Can a Thick Scarred Skin Graft on Knee Be Fixed?

I had a brown oval birthmark surgically removed 10 yrs ago and had a skin graph to cover the area its really thick and scarred is there any way to fix it or make it look better?

That depends on the type of graft (split thickness vs. full thickness), the size of the graft and the laxity of the surrounding skin. There is no single answer given the limited information in  your post.
