How to get rid of a scar left by a carbuncle on my knee ?

I have this flat circular dark scar left by carbuncle for almost 7 years. Is there a way to improve its color? I have consulted a dermatologist before and she said that surgery is not the best solution since the scar was deep beneath the skin and it s located above the knee . There s a possibility that the wound will open and it won t give a nice result. Hope you can help me. Thanks for your time.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You may consult Plastic surgeon for scar revision surgery. If it is not recommended, microderm abrasion or laser therapy may help ton lighten the scar. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do exercise daily and have good diet control for your Diabetes if you have.
