I Have a Thick Huge Scar on my Foot from a Car Accident That Extends Just Above my Toes to my Ankle?

What can I do or see to get it permanently removed?

Scar revision for a scar on the foot near the ankles

Thick scars respond well to pulsed dye laser and IIT. If there is a functional problem, then a scar release procedure may be needed.  Expert in scar revision.

No perfect treatment. Pulsed dye laser treatments a good starting point

Unfortunately, there is no perfect treatment for your thick scar. A starting point might be a series of pulsed dye laser treatments, combined with localized cortisone injections combined with scar lessening silicon treatments.
