Hello.welcome.the scar you are having can be easily removed by the plastic surgery.As far as toe is concerned it can be left like that unless it is placed very badly.In such case it can also be corrected.Good luck.

Dear Bhavana,
Thanks for the query. Plastic corrective surgeries can do wonders ! Your problem can be solved by your Plastic surgeon. He will examine you and give you a number of options and operative procedural details. Choose the best one, your parents will also help you to decide the best options.

I have a huge scar on my leg; goes from my ankle to my knee and it was an ER save, so the repair was just done to stop bleeding and they used skin grafts to cover open areas. I had the chance to have plastic surgery in high school, but didn't want to relive all the pain again...and scars aren't always a bad thing. Shows what you have been through and they become a part of you. Either embrace it and deal, or if u really want to get surgery for your toe, go for it. Do what you think is right. I'm sure the toe can be removed, but I'm not a plastic surgeon! Good luck to you
