My son is 3 weeks old and was recently diagnosed with Metopic. Last week we met with a plastic surgeon at Children's Hospital in Boston who diagnosed his metopic as "pretty severe", and recommended the CVR at 8 months of age. Next week we're meeting with the neurosurgeon at Children's, who we believe will recommend the endoscopic. We've spoken by phone/email to a number of other plastic surgeons and neurosurgeons. It seems like all the plastic surgeons (who do not take part in the endoscopic procedure) believe patients should wait for the CVR (and believe aesthetically it's much more successful), and the neurosurgeons recommend the endoscopic. I'm wondering what you all think are the pros and cons of each procedure, and what your experiences have been with each.
Any help in making our decision would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks a lot,
