I have a scar in my hairline. Is removal or revision possible? It's causing a bald spot.

Can a scar bald spot in the hairline about 1.5 inches long and 1/2 inch wide created from scalp neurosurgery be removed to move the hairlines together at the top of my scalp near the bang area? And does such a surgery ever make the problem worst, thus, is risky surgery?

Your scar can likely be improved with a revision. I recommend evaluation with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine how much improvement can be made. Best wishes.
