You need to see a doctor for an examination to understand your options on repairing your hair line.

You need to see a doctor for an examination to understand your options on repairing your hair line.  The scar will always be there from your forehead reduction surgery and you need to plan out what may happen if you have frontal receding.

Linear scar

First you dont having a male balding pattern .you just lower your hair line and fill the temples because of aesthetic reasons . This hair line is your mature genetically coded "normal" hair line just like your eye color. But because of linear scar of  forehead reduction surgery hair can be transplanted lower to the highest crease.I advise you to have a FUE operation of 31800-2100  grafts  . we can determine frontal hair line according to your upper crease.

Linear scar from surgical hairline lowering

This is a common problem in men more than women as men develop male balding and recede their hairlines leaving the scars show. A Hair Transplant is ideal to address this. Unfortunately, now your are committed to follow back your hair loss if you should develop it with more hair transplants. I would get a doctor to prescribe you finasteride to slow down the progression and then find an experienced doctor to fix it the right way.
