This scar isn't very noticeable, maybe I am not appreciating it in the photos.  If it truly bothers you that much, you may need to consider botulinum toxin treatment first, and then there are other options such as subcision and filler treatments and/or the additional of fractional laser. Nothing will rid you of the scar completely, but there are many options to make the scar improved or less noticeable.  It will take a combination of treatments, I would avoid any scar revision surgery however.  Please see a cosmetic dermatologist or plastic surgeon with experience in treating scars.  I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
