Best Tape and Adhesive for Skin [Help with hearing implant attachment]

I am an ABI user (similar to a cochlear implant). Because I do not have a magnet implanted internally, I need to affix a small metal disc to my scalp, and attach a magnet to that.

Here are some pictures of the metal disc enclosed in a duct tape sticker, and the sticker attached to my scalp. http://ift.tt/1Of6W7G
The metal disc inside is #1 size washer I found on amazon.

I currently use duct tape and gorilla glue to get the best hold. It usually lasts for 3-4 days. I have tried medical tape, with less success.

Do you have recommendations for the best tape and adhesive to use on skin, that will last the longest?
