In your case there is a pigmented scar over the face that is present since almost 14 years now....and that is a very long time....Usually such old scars can be difficult to treat ,,,but then it might improve with treatment....I think you should try medical therapy first before thinking straightaway about surgical treatment.....There are various lightening agents that are available nowadays which can improve the pigmentation,,,and if medical therapies dont work, then certain other modalities like chemical peels, dermabrasion or lasers can also be used,,,,So i would recommend that you visit a dermatologist so that the nature of the wound scar can be properly assessed and you can be guided accordingly,,,,

Hope it works

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not described the extent and exact location..
There can not be any harm from it...
The only purpose of treatment is cosmetic.
Plastic surgery will replace it with a thin scar...
A dermatologist can do several interventions - but they are time consuming and you will need patience and perseverance..

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
