Skull Reshaping

Skull reshaping (skull contouring) is a surgical procedure that is typically used to reshape the skull to give it a more uniform, oblong shape. Another cause of skull reshaping is the condition called craniosynostosis. This is where the growth pattern of the infant’s skull changes due to one or more joints of the skull, fusing permanently. The procedure is ideal for individuals who are unhappy with the shape of their skull, or who have congenital skull abnormalities.

Frequently Asked Questions

The size and scope of the skull reshaping procedure will obviously affect the extent and length of the recovery. With the exception of the very largest skull reshaping procedures, recovery is usually quicker than one would think. Recovery is mainly about whatever swelling and bruising occurs, how visible it is and how long it takes to go completely away. I place no after surgery restrictions on physical activity or showering. (Which can be done immediately) Thus recovery is largely about how one looks and feels.

Other than the potential of some minor hair loss along the incision site (which I work hard to prevent), no form of skull reshaping surgery causes hair loss. The scalp has a tremendous blood supply and has extensive blood vessel connections from all over the scalp. Even the longest scalp incision with extensive scalp elevation does not affect hair growth. 

While a shaved head would certainly make many aesthetic skull procedures easier, I do usually modify one’s existing hair style in any way. While working through and around hair can be challenging, it does not increase the risk of infection. Keeping one’s existing hairstyle also makes the patient’s recovery less noticeable.

The need for before surgery x-rays must be determined on a procedure basis. Many skull reshaping procedures do not.

The typical risks of any aesthetic surgery such as infection, bleeding or fluid collections are actually very rare in the skull/scalp. The most common adverse issues all revolve around the aesthetic outcome. How well was the shape change achieved, is it symmetric and how well did the incision heal. Revisional procedures in skull reshaping surgery is not rare because of these issues and averages collectively in the 10% to 15% range. Smaller procedures have very low rates of revision while larger procedures would be understandably higher.

Dr. Cone and his staff were amazing. They took such good care of me and my daughter like family. Highly recommend for adult and kids! Esther Cheung-Phillips
These guys are awesome! The personal care given by Dr. Langevin is absolutely second to none. You will feel like the only patient there Skeeter Ham
From beginning to end Dr. Langevin and his staff took care of me in the most excellent way. From scheduling all the way to post op, they never made me feel like a number but a human that was in good hands. I really appreciated the personal call from Dr. Langevin- not from his staff but from him. That is rare these days to have doctors call you themselves to check on you after surgery. I couldn't be more happy with my results. Aguerra Love
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cone at Wellspring. Their entire staff is incredibly kind and obviously care about their patients. Crystal was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. They did a removal of a large facial nevus for me and I am so happy with the results! The entire thing has been truly lifechanging for me. I am very grateful for Dr. Cone & his team and look forward to seeing them when I go for my follow-up visit. Kaylie Peterman
My experience so far has been amazing, even though my anxiety is over the roof when it comes to Dr's. Dr.Cone and his staff have been awesome and make me feel as comfortable as they can. I got otoplasty done and I can't wait for the final results, I do definitely recommend this place for anything else you'd like to get done. I do plan on getting other things done in the Future and without a doubt this is the place! Thank you Dr.Cone, Crystal, Brandi, & Cici you all are the best! Dori Dori
