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.

Tatoo scar for tummy tuck and how to get rid of it

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.
