Without seeing what your scar looks like it is very difficult to recommend a treatment. In general, if your scar is flat to the surface of the skin then non-surgical treatments are used. If your scar is not flat (convex or cancave) then surgical scar revision is usually your best bet--but this is just a general guideline. You need to be examined by someone who treats scars. Good luck!
