I live in upstate New York with my Dad, mom and two sisters. Later on, as I got older, depression played a huge part in my life, too. My parents and sisters have always been there to push me and support me no matter what. My parents were told I would never graduate from high school but in , I did.
Ask a Hairstylist: How to Style Half-Shaved Hair After Surgery
Silly question for girls/women who've had brain surgery - Tuberous sclerosis - Inspire
Welcome to our Hair Consultations column. To request an online hair consultation, follow the instructions here. While a lot about this situation freaks her out, the fact that half of her skull needs to be completely shaved is just the icing on the cake. Rhiannon is undergoing brain surgery and will need to have half her head shaved. She plans to get her hair done before the surgery, as it will give her some sense of control and not leave her future style in the hands of a neurosurgeon!
Petty question considering everything else there is to consider Do they shave the whole head on girls too, or just right along the incision? It depends on the neurosurgeon. I work in neuro rehab near Atlanta 14yrs and we receive adult post crani patients from major hospitals routinely and others from surrounding states on occasion and I've yet to see one that didn't get shaved. That being said when my son had a tuberectomy at Scottish Rite in ATL 6 years ago his neurosurgeon did not shave children regardless of how long their hair was.
Many neurosurgeons remove their patients' hair before surgery. They claim that this practice reduces the chance of postoperative surgical site infections, and facilitates planning, attachment of the drapes, and closure. However, most patients dread this procedure. The authors performed the first systematic review on shaving before neurosurgical procedures to investigate whether this commonly performed procedure is based on evidence.
