Will Skull Reshaping Surgery Affect My Memory?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Will I be normal after doing a skull reshaping surgery, and will it not affect my memory. Will skull reshapping restrict me from going to extreme weather conditions. How long does it takes for 100% recovery. 

A: If I interpret your picture correctly your skull shape concern is the bump on the back of your head to which I can provide the following answers to your skull reshaping questions:

1) Such skull reduction has no effect on brain function and thus will not affect memory or any other cognitive skill.

2) There are no restrictions after surgery whether it be sports or going out in any type of weather.

3) Recovery is very quick. 100% recovery will take just a few weeks.
