No, Ainsley did not have surgery. She is too mild. Her head is still quite bumpy along her metopic and sagittal near her former anterior soft spot and along her coronals. She was diagnosed (without CT as mild metopic and partial sagittal). I understand that the dips on the coronals are due to the head expanding along the coronals as it cant expand as much as it wants to along the metopic. But all in all, she is way too mild for surgery. Head is still growing and the shape is okay. We havent seen a CFS in over a year, but she sees the ophthalmologist every three months due to her juvenile arthritis and eye problems that come with that. The ophthalmologist checks her for pressure each time and she is fine.
I added some new pictures in an album called 33 months. I think you can see mild pinching in the head shots and the mildest trig in the birdseye shots. She has good brow bones, but above them, her forehead isnt quite curved as it should be, rather it is very slightly pointed. Again, very mild.

Thanks for sharing, my little one is now 15 months with mild metopic, but we have a bad system here in australia so we only see a paediatrician - he actually refuses to send us to the cranial facial unit because he thinks its too mild. Im glad you posted, will now take him to an opthamologist. Ainsley is just divine, very hard to tell she is metopic.
