Jeremy Piven's Cranial Conundrum

1/5/2010 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has gotten to the bottom of Jeremy Piven's top -- that mysterious scar on the back of J.P.'s melon.

The "Entourage" star tells us he got banged up bad doing theater work back in the day -- so bad it left big scars on the back of his head.

Piven -- who was photographed in Hawaii -- tells us on December 17, he went under the knife for a "scar minimizing procedure." We never heard of it either, but supposedly it reduces the scarring. But Piven says he had no idea post-op scarring would be so prominent.

So what's Jeremy gonna do? He says he was thinking of shaving his head but can't because of continuity problems with "Entourage."

Our advice -- chicks dig scars.

Theater injuries?!?! WTF kind of theater was he doing? Just fess up and admit you're going bald, dude. Let's all just hug it out...

That is absolutely, without a doubt, a hair transplant scar! What a liar! The only thing that could have happened to him for that scar to be an improvement is he either had the top of his head ripped clean off or he had hair replacement surgery. Considering its common knowledge that his hairline is ever changing, I'm going with the latter.

If he had a 'scar revision' then he either needs to get his money back or see a good lawyer.

That’s a new scar, it’s to pink/red to be an old scar. Why don't these people just fess up, I would rather hear the truth than hear them lie about their procedures. I’m sick of people not being accountable for their actions!!! Blaming it on an old injury!

I say hair plugs too. Maybe find a pic of Jon Gosselin that shows his scar and compare the two, or talk to that plastic surgeon who's always itching to chat you up.

That's the scar you get when you donate your brain for medical science. Many actors have them.

That's definitely a hair transplant scar...probably mega-session hair transplant. Just look at his old photos and videos and you'll see the difference in his hairline.

That is a scar from a hair transplant procedure. They take out a strip of the hair at the base of his head to transplant onto the top of his head.
