I want to ask, my brother had a few months ago performed surgery on the head, due to bleeding in the head due to an accident, but after the operation was done, why is the head not back like it was before, his forehead is like a bit deep, different like the people I saw before who underwent the same operation but his head looks normal as before, are there any other alternatives to help restore his head, besides plastic surgery? Answer please

Hello Syafira.

Thank you for the question.

The method of surgery or surgery tries to return to normal or original formation. However, there are several things that affect this normal formation:

formation of head injuries or injuries
fracture formation of the skull
skull bone damage

Based on this, what distinguishes the shape of a person's head after surgery.

Brain hemorrhage is bleeding that occurs in the brain tissue. Head injury is one of the causes of brain hemorrhage. Head injury is the most common cause of death in productive age, so it requires prompt treatment.

After the surgical wound, the wound healing process occurs which consists of several phases:

Inflammation phase. In this phase there is swelling, redness, changes in temperature, and decreased function. This phase lasts 1-3 days.
Epithelialization phase. In this phase the formation of replacement cells for damaged tissue and form scar tissue. This phase lasts up to 2 weeks.
Remodeling phase. In this phase, wound closure and healing occur. This phase lasts from several weeks to months.

In your brother's condition, maybe he is in the healing phase or is swollen, so his shape doesn't look like normal.

It's a good idea to consult with the Neurosurgeon who treats your brother for this.

Hopefully my explanation can be useful.
