My son was 8 when he got a small prick and some fluid was sitting on the prick, i removed it and put some antiseptic. It healed but he had itching sensation and i observed after 6 months he had elevated region there. I showed to the doctor in Nepal, a general surgeon said it is a kind of benign cyst and can be removed so got it removed but there remain a circular scar that couldn't be covered by hair.
After a year of first surgery we got another surgery done by a renowned plastic surgeon in Nepal. The operation was successful and scar was almost like a thin line, but after a week around the scar hair fell off and the scar became vertical and long in length. We showed to him again and he said the skin got sretched.
Now we are in US and he is senior in high school, he is been covering it by gel etc. and doesn't swim or participate in sports. I consulted plastic surgeon in DC he says wait till he completes his growth otherwise again we might have same result or worst. Will hair implant help? Please help me.

finally i got my son's hair implanted in Virginia surgicals at mclean, VA. it cost me about $1400. I got it done in May 25th and now in Aug i can see some hair grown in the scar area, though the hair growth right now is pretty scanty. However i am so thankful to them. I also went to some expensive places for consultation but the suggestion was same as was in Virginia surgicals. I think its an art and experience rather than doctors degrees that matters in at least hair implant kind of technique. In other places it was about $5000.00 which was quite expensive and i am sure the result would have been same. i have to wait for some more time before the growth is seen fully, however so far the result is encouraging.
