Plastic and ...: Reconstructive surgery. Plastic surgeons have at their disposal an entire palate of ways to change the shape of the skull. It is clearly on your mind and there fore worth investigating. Check with the local Craniofacial Panel which is established in nearly every state. At 17 you may still fall under pediatric guidelines and as a revision to a prior surgery and may be considered "NOT" cosmetic. ...Read more

When a 2 years old child when he was born his skull was deformed will it fix it self?

Look at your baby: pictures. Likely, a suture line of your skull closed prematurely in infancy. You're a bit old for the type of surgery done on infants for premature craniostenosis. If you can't disguise it by a haircut & it really bothers you, ask your doctor for referral to a craniofacial clinic with a neurosurgeon & plastic surgeon who can tell you risks vs. benefits of surgery on an adult. ...Read more

Can high pressure on head, deform, dent or change head shape?

Can high pressure on head, deform, dent or change head shape?

Denting head ?: hello~ your question is not well crafted but I assume you mean pressure to the EXTERIOR of the skull. If so, external pressure can only change the shape of the skull if it is applied BEFORE the sutures in the pediatric skull have fused and by and large that means before 2 years of age. Anterior fontanelle is closed by about 18 months and the sutures fuse then too, so roughly by 2 years of age thx ...Read more
