By age 24---: ---your cranial sutures have long since fused and there should be no further deformation of the skull. Your plagiocephaly will not progress at this point in your life.

Not going to change: As an adult, The bones of your skull are fused and not going to change over time. Treatment is reserved for infants whose skull bones are not fused and are malliable.
