Hi, I am a 21 year old black female. When I was maybe 2weeks old I had surgery on my eyes and the doctor cut my hair on the sides to put an IV in. My hair never fully grew back. Their is a very little amount of hair on each side. I haven’t tried any meds or talk to any doctors yet. Will this ever grow completely?

With my inability to examine you, there is little I could say about the diagnosis. Generally, you can wait up to one year to see if hairs from trauma or surgery scar will ever grow back. In your case, it has been 21 years… so it would be highly unlikely for it to regrow now.
