Would A Back of The Head Skull Implant Make My Hair Look Thinner?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Would getting an implant on the back off the head, to correct flatness cause my hair to look really thin or weird, since the scalp would be stretched out?

A: That is a very good question and the answer is no. The scalp is not stretched enough to visibly increase the infrafollicular distances. It is important to differentiate the more limited scalp stretch that occurs from skull implants from that of what happens in scalp tissue expanders.
