Chest surgery scars can be improved dramatically with laser, IIT, and pressure treatment. They rarely require surgical excision.

Get rid of a scar? Think scar improvement
I agree with the other docs here. Your goal should be improvement. It is unrealistic to expect something to disappear completely, especially if it is a scar!
Hope this helps you!
It is impossible to get rid of a long standing scar. Sometimes the scar can be softened, flattened, made smaller, thinner with various technqiues. But overall, a scar is a permanent thing.
