The issues that you are dealing with now from the old oil burns are unfortunate and complex - but do have solutions. Providing you with explicit answers is impossible by online communication. I would suggest that you obtain a few consultations with board certified plastic surgeons who have experience in the treatment of burn scars. You can then make a decision as to which approach, if any, you would like to pursue. This will not be a one stage treatment if you desire significant improvements.
