Consider tissue expander
Beard Transplantation or Tissue expander procedure
The first one is a beard transplantation which is an easy procedure and if the grafts will be transplanted thickly the bald area will get a good density. You have to wait for 12 month to see the result.
And the second option is a tissue expander procedure.
With this treatment we expand an area (supraclavicular area) at your neck and this will be inflated for 2 month.After two month a second operation would be necessary to transfer the expanded skin on your injury.
Will likely stay the same
To even it out you would need new skin graft from somewhere above the clavicle as a replacement.
The donor site would show also, so you are in a difficult situation.
Sorry for your difficulties.
