Hi Dr. Rassman,
I am 24 years old and in May 2006 i fell off from the 2nd floor. I managed to hit my head on the 5 inch water pipe on the 1st floor and then fell directly on my head on the ground floor. I had a skull fracture and multiple fractures on the plate below the skull. I was operated 3 times and the surgeon gave a cut 2mm above the hairline just above my forehead. Now there is a 6-7 inches scar where people say the hair follicles are dead and you will never get a hair growth in that area.
Dr. please help me and provide me with a solution that can cause hair growth in that area. I oil my hair on a regular basis and also apply dry coconut but I see no results.
Hair loss from neurosurgery or a craniotomy can be easily addressed with a hair transplant directly on to the scar. We have many patients in your situation. Generally you will need more than one surgery to adequately cover your scar, but this mainly depends on how short you keep your hair. See here for more.
Dry coconut won’t regrow hair, but I’m sure your scalp will smell nice.
