Dr. Helena Taylor and Dr. Stephen Sullivan and their colleagues have published their most recent research findings in The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal. Their research on cranial (skull and forehead) remodeling was featured in the journal and their image was selected for the cover! They used 3D imaging to assess the postoperative head shape of patients who had undergone cranial remodeling for metopic synostosis. With their surgical techniques and imaging technology, they found that cranial reconstructions approximated the foreheads of normal controls, and reconstructions were stable at more than 1-year follow-up. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan perform facial and cranial surgery for both reconstructive and cosmetic reasons including trauma, cancer, transgender facial and forehead remodeling, and congenital anomalies.
