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.

What kind of idiot has a procedure to reduce scars in his scalp? Does he think we are all total fools? This is a hair transplant scar, and he should just own up to it.

Maybe he should have shaved his head before he got plugs, now he looks like a tool regardless.

That is a hair transplant scar, they remove a back section of your scalp (its where the thickest growth of hair is) and they harvest the follicles and plug them in the front and bald spots!

Mr. Piven is a LIAR!

You know, another guy here brought up the best point here.

What idiot has surgery to reduce scarring on his scalp? Don't we have HAIR that covers those scars?

And, doesn't the surgery to remove the scars LEAVE MORE scars?

But, back to the most important question: who would have surgery to reduce scarring on their scalp?

That just doesn't make any sense at all.

Ok, people.

I HAVE THE ANSWER. I LOOKED IT UP ON GOOGLE. TMZ - you should post some of these:

Since I can't post pics here, I will give you links to pics of hair implant scars.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.regrowhair.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/dr-feller-stapled-closure.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.regrowhair.com/hair-restoration-physicians/visits-to-hair-transplant-clinics/visit-to-dr-alan-fellers-clinic-in-great-neck-ny/&usg=__2E4GUsvc4I9ER3SEH2B6i7BnH-c=&h=419&w=471&sz=38&hl=en&start=14&um=1&tbnid=5yaE-nBC-a7rMM:&tbnh=115&tbnw=129&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dhair%2Bimplant%2Bscars%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1


I know that is a massive link, but just copy and paste it into your window, it will work.

If you don't want to copy and paste these, simply go to Google Images, type in "Hair Implant Scars" and you will see a bunch of scars that look identical to the one Mr. Piven has.

Be sure you go to Google IMAGES.
