Flat spot on back of skull - other than an implant is there any other option to fill the depression?

An alternative to an implant is fat grafting - Harvesting fat from one area of your body and then injecting it into the flat area. This avoids have a foreign body in the area as well as limits scarring (only small needle injection sites). The downside is that more than one session may be required. I recommend a consultation with a plastic surgeon in your area. Have a blessed day!
PMMA can be made into a patient specific plate with 3D modeling now. These are good fits for such issues. There is also the option of a cranioplasty with a combination of trinity bone graft, PLLA, PRP, a small iliac crest bone graft, BMP, and stem cells. The second option has the advantage of turning into your own bone. You would anesthesia for both procedures.
