Most people ask “is there a back of head surgery?” Some even comment, “why do people want cosmetic surgery on the back of their head?”
Patients who often inquire about this often felt quality of life concerns for being ridiculed for having a flat and sunkenness at the back of their head, or felt very self-conscious about the back of their head not being proportional. They have sometimes reported styling their hair in certain ways or covering their head when they go out in public. Cosmetic surgery for the back of the head is an actual procedure, and if done correctly by an experienced surgeon, can help alleviate these quality of life issues, and create a more harmonious shape to one’s head.
At ITEM Plastic Surgery, cosmetic surgery for the back of the head is done using osteobond, it takes approximately 30~40 minutes and is performed by making 3-4 cm incision on the upper portion of the scalp. If the back of the head is flat without sense of volume, or the portion at the back of the head is substantially sunken, or the head appears to be dented due to severe asymmetry. Then this surgical procedure can modify area into a symmetrical and appropriately voluminous shape.
Pain and discomfort for the procedure is significantly minimized since the surgical procedure is carried out under sleep-induced anesthesia. There is no need for the patient to be hospitalized and they can return home after having recovered from the surgery after about an hour. Patients are able to sleep in supine posture (on their backs) from the day of the surgery. Since it almost completely adheres to the bone much better than silicone implant. The chances of side effects such as seroma (pocket of clear serous fluid that sometimes develops in the body after surgery) are minimized. Moreover, it is a very safe surgical method since it has almost no chemical reaction to the original skull.
The safety of this procedure has been proven in numerous medical papers that tracked patients for more than 30 years. The suture thread (stitches) will be removed one week after the surgery, and patients will be able to carry out fully normal daily life activities after the removal of the suture thread.
