Hair Transplant over healed scar tissue

Question: I had a cyst removed from my skull 3 years ago and when the wound healed, it didn't grow hair follicles. Is it possible to transplant hair follicles over the scar?

Answer: It depends on the nature of the scar and if the scar tissue has blood supply. It is sometimes possible to successfully transplant hair into scar tissue from a healed wound. Blood supply in scar tissue is less than in normal tissue. Blood cells, including oxygen-rich red blood cells, arrive to help build new tissue and increase the viability of newly transplanted follicles. Therefore, sufficient blood supply necessary for successful hair transplant session.
