Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     It does not seem reasonable or realistic to suggest some suitable solutions, with this inadequate information provided here... You have not stated your personal habits, family history or co-morbidities, even age, gender...which could have an influence on the diagnosis and outcome...
     When other problems have settled down, see a plastic surgeon – they are experts in this field / the size can be reduced, modified... / excellent chance of improvement, unless you have keloid...
     Psychiatric assessment and assistance can help your Depression / it is reactive – to the situation and you will be very well, no doubt.
     Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
