I have a jagged, indented scar on my nose from injury. What is the best course of action to minimize its appearance?

The skin is lumpy and grayish and did not fuse together after sutures.

It's impossible to give specific advice without photos or meeting you in person. However, in my experience, the two best options for nasal scars are typically either resurfacing (sanding or laser) or scar revision surgery depending upon the nature of the scar tissue. Seek an in person consultation for specific advice.
