Scar revision surgeries for the scalp do not eliminate scars. There will always be areas of missing hair.
Scalp MicroPigmentation can also be used to hide scars. See video.

Scalp scarring from childhood
Your scar can be treated and you have several options. Some experienced scalp doctors may be able to take out the scar (See Dr. Kabaker) and you may also be able to transplant hair into this scar. Any good hair transplant surgeon should be able to add some grafts to help hide this appearance. You may also consider Scalp MicroPigmentation either combined with surgery or alone, in order to help reduce the appearance of the scar. Start doing the research for really experienced hair doctors in your area who do a lot of reconstruction (and who do SMP/and hair grafting so they know ALL your options and can explain them). FOr something like this you may also end up traveling, but the procedures are not that difficult to go through and the reasults can really be a big improvement.
Hope that helps and Good luck!
