An American woman who suffered from epilepsy smiles as her hair grows in and healing continues on the large incision in her head that was closed with stainless steel staples after an operation on her brain. Her hair was shaved off 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 removed some of the temporal lobe of her brain where most seizures start. (6th of 7 related images.) Model released.
