I had brain surgery years ago and it left me with a dent about the size of a dime about 1/2 and inch above the outer side of my right eye. Can fillers be used to fill it up instead of major surgery to fix the bone?

Dent after brain surgery
A dent in the skull after brain surgery may be from a bore hole. This shoudl be evaluated in conjucntion with your neurosurgeon. They may be able to use synthetic fillers to restore the normal contour. This can be done in conjunction with a plastic surgeon.
