This animation has been released by Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham to illustrate the surgery that Malala will undergo.
The straight line in the video shows where the bullet entered and exited Malala's head.
It then shows the section of Malala's skull that is missing, and how a moulded titanium plate will be fitted to cover this.
The final part of the video shows the small electronic device that will be fitted to her left ear to improve her sense of hearing. She can still hear normally through her right ear.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
Doctors have said they plan to carry out two procedures to reinforce Malala Yousafzai's skull and to restore hearing to her left ear.
