Is excision of scar post cranial surgery bald spot on top of head scalp possible?

Can .5 inch wide by 1.5 inch scar, creating a bald spot, in frontal top hairline near bang area be excised to bring hairlines together?

Thank you for sharing your question. Unfortunately without a full series of photographs it is difficult to offer a definite recommendation but based on the dimensions supplied you should be able to have your current scar replaced for ideally a thinner one, better camouflaging the areas of hairloss. Hope this helps.

Apply Plato's Scar Serum followed by FUE to help reduce the alopecia caused from the scar.
