A bald American woman who suffers from epilepsy offers a big smile after her head was shaved in a hospital prior to an operation on her brain. Her hair was totally removed before the surgeon cut into her scalp and skull (cranium) to perform a temporal lobectomy, a surgery that can lower the number of seizures, make them less severe, or even stop them from happening. During this medical procedure, the doctor removes some of the temporal lobe of her brain where most seizures start. (2nd of 7 related images.) Model released.
