I just had a cranioplasty in the left side of my head, my head shape is abnormally shaped now. Will it return to normal?

I just had a cranioplasty in the left side of my head, my head shape is abnormally shaped now. Will it return to normal?

Most likely: This would depend on the nature of the cranioplasty. At this time, many of the bone flaps that are placed are made via computer modeling of a synthetic bone flap. These tend to fit very well and the abnormal head shape is likely from swelling of the overlaying skin/muscles which improves. If the cranioplasty was made from "bone cement", there may be some lumps and bumps that are seen. ...Read more

What if a truly ugly person is abnormally obsessed with scarring on face. he suffers sad due to this, covers face, visits dermatolist.is this bdd?

It there is: significant scarring and the person's reaction is appropriate in relationship to skin - that is probably not body dysmorphic disorder. I see that you are on Accutane which means that you likely have fairly serious acne. If this is causing you to suffer - consider seeing a therapist to help you learn to love yourself.
