I had a surgery to remove a nevus in my head, but i had problems and now i had a keloid scar . It doesn't grow hair over the scar, and it's big in my opinion, i don´t like it because i can't cut my hair very short. I'd like t know what can i do to reduce it, maybe a surgery?, and if i had a surgery would i have a scar again?, does a natural way to treat the scar exist?. Thank you.

Treatment of scalp scar
In looking at your photos, I believe you have a widened scar but not a true keloid. There are a number of surgical options to improve the scar and decrease the non hair bearing area. These options include scalp advancement/rotation flaps, tissue expansion with an implant, and hair transplant surgery. To determine which of these options would be best in your case, see a local board certified plastic surgeon. Best wishes.
