Can Subcision Be Performed on a Scar at the Same Time That It is Excised?

Also, isn't subcision only temporary? If the skin becomes saggy as it ages and loses collagen, wont the old scars that had subcision "reappear"?

If a scar was going to be excised, there would be no need to subcise it first.  One or the other procedure would be done to treat a scar.
