hello
welcome to health care magic..
Mam,,after any kind of surgery,scar tissue bridges the gap between the 2 incised wounds...and from that scar tissue hair wont develop..
similar to that in the scalp hair wont grow after formation..rest of the places beyond the scar will grow nicely..
regarding your query just 2cm lipomas means only 0.75to 1 cm incision will be there and that minimal area of scar wont be visible to any one unless on very keen observation...so stop worrying about that
hope you understand my answer..
thank you

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
After lipoma surgery there will be thin scar over which hair will not grow but other areas will have good hair growth. By proper hair maintainance you can avoid bald spots if they occur. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Get enough sleep and stay stress free.
