These scars are usually treated with a combination of tissue expansion to recruit more skin and serial excisions

Without any photos of your old burn scars, it is impossible to make recommendations regarding their treatment. What you should do is to consult with one or more reputable plastic surgeons in your area in order to obtain information which you can then used to determine any potential course of action.
