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.

Um, okay, so I didn't read all of the posts here, but am I the only person in the world who has seen the movie PCU?! He was totally balding back then and that was in 1994... :)

Why is TMZ protecting him? How many times have you watched TMZ when they show before & after photos of actors. Get real TMZ, show some old pics of Jeremey from the old Ellen show, he was bald. It is totally a scar from hair grafts, I have one too. But Jeremy's was obviously done by a doctor who did a bad job sewing him up. And why would anyone who had that procedure done cut their hair so short. If you have a scar like that, grow your hair 1/2 inch long to cover it. Come on TMZ, re-broadcast it & show the before and afters of Jeremy. Why protect HIM?

I think he went to Treasure Coast Hair Restoration in Florida. We should see the results in six months

It's just a hair plug scar from where the grafted hair follicles were harvested. As soon as his hair grows back, no one will see the scar.



The problem is, just prior to it being surgically transplanted, the area needs to be shaved before the strip of scalp is removed. He should consider a wig during these times or never remove his hat in public.



It's fairly obvious that a man who was nearly bald in the 80's and has a full head of hair in 2010 that it is a transplant! For him to deny that just makes the whole thing comical.

Of course it's a hairplug procedure! I had a hair transplant and I hv the same scar! They take a strip of skin out of the back of the head to get the new hair from it! What a liar! Get out of "the bald man closet", Piven!!!!!!
