Hi christine,

Before my M surgery, almost 5 years ago, my NS said there would be a 3-4" cut on the top of my head, the top of my head was shaved and I have an 7" Z scar. The length is actually 5" but if you straighten out the Z, you get 7". I looked like Ben Franklin after the surgery with the shave head.

My hair grew back nicely except where the scar is. My hair looks thin there but it is the thick scar which gives that appearance.

I bought "Xfusion" which is a powder product the same color as the hair. You put it on your scalp and there is the illusion of having thick hair.

I bought mine on Amazon.com for $22 and the applicator $10.

It does the job. The scar will not go away but at least I don't look like I am balding on top.
