If the scar is ugly and causing significant cosmetic concern you should get it removed by a plastic surgeon rather than resorting to conservative methods.

Hi Edwardo

Scar you are having can be treated by laser therapy for which you should consult a dermatologist near you. However depending on your scar, you may also need scar revision surgery. You can mail me your picture so that i can guide you better :-)
