What Type of Scar Removal Exists for a 30 Year Old Tummy Tuck That Keloid?

Also, I had flesh color tattoo applied, 25 years ago, to some of the tummy tuck scar and now regret it. How do you remove a flesh colored straight line tattoo? I would like to be anonymous please.

Scar revision is an option to remove this. You can excise the scar in total but it might come back. I would consider a geometric line closure and then you can conservatively resurface it with a laser to further improve the appearance of the scar.
