The cost of skull reshaping?
Hi. I wanted to know how much it would cost and how the procedure would work to fix a skull that slopes upward and makes a bump on top then falls very flat in the back. Similar to brachycephaly head shape. I need this procedure done to finally live a normal life. It has affected me so negatively it has stopped me from accomplishing my goals due to the constant bullying. Please help.
Correction of Cranial or Skull boney contour irregularities can be very expensive. Often, a plastic surgeon & neurosurgeon are required. These are not minor procedures.
This type of procedure might be covered by some insurance carriers. Look for a CranioFacial Surgeon in your area and consider a consult to address your concerns.
