Skull reshaping/sizing

This is a rather odd situation for someone of my age to be in, but I'm an 18 year old male and I have a skull deformity that was never treated as a child. I'm not sure on the medical name of the problem, but my doctor's referred me to a craniofacial surgeon to get a better opinion.

Basically, my head is abnormally large in width and height and is also slanted to one side, mostly noteably in the forehead area. My hairline has also been 'stretched' back slightly.

This has affected my life severely, so I'm looking into possible surgical options. Just curious as to what can actually be done. Can the entire upper section of the skull be reshaped?..

You should go to the cranialfacial surgeon for a consultation.  It is not possible to advise you without a detailed examination as well as X-rays and other diagnostic tests.
