure not a medical one.
