Appendix Taken Out, How to Lift Indented Scar 1/2 Inch Above Belly Button? (photo)

I had my appendix taken out at 13, I am now 18. They made 3 incisions one by my pubic bone, the other on my left hip bone and the third 1/2 inch above my belly button. The one above my belly button makes me very self conscious. I am not an overweight person but this scar like folds into my belly button now and is making my whole belly button look deformed. Is there a cream or treatment I can use to lift this scar so it doesn't fall into my belly button like it does? PLEASE HELP ME

Two options:

1. Surgical scar revision where the scar will be hidden within your umbilicus

2. Fat injections ( micro fat grafts)

See board certified plastic surgeon.

Good luck
