Scar tissue, removed from visual cortex. Had epileptic surgery. Would it lead to dementia and alzheimer's?

A person had epileptic surgery in their youth and as a result had scar tissue removed from the visual cortex. Are there any long-term consequences they should be aware of (could it cause any impairments later in life etc.)?
In addition, what are the possible long-term effects on the brain as a result of PTSD? Could it lead to other conditions such as Dementia or Alzheimer's if not treated?

THank for asking to HCM
Brain surgery,, if any thing goes wrong during operation or after operation that could manifest immediately but nothing such thing happened and it may not be happened in future too, still you have to keep a close watch on any sign and symptoms related with brain, periodically imaging study is necessary, have nice day.
