What are the options for getting a pilonidal cyst scar removed?

I had a pilonidal cyst removed from my tailbone area about two years ago. The scar is red and indented into my skin. What are the best options for removing this type of scar?

There are a few options, but best to assess your skin in person. The redness can be improved with a laser, and a filler could be considered to plump out the skin, or even potentially re-excising the area.

Without in person visit or even posted photos no way to recommend which surgery is better. Seek IN PERSON opinions...
