This can be improved with lasers or a surgical repair. I suggest you see an expert for a formal consultation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Scars in this area can be treated with lasers or microneedling. Some scars respond well to laser treatments alone. Make an appointment with a experienced physician that can advise you of your options. 


Best to you,
