Scar mark. It may be possible to reduce it surgically,.One has to see the scar,its depth,width,colour etc to know the possibilities.It is best to visit a Plastic Surgeon to know the best options.

Hi!,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
There are various treatment which one can go for depending upon the look & depth of the scar.One semi invasive procedure is by LASER called laser ablation.You might require multiple sessions at one moth interval .Secondly one can go for is surgical excision where in you might be left with a linear stitch marks.Thirdly,if your scar is depressed then you can take filler injections over the scar,which would lift the scar temporary for say 10 months or so.So plz consult a plastic surgeon for the same or a cosmetic laser specialist.
Take care,
Dr.Chawda
