How to cure dent on skull?

Hello, since i was a child I have had a significant dent in my skull. Now that I am an adult with male pattern baldness I wish to have something done about it. I read a skull dent can be repaired with bone cement injection. How doable is such a procedure?

Hello,

The repair of bone dent depends on its size. In case the dent is small in size then bone dent cement can help you. In case the dent is a large one then it is best to get a hair transplant done.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
