Could Scar Revision Surgery Fix my Scar? (photo)

When I was born I instantly needed surgery to keep me alive as the result of a bad gut blockage. Now being 20 years old I hate showing my belly and wearing a bikini. I also find the more weight i gain the more tissue buldges around the scar. I have done some research and found my issie to be common and called tethering. I just wanted to know if scar revision surgery could help improve to look?
