I got burnt by a heater when I was a baby. And my left side of my butt cheek is burned and I'm 18 now. I want to know is there anywhere I can repair the burn mark because now my butt is uneven due to the burn mark. What type of surgery do I need ? & what kind of doctor do I need to discuss this issue with ?

Serial IIT, pulsed dye laser, and fractional resurfacing can improve the scar on your buttock from a previous burn. Raffy Karamanoukian, Los Angeles

This is a very large and very difficult scar to improve. Surgery will do very little if anything for you and may just result in more scaring or scaring of a nature that is different but not better. There are may Retin A - Hydroqiuinone cream preparations that may give you a more even surface pigmentation and blend in better. After this cream is on and drys a silicone paste can be placed on top and left to dry (Kelocote). I think this may help a little. You are probably best advised to see a seasoned and experienced dermatologist in your area who can further advise you. I do not feel chemical peels or dermabrasion or laser will help much but it may a little. This scar cannot be removed but it is very likely it can be made to look less obvious. My Best, Dr C
