Diet Causes Head Size To Shrink?
Hi doctor. Every time I go on a diet, my head gets smaller, my cheeks also go taper. I get TN several months ago, which causes my BB to rise 23kg from the initial weight because of a severe depression that runs into my body. I plan on mvd and diet after mvd. my head shrinking when dieting is the teflob cotton safe? or can it shift from the original place because the fat on my head is reduced so that it is loose? thx
Since you have often asked about the trigeminal neuralgia problem and its actions, I assume you already know the basic information. First must be straightened first, the diet does not cause the size of the head to shrink. Fat on the face and neck will indeed thin out if a person manages to go on a controlled diet. But the size of the head or the size of the skull (including facial bones) will never shrink. I assume you have read a lot about the MVD procedure. As you might know, the procedure involves the release of nerves that cause pain, from the blood vessels that press on them. This action is carried out on the brain field, not on the face.
Teflon sponge will be placed between the trigeminal nerve and the vessels that press on it. This sponge is placed on nerves in the brain stem, not on the peripheral nerves on the face. So, as you can understand, Teflon will be in the brain, while the brain volume will not be affected by the diet no matter how hard you diet. Thus, the location of Teflon sponges will not shift due to your diet.
Thus my explanation, hopefully can be understood. Regards.
