I have no idea where to ask this, HELP!

Ok, I chose this area because it's the only one I saw that has to do with structural implants. I have an issue with the shape of my skull. Apparently when my dad wacked my head against the statue of liberty when I was 2, it caused some damage and it healed wrong. I'm also wondering if it through the rest of my facial growth out of wack. My forehead slants at a drastic angle that is more aggressive than my nose bridge. Also I have a dip in the middle of my head with the peak height being at the rear of my head. Also, the sides of my skull bulge out on the sides slightly. This skull shape is even MORE emphasized because I was unfortunate enough to take an experimental drug when I was 13 that caused accelerated hair loss. I wear a hat, I've been wearing a hat for years. I use to cover this up with my hair, but now that its almost gone and my hairline has receded by 2.5 to 3 inches, I can't cover it up. People make fun of me and if my hat gets taken off my head the first comment is "ARE YOU BALDING?!"

My question is, is there a process or surgery that can fix my head shape? And if so how much would this cost? I have a suspicion it's effecting my sinuses and causing head aches (I have them constantly and I've learned to just deal with the pain). I just turned 23, but people think I'm some goofy looking 35 year old.

The first picture is the way I look. The second one is the way I wish to look, with a change in my forehead angle, reduction in brow structure, and nose job.

Your head was whacked against The State of Liberty at age two?!?

Are you sure this is sheerly from blunt force trauma, and not at all attributed to any genetic factors?

I could see you benefitting from a chin implant. There are surgeries to build up ones cranial area. If you are interested, I can do some research and fill you in on some more specific info.

At two my family went to see the statue. I was too small to make it up the stairs to the top, so my dad carried me. His arms got tired so he put me on his shoulders. At one part of the stairs near the shoulder of the statue the support beams were lower and my head hit one of the three inch wide bolts on my fathers upstep. It rang the whole statue, the security people at the foot of the statue called the mechanics because they thought there was some sort of structural damage that made the sound. In reality the shell rings when you hit it just right...with a childs head

It might also be genetics. Tests show I have a LOT of testosterone in my body. However, none of my family members have this look. Infact, I don't look anything like my family. Unless this is a genetic defect that has been hiding in my families genes, I don't think it's that.

I am pretty satisfied with my chin. I know it's not perfect but I've already had my jaw moved forward because of a severe overbite issue. The forehead is what is bothering me the most. It's really noticable and unless this is ancient Mayan culture it's difficult to not get made fun of. I would appreciate any info you could give me about cranial modifications. I am guessing my dreams will be crushed by a dollar amount though. :\

Can you post a pic w/o glasses?

I will be sending a private message right now.

newer pics
Here's some newer pics of me. I'm pretty happy with the way I look from the front besides my nose size, but I can live with that. It's my side profile that is bothering me. I wear my hair longer all the time. The only reason it was short was for ROTC and I figured that was the perfect time to get pictures of the skull shape.

Ok I can't get this to allow my images. I'm going to have to doctor them up and I don't have the time right now. I'll get them up as soon as I can

Looking forward to seeing the pics ...
