(female) I’d had a bald spot since birth, possibly a birthmark and possibly a scar from my extraction. At 20 I had an stapled excision. Now I’m curious, Is hair meant to grow in the area where the staples were, or will there always be a bald line? Is there anything I can do to improve my chances?
The general concept you should understand is that if you have a scar where hair previously existed, regrowth in that area more than likely won’t occur on its own (though it can depend on how the closure method was done). However, transplanting hair into the scar should see growth just as it would if we put it on the frontal hairline area or on the tip of your nose. I’ve performed hair transplants procedures into scarred areas from head trauma, but I’m not sure how big of a bald spot you’re talking about and whether it’d even be worth having a transplant to fix it.
