Have You Ever Seen Hair Regrow Over Skull Reduction Areas?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to know if you guys have ever experienced a patient that had undergone a sagittal crest reduction at your clinic if he (or she) ever got hair regrowth as a result from it, did you guys ever experience such a case? Like lets say for example a person that was experiencing hair thinning or male pattern baldness and after the surgery he started to grow his hair back.

A: That I have not seen or been told by any patient that it has occurred. Nor would I expect it that biologic reaction to occur. The skull bone and its shape has no influence on hair growth in the overlying scalp.
