Is Cutting out Scar Tissue and Sewing it up with Small Stitches an Effective Scar Revision Method? (photo)

Attached is a picture of a scar on my scalp due to a burn. Hair follicles are longer there do to the smooth scar. I was told that the scar revision method may help, so that I will be able to grow hair in this area again. But, I'm afraid that this scar may too large to do the scar revision method. Please help.
